STUD SEASON 2020 - COVID 19 STATEMENT as of 20TH APRIL 2020
After consultation with our stud vets, Sussex Equine Hospital and following guidelines from DEFRA, BEVA and RCVS we are open for business of taking mares into the stud with strict COVID-19 bio-security measures.
We are working together with Sussex Equine Hospital's specialist reproduction vet team who will be carrying out relevant swabs, scans (pre and post ovulation), inseminations and pregnancy confirmations.
We have put measures in place to comply with social distancing, PPE and sanitising for all aspects of stud work undertaken.
We have a team of accomplished staff here to handle mares, foals and stallions.
We are undertaking a risk assessment for every horse arriving at stud to ensure stud work can be carried out safely and efficiently in line with social distancing procedures.
We have high quality stocks in a quiet specialist breeding barn.
We have 11 world class stallions available for fresh/chilled semen that are stabled here on site, plus frozen semen from 7 others including GCT GP Champion Don VHP Z.
We are social distancing on mare drop offs and pick ups. We will unload/load your mare ourselves.
We will be requesting for all paperwork to be done electronically and payment by BACS or debit/credit card.
We have over 35 years of proven experience of running a successful stud with Shirley Light being a qualified Advanced AI technician with over 18 years qualified experience. We specialise in taking on problematic mares with known breeding difficulties.
We have vast professional knowledge that cannot be learned overnight and our reputation speaks for itself as being one of the UK's leading studs.
We collect semen 7 days a week, regardless of bank holidays. For mares here at the stud we inseminate with fresh semen straight after collecting, evaluating and extending.
We are currently happy to post semen out to you, providing you are inseminating with full veterinary swab and scanning work being undertaken. We do not encourage back yard breeding tactics and will not support it! We will not send semen if mares are not being scanned and confirmation may be requested from your vets.
We can send semen out Monday to Friday by Royal Mail special delivery for before 12 noon, however we cannot be held responsible if semen is delayed and this may change subject to Covid-19 developments.
We have a courier service we can recommend for semen required on Saturday/Sunday/Bank holidays or you can choose to source a courier yourself.

updates amd more on our Stallions!
Our stallions are all chosen for their talent, temperament and type,
along with their bloodlines. Their conformation allows them to compliment
a variety of mares in all disciplines.
All Stallions for 2020 can be viewed using the link above alternatively browse
through their details individually using the navigation on the left.
Please telephone to come and view any or all of them at a time convenient to yourself. Alternatively watch them competing at shows all over the south of England (and occasionally further afield!) Young stock can also be seen. The BSJA Stallions have won their prize money in their own right and have not been upgraded in any way.
We are a family concern and are therefore flexible to your needs. Please do not hesitate to
contact us with any questions you may have.
