A small select stud of pure Arabian horses nestling in the Devon countryside on the northern fringe of the Dartmoor National Park,

between Exeter and Okehampton, close to the A30, M5 and Exeter airport.


We have pure bred Arabian horses of various Russian, Polish, Egyptian and other countries.


We focus on breeding our own horses using Champion stallions from around the world (including WH Justice, Excalibur EA, Wortex Kalliste) and, aside from our originally brought-in mares, horses that we have bred are now themselves breeding young stock.


We endeavour to match stallions to our mares to produce the best quality offspring whilst maintaining a range of bloodlines in our breeding programme.


Please see our Mares, Youngstock and Foals pages.


Other horses that we have bred are now being backed in readiness for ridden careers. These include our geldings and some of our mares.


Please see our Ridden Prospects page


Visitors are welcome by prior arrangement.

Their overall comment:

“ A super example of an endurance foal with harmonious lines and effortless movement, showing a lot of promise for the future.”

He is sociable, inquisitive, shows ‘panache’ and is the easiest colt foal that we have bred.
