At Clements Equine we offer a variety of flexible services for the stallion, mare and youngstock owner. We have excellent facilities, an experienced team and working alongside Charlotte and Rob, who are both DEFRA qualified AI Technicians, are the stud team from internationally renowned vet practice, Rossdales LLP. Alongside all the facilities you would expect from a stud and collection centre – a well equipped laboratory, collection barn and insemination area – we also have all the comforts your horse needs throughout their stay here, including an 18m diameter horsewalker, ménage, lunge pen, post and railed stallion paddocks with 6’6″ fencing (to deter even the most ambitious!) and 25 paddocks ranging from nursery size upwards, all with post and rail or stud fencing. We treat every horse as an individual and tailor their routine accordingly, whether living out individually, in groups or stabled. We offer competitive packages and visitors are always welcome to come and see our yard and meet the horses.
We offer both walk in and resident stallion collection services – collecting for fresh inseminations on site, shipping 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. We have excellent facilities for stallions including a fully enclosed rubber floored collection barn, 6’6″ high post and rail stallion paddocks, a sand-pen, ménage and horse-walker, so whatever your stallion’s routine we can ensure he remains fit and happy throughout his stay with us.
We take mares on both short and long term residential basis for artificial insemination, embryo transfer and foaling. We offer comprehensive and competitive AI packages for fresh, chilled and frozen semen to the stallion of your choice, UK or worldwide. All vet work is carried out by the highly experienced stud vet team of Rossdales LLP. For mares using our own or walk in stallions we do not charge for stallion collections, with the added bonus of fresh semen being available. We have excellent facilities for stud work, foaling and the general care of your horse. For competition mares who may be recuperating from injury we have small paddocks and our solarium and other therapy treatments on hand. We have several large foaling boxes, all equipped with CCTV to enable us to monitor your mare closely and without intrusion 24 hours a day prior to foaling, and a large range of post and rail paddocks from nursery size upwards. We are flexible with mares and able to follow their normal routine as closely as possible, either stabled or living out individually or in small groups.
With over 40 acres of well established and maintained pasture, all with post and rail fencing, we offer short and long term boarding options. Mares and youngstock live out in small groups throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn. In winter months they are housed, either in small groups or pairs, in comfortable barns with outdoor yard accommodation and ad lib hay or haylage. Hard feed and balancers are specifically fed as required. Youngsters are not over handled but are well cared for, vaccinated, trimmed and wormed regularly.
Our breeding programme began around 15 years ago, with a lovely show jumper who had been very successful, including winning at the Horse of the Year Show. Since then our breeding operation has gradually grown to include six mares, and two licensed stallions. It’s very important to us that the mares we use in our breeding programme have performed themselves; our current broodmares include results up to 1.50m at international level. All our mares have demonstrated jumping ability themselves prior to being used. 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:
Please get in touch and let us know if you’re looking to purchase a youngster. From foals to newly broken four year olds, we would hope to have something to suit. All of our youngstock are passported with the AES or Breeders Elite studbooks and are microchipped.
