Professional Breeding Advice

How to choose the right stallion

With so many choices available, how does an owner choose the ‘right’ stallion for their mare?

Should the focus be on pedigree? Race Performance? Conformation? What about the other mares being served by the stallion, or the size of the stallion’s book?

Should the decision be based on the commercial viability of the offspring? Is the stud’s location or reputation a deciding factor?

We can help you wade through the plethora of information available on the hundreds of stallions standing in Australia, plus those shuttling to Australia.
