There are currently around 60 resident mares on the stud that are boarded here throughout the year. Whitsbury Manor Stud owns approximately half of these mares, however, the other half are boarded permanently by a variety of private clients. These clients vary between small owner-breeders with just one mare to truly commercial breeders with nine mares of their own. All of our clients benefit from the superb boarding facilities and the stud’s decades of experience in the management of mares. We also offer a significant concession in the boarding fees of permanent mares.
The stud itself consists of over 550 acres of secure post and rail paddocks situated on the chalk of the Hampshire Downs which provides exceptional drainage and is ideal for ensuring good bone growth in developing youngstock. There are 150 stables which include a central foaling yard from which we provide a comprehensive foaling service.
The facilities include a yard for maiden and barren mares which consists of two barns, a horse walker and dry all-weather wood chip paddocks for winter turn-outs. There is also a separate isolation yard of 18 boxes in order that we can provide the complete spectrum of services in managing the interests of our clients.
We strive to offer extremely competitive rates and If you would like to come and view our facilities or discuss any of our services, please contact Phil Haworth on 01725 518254 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
