At Clements Equine we offer a wide range of equine services, based on our stud farm, near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. A family run business, we are extremely passionate about what we do, striving to breed and produce quality show jumpers, as well as running a busy stud with a full range of client services.
We breed, produce and sell quality sports horses, primarily show jumpers, using top bloodlines and proven performance mares to 1.60m level.
We stand our own stallions, Renkum Radetzky, Olinthos and Shannondale Delta, licenced with the AES and Breeders Elite, both of which are producing exciting offspring, with jump, movement and temperament.
Bloodlines currently in use in our breeding programme include Voltaire, Concorde, Nimmerdor, Corbretti, Lord, Cavalier Royale, Animo, Renkum Valentino, Ard VDL Douglas, Crusing, Touchdown, Diamant de Semilly, Quick Star and many more. Stallions used alongside our own in recent seasons include Hickstead White, Untouchable, Cabrio Z and I’m Special de Muze amongst others.
Our stud and AI centre offers services for both mare and stallion owners. We have our own DEFRA approved stallion collection facility and offer walk in services for stallions including dummy training, semen collection and shipment, and also freezing services for UK, EU and worldwide shipping in conjunction with our long term vets, Rossdales LLP.
We also offer competitive AI and embryo transfers packages to inseminate fresh, chilled or frozen semen. All stud work is completed by Rossdales LLP, whose dedicated stud team have extensive experience in reproductive work.
We also provide a foaling down service, we have excellent foaling facilities including 15 CCTV boxes, numerous nursery paddocks and an experienced team on hand 24 hours a day.
The expertise of our team, facilities and veterinary services available ensure that we remain a super choice for mare and stallion AI services in East Anglia and the UK.
We have also been providing full and part livery for many years, on a separate self contained yard within the farm, offering an excellent quality service with a focus on ensuring customer satisfaction is achieved through running a friendly yet professional yard. We have flexible livery packages which can be tailored to individual requirements and excellent facilities are available. We have an experienced team with a wealth of knowledge, whilst priding ourselves on being a happy, friendly yard where everyone is welcome.
We offer long term boarding services for broodmares and youngstock, raised in small same sex groups.
Short term livery is also available for breaking, schooling and rehabilitation. We have an excellent vet, farrier and chiropractor coupled with superb facilities including a horsewalker, solarium, Equibrium massage machine, water therapy boots and small turnout paddocks, meaning we are well equipped to aid in the recovery from injury.

Charlotte, formerly Clements (hence our business name!) has grown up in a horsey family surrounded with horses and ponies. She has competed successfully in junior and young rider show jumping competitions to 1.35m, and more recently in amateur classes. Charlotte set up Clements Equine in 2005 and over the last ten years the family farm has diversified to help the business grow. A qualified A.I Technician, Charlotte still enjoys riding but concentrates on running the stud and livery side of the business now.
Robert joined Clements Equine in 2010, and is Charlotte’s husband. Having previously worked at a busy Newmarket stud he is well placed to front the annual foaling operation and also facilitates the rolling schedule of improvements and alterations on the yard. Robert is also a qualified A.I Technician and in addition provides a key role in the paddock management business.
Paul is Charlotte’s father and heads up the paddock management side of the business. He also makes sure the paddocks on site are in tip top condition and is in charge of producing all the hay, haylage and straw for the horses. Alongside a lifelong love of horses Paul is also a championship winning breeder of Simmental and Aberdeen Angus cattle. He assists in the day to day running of the yard – when not busy on a tractor!
Colin runs his own yard in Hadleigh with his partner and fellow show-jumper Emily Hilton, both of whom are excellent producers of young horses. Colin has worked closely with us for several years, predominantly competing the show jumping team, and also assisting in the education of the young horses.
Sarah worked here several years ago and has recently returned after a break raising her family. Sarah is an all-round super groom so we are very pleased to have her back. Alongside her role here, Sarah also has four of her own horses, and a young family – good job she likes being busy!
