Join us for our 2019 Open Day! With more than 70 foals to present, you're sure to find a favourite. We will show offspring from many top stallions, including Quabri de L'Isle, Rubin Royal, Desperados, Dream Boy, Fidertanz, Van Gogh, Jaguar Mail, Contendro, and Danone.
The day will start at 10am with the eventing and jumping foals, followed by the dressage foals in the afternoon.
Anna Ross and her team will be performing several ridden demonstrations throughout the day, and you can explore the stud and meet the residents.
Entry is completely free and there is no need to book tickets. Full-colour, glossy catalogues detailing all of the entries will be available on-the-day for just £3, and there is a BBQ and bar.
We hope to see you there!

More foals than ever! We presented 35 foals for the Oldenburg inspectors with fantastic feedback, and several found new owners on the day.

Some youngstock and broodmares were presented too and we enjoyed a ridden demonstration from Anna Ross.
2016 open day: 10 September
We are once again hosting the Oldenburg inspectors on our 2016 open day. They will be assessing foals and will commentate so you can learn about what they are looking for in top-class foals. Some will also be for sale. We'll be hosting ridden demos with some of our home-breds who are under saddle too. It is free entry and there will be food and drink aplenty. We look forward to welcoming you to the stud — children are also very welcome.
We are showcasing foals by stallions including: De Niro, For Romance, Johnson, Floriscount, Furstenball, Furst Romancier, Eyecatcher and many more
