About Us

Excel Equine was started in Southland by Tracie and Grant Beasley and spent 4 wonderful years supporting the Southland Equestrian Community, followed by one year in Taupo after their move north. Excel Equine returned south again to Gore in March 2022 when it was purchased by Suzanne Black. 

Suzanne and her partner Kieran live on a lifestyle block near Gore, where Suzanne owns a Physiotherapy Private practice and works her day job as a physiotherapist and Kieran runs his own massage therapy business. 

Suzanne is a keen eventer and show jumper as well as participating in the local A&P shows. Her team of 3 horses (Colton, Cass & Rocky) keeps her busy and they are testament to the use of the wonder product range that Excel Equine sell. 

Excel Equine are Exclusive NZ distributors for the Performa Ride Riding tights and apparel that have proved very popular since they have been in NZ. The retail side of the business includes the above products as well as the  Dynavyte VetproNettex, HSE, NTR, Provida by Four Flax and Eventor ranges along with some one off products from other suppliers we have found along the way. 

All of our products are available to purchase online 24/7 or you can contact us to make an appointment to visit and try on at our property near Gore. 

We have a list of the Performa Ride retailers available on our stockist’s page if you would like to buy from your local saddlery. Our Performa Ride range of products continues to expand, and new products will be uploaded onto our website as they come in to stock. Not all items will be stocked in your local store, but they are available to all stockists nationwide, so just call in and ask 

Excel Equine continues to grow steadily, we are always looking for new retailers to sell our merchandise and other innovative, good quality products to bring to our ever-expanding client base.

So!! Lets go shopping :-)
