Services

BROODMARES

Woburn Stud provides services for permanent and temporary boarding mares during the breeding season. We are in an excellent location with easy access to the M1 and within an hour’s drive from Newmarket for walk in mares. We also offer our clients advice about mating plans and we can discuss suitable sales for their stock. We have an excellent affordable 'stud package' which keeps the veterinary costs for breeding transparent and assists breeders to form a more dependable budget for veterinary costs for their broodmares. We have our own horse-box which enables us to take mares to be covered at any time without having to rely on a transport company.

FOALING

Our foaling facilities include 24 hour surveillance, light and airy boxes fitted with heat lamps and pristine nursery paddocks. Our experience in foaling mares along with the support of our excellent veterinary surgeons Rossdale & Partners gives our clients peace of mind during the foaling season.

SALES PREPARATION

At Woburn Stud we have access to the miles of rolling hills that are Woburn Park which is the perfect setting to prepare horses for the sales. We can take the stress out of the sales by using our expertise to produce your animal to the highest possible standard.  We will place it in the correct sale therefore giving your horse the best possible chance. Our experience at the sales and our connections with trainers and agents are the reason why people send their horses to be part of the Keith Harte Bloodstock Ltd consignment each year.
