About Our Stallion Services
Shelbourne Farm is a small family-run horse farm specializing in breeding and producing top-class sport horses. Our breeding philosophy is to ONLY breed International-caliber stallions and successful performance mares. We consider the quality of the mare to be very important in producing a good foal; hence our mares are selected for their competition successes and soundness. Our show-jumping mares have won one or more Grand-Prix classes; our eventing mares are Grade 1 and have competed successfully at the three-day level. By utilizing fresh chilled or frozen horse semen, we are able to select stallions from around the world to complement these mares. We also have a bank of frozen semen available, from both Europe and the U.S., from stallions that have been presented and chosen by us for their success and their potential for producing top class offspring.
Our young stock is carefully monitored throughout the growing phase. Likewise, constant attention from both owners and equine veterinarians is given to the horses. The youngsters live outside, in the European manner, "learning to be horses" first. Meticulous attention is paid to pasture management and nutrition. Our young stock are backed as two-year-olds and then turned away again until they are three. Their early training emphasizes producing a forward going young horse that is comfortable both inside and outside the riding ring.
