Artificial Insemination (AI)
We collect semen from our own stallions and we offer a nation wide distribution of semen across the UK with excellent fertility results. By mounting a dummy horse our stallions will avoid risks such as injury, behaviour problems or cross contamination of sexually transmitted diseases, which can be associated with stallions covering mares naturally.
Visiting mares are taken at livery for AI with fresh or chilled semen, which includes semen that has been sent from non-UK Hanoverian stallions. Mares should arrive prior to 'coming in season' and will be constantly monitored to obtain the optimum timing for insemination.
We do have a small number of livery clients whose horses are stabled with us. These are typically full livery clients who train regularly with Suzanne. We also look after a number of mares and youngsters that are on field livery. Owners sometimes ask us to run foals on or perhaps take their youngster through to ridden work which we class as training livery.
Pregnant mares come to us for foaling livery and occasionally we have horses staying with us on short term full livery.
Suzanne teaches a number of clients who bring their own horses to the yard for lessons. She also runs clinics in the UK and Germany.
