Nina Barbour and Oliver Townend established their stud partnership in 2009. Having visited industry-leading studs throughout the USA, Ireland and the rest of Europe to investigate different systems and design concepts, their vision is to create a world-renowned breeding establishment.
The primary objective is to produce top class event horses for both national and international markets, with the emphasis being placed on traditional Irish and thoroughbred bloodlines. They have sourced some exceptional stallions as the breeding foundation for Harthill Stud. These stallions are an exciting collection for outside breeders, with options to suit most sport horse mares, backed up with advice based on our in-depth knowledge of the competition industry.
Harthill’s initial base has been established at Egerton Hall Farm, where the state-of-the-art facilities have been set up to cater for your mare and foal’s every need. Mares and young stock are welcome for any length of stay, and AI packages are available both using our own stallions’ semen, or any outside stallion of your choice.
