We care, your horse matters to us, we cater for individual requirements
With 22 years of experience with equine reproduction, Glenwood first started out as a training and livery establishment with breeding as a part of things. Everything has always been to a high standard, producing and turning out horses for Showing, Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing as well as producing horses for at least five joint Masters of Foxhounds. So, in turn the Stud is run to standards which comply with DEFRA and is a semen collection centre.
Glenwood has also become one of only a few studs in Britain to be awarded the coveted British Equestrian Federation's "Breeder's Quality Mark" following a most stringent approval inspection of the Stud in which every aspect of the business was assessed. The scheme has the objective of giving added confidence to breeders of horses/ponies with respect to skill/welfare/record keeping regarding their mares whilst they are at stud. Glenwood Stud feels very honoured to have achieved this award having attained the high standards necessary for approval.
We are very proud to have been awarded the Breeders Quality Mark for Excellence in 2005. Being one Stud to pass the rigorous checks and inspections. We are therefore more than happy to advise and guide you through any queries you may have. We use our experience to help clients achieve optimal pregnancy rates for their mare.
We work closely with an Equine Veterinary Practice, therefore we can offer competitive rates on reproduction packages. These packages cover our own 'in house' stallions and for chilled or frozen semen from outside.
We also have a very good working relationship, with both many studs within the UK and abroad, which helps to contribute to pregnancy rates.
We have a fully equipped AI laboratory, to enable us to send out semen and store frozen semen on our premises.
We offer a high standard of livery ranging from DIY to full, individual paddocks, horse walker, indoor and outdoor schools. Individual needs cater for and lessons also available.
We offer mares to come to stud for foaling - walk in stallions for collection and natural covering - we can import chilled and frozen semen from any stallion of your choice - we offer embryo transfer - assistance in weaning of foals.
