Our brand new stud building has been designed and built to complete and support the full breeding cycle from collecting semen to delivering foals.

Bob Livock who owns and runs KL Stud is an experienced horseman and has been involved with stallion handling and stud work for most of his life.  

KL Stud stallions include Graf Quidam, a Silver Elite stallion, who's sire was the famous Quidam de Revell, Olympic medal winning stallion. Graf's progeny are careful with enormous scope and are successfully competing in the show jumping circuit around Europe. 

Honeybrook Crosby produces quality youngsters who are winning and delivering success in eventing, dressage and showjumping.  Most recently one of our homebred 6 year olds qulaified for the 2013 Hickstead Novice finals to be held in the International ring.

We also have Larduc. Larduc was one of only a handful of stallions to pass his 100 day performance test with maximum score in all three disciplines! He excelled in Grand Prix dressage, show jumping and International eventing and his youngsters have shown to have magnificent movement and presence.

We have a number of stallions available and our aim is to maintain quality breeding lines and ensure we select the right match for you and your mare.
