To Breed or Not to Breed Training Day

20 June 2019

To Breed or Not to Breed  - Training Day 

How carefully do we assess the mare’s confirmation, temperament, ability and the cost before we decide to put her in foal? When choosing a stallion do you just look at what he’s achieved or should we be looking at his confirmation, temperament and off spring?

BHS North Region, Emma Greenland of Ivy House Stables and Mrs MacInnes are extremely excited to bring you a fascinating day of training covering:

  • Static and dynamic confirmation
  • Suitability of the mare and stallion for breeding purposes
  • Care of broodmares, stallions and foals
  • Signs of a mare in foal and the foaling process
  • The needs of the broodmare, stallion, foal and young stock
  • Collection (Depending upon the requirements of the stud on the day
