Est 1990 - Breeders of Baroque riding horses

Above all else, the Classical Sporthorse Stud is an 'ethical' breeder. 


Integrity is the corner stone of our stud and we are discriminate breeders who do not breed for the 'sake of having something to sell'. Every pairing of our horses is 'thought out' to ensure each individual has the form, function, racial purity and trainability - the whole package

 

From conception to adulthood, our horses are given every opportunity to develop to their 'optimum' both physically and mentally. Correct feeding (low sugar, low starch) mineral and vitamin regime, good quality pasture, vaccinations, hoof care, teeth and every aspect of their welfare is thorough and consistent. During the day they are on pasture in a safe horse friendly environment where they can develop good social skills. Our stallion is socialised and all our horses live in a 'family environment' both day and night.

 

From birth they receive an ongoing 'kind, calm and educated' training methodology that is based on constant reward. This creates a happy, respectful horse with a big personality who wants to please. Importantly, they are given time to just be 'horses' and grow and develop physically.


It goes without saying that their future well-being is our 'number one' priority. We will only sell our horses to 'like minded' riders / trainers / breeders. We prefer to breed less, better quality horses - keeping them until adulthood, giving them a thorough education in hand before starting them under saddle (minimum 4 - 5 years). Their ongoing education is based on proven 'classical principals' . In fairness to our horses we will not sell to dealers, uneducated riders or novice owners. If you choose to purchase one of our trained horses we offer rider training so that you can build a relationship with the horse before it leaves us.

 

CSS breeds purebred Friesian, purebred Andalusian (grey or black) and Warlander (black and grey).
