We started breeding around 15 years ago, with a successful show jumper whose wins had included Horse of the Year Show. Since then our breeding operation has gradually grown to include eight mares, and three licensed stallions. It’s very important to us that the mares we use in our breeding programme have performed themselves; our current broodmares have results in sport up to 1.50m at international level. All our mares have demonstrated jumping ability themselves prior to being used, and come from strong dam lines with proven performance in sport. They all carry exceptional bloodlines, move well and are well put together.
We use our own stallions in our breeding programme, and also out-cross to some of the best European bloodlines, both proven performers and also using exciting up and coming stallions. We choose the stallions we use based on their ability, trainability and type, with of course excellent conformation and athleticism.
We always have a selection of quality youngsters with top class bloodlines, bred to excel in show-jumping or eventing. Bloodlines in our current youngstock include:
Animo, Cavalier Royale, Cobretti, Concorde, Cruising, Darco, Diamant De Semilly, Fabrice van Overis, For Pleasure, Hermès D’Authieux, Hickstead White, I’m Special de Muze, Nimmerdor, Renkum Offendor, Renkum Radetzky, Shannondale Delta, Touchdown, Untouchable, VDL Douglas and Voltaire.
Please get in touch and let us know if you’re looking to purchase a youngster. From foals to newly broken four year olds and horses contesting young horse and international classes we would hope to have something to suit. All of our youngstock are British Bred and passported with the AES or Breeders Elite studbooks.
Coming Soon – We will be updating the site this Spring to include profiles of all our broodmares and youngstock.
We offer both walk in and resident stallion collection services, we can collect and inseminate on site, ship chilled semen throughout the UK and working alongside Newmarket vets Rossdales LLP, we are able to offer test freezing and freezing services. We also provide dummy training for stallions.
