Take the opportunity to breed from your top class competition mare whilst you are still competing her by using a surrogate mare to carry the foal.  You can repeat this procedure more than once per breeding season using the chilled or fresh semen of your chosen stallion.

It’s difficult to find top class competition horses and when you have a mare at the height of her career its a valuable time to choose to breed.  Embryo transfer enables mares to reproduce and reduces any risk to their health or impact to their careers. We have worked with clients who have taken more than one embryo from their mare and allowed them to consider selling the mare when the time is right keeping her breeding lines and valuable foals.

What’s involved?

We have a purpose built embryo transfer facility and have top class facilities to manage your mare and the embryo transfer process.  Our experienced vets work with our stud team managing your mare in season and ensuring that recipient mares are also cycling in season with her in  preparation to receive her embryo.

Your competition mare will be inseminated with fresh or chilled semen when she is ovulating and around 8 days later the embryo created will then be removed from her uterus and transferred to a recipient mare to carry for the rest of the pregnancy term.  Your competition mare is then free to carry on competing!

We are able to provide you with recipient mares or are happy to work with any mares which you provide as recipients.  We are happy to discuss the best “types” of mares most suited to be recipients and can guide you through every step of this process.

We believe that we can offer you a quality service at a competitive cost, a cost comparison shows that we are up to  20% more competitive than other embryo transfer providers. It is our passion to breed top class competition horses and we hope that you will find our experienced and cost efficient service enables you to let us help you breed your next top class horse!
