We have been agonising for some time over this decision, but the reality of running three businesses, and there only being 24 hours in a day, meant that something had to give.
We have been privileged to have Kings Gold as our stallion at stud and over the years we have built a heard of brood mares, all hand selected specifically to complement Kings Gold.
It has been hard work, but very rewarding. Year upon year we have produced a crop of Irish Sport Horses destined for greatness. We have started to see the older progeny started under saddle and beginning careers in their chosen discipline. There is nothing more satisfying than watching a young horse mature and knowing that we gave him the best start in life that a foal could possibly have.
We have been fortunate enough to to have met many lovely people over the years, with many of them becoming great friends.
We will gradually reduce our numbers over the coming year or so, with one or two youngsters being retained as our own riding horses.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us out over the years, and the new owners of our Shiprock babies for making what was once a dream, into a reality.
