We started inevitably with ponies as teenagers and progressed on to breeding horses.Our first purchase was a yearling filly by Cavalier Royale(Ballyshan Lady) who in turn has bred some lovely horses namely Ballyshan Arkansas who competed at The World Championships in 2008 in Lanaken Belgium and Sequoyah's Ballyshan Versace who is owned by Sequoyah Farms in America and is competing with Silver Olympic Medallist Peter Leone.We strive to use some of the best stallions available to us and this year includes stallions such as Verdi,Russell,Mermus R and Capitolist.Our aim is to breed quality horses aimed at both the showjumping and eventing markets and we are absolutely delighted that the Ballyshan name has been seen out so often and so consistently over the last few years with progeny in the UK,Ireland and The USA.
