Stud Medicine

We offer comprehensive packages for pregnancy scanning, preparation for natural cover, artificial insemination (fresh and frozen semen) and embryo transfer alongside full advice and care of your mare throughout pregnancy and post foaling.

We are able to advise on pre-breeding checks and health requirements.  Your mare will require a CEM swab and EVA blood test before being admitted to stud.

We have several ultrasound machines to assess the stage of the mare’s cycle and to check for pregnancy.

We have the experience and the facilities to undertake both chilled and frozen semen AI. Details of our AI packages are given below.

We offer competitively priced packages, including the use of Fresh, Chilled, and Frozen Semen for both Natural Cover and Artificial Insemination of Mares.
Alternatively we are happy to accommodate arrangements for individual scanning and AI.

All these services can be carried out at your yard, saving for you and your horse all the stress of travelling.

As breeding your mare can be a daunting decision both economically and emotionally, we will be on hand to assist you all the way to make sure everything is under control, including your budget, and that all your questions are answered.

If you are thinking of using any of our equine reproductive services, please contact the practice so we can discuss your thoughts and get everything in place, well in advance of the covering/AI or collection date.

Remember, preparation and planning are of vital importance for a successful equine reproductive outcome.
