well supplied with Stallion Guides. When we diverted the stud into
breeding endurance and competition horses in 1989, we were
amazed that there was no comprehensive Stallion Guide
to inform mare owners of what stallions were available.
Now, with the common use of AI, there is even more of
an importance to have a fully inclusive Stallion Guide offering
stallions throughout Europe the chance to receive mares.’
is it seen & distributed -
With 4,500 copies printed, the Competition Stallion
Guide is a quality
publication that as well as being available online, was distributed at
all major breeding events throughout 2017 including:-
The Stallion showcase, British Stallion Event, BEF Futurity Events throughout
the UK, All Major Competition Horse Sales, Other Breeding and high profile
events. The 2018 Edition will be distributed at the same locations and
some new ones including Stallion Parades at the major events.
Information on the Competition Stallions 2018 Guide - It
was decided early on that all Stallions listed should be either formally
Graded or be Approved either by their own competition record or that of
their progeny. It is important to note that Competition Stallions is not
a Stud Book. So we have relied upon Stallion owners providing correct
information. We hope to develop further relationships with the various
Grading Studbooks as the years progress to be sure to include all Graded
or Approved Stallions in some form or another. All Stallions have an indication
as to which discipline their owners deem them most suited.
So if you are looking
for a Dressage stallion, Endurance stallion, Eventing stallion, Showjumping
stallion or Sports Pony Stallion they are easy to identify.
The Competition Stallions Guide provides high quality
information on particular breeding information alongside detailed stallion
information to enable mare owners to see what stallions are available
at stud and be able to make a considered decision as to which stallions
they want to follow up to compliment their mares.
