Mare Services

 

West Kington Stud offers a complete breeding service, taking mares in for foaling, insemination and embryo transfer. 

A variety of stallions are resident to provide Fresh and Chilled semen throughout the breeding season, which can be seen on our 'Stallions at Stud 2024' page. Alongside these we have frozen semen from several hundred other stallions available from our frozen semen stores.

Our aim is to breed top competition horses with good temperaments, soundness and ability. We feel it is very important to give all youngsters a good basic training in general handling, loading, leading, etc, from an early age.
