We first established The Bolingbroke Stud in 2006, and have been breeding pure bred Spanish Horses ever since. Our vision was to create a very traditionally shaped baroque horse, but with an infusion of more modern blood, taking the best of both old and new, resulting in a beautiful yet versatile stamp of a PRE horse predisposed to high school and the equestrian arts.
We have always chosen very old blooded, extravagant moving Carthusian stallions like Romantico IV and Bondadoso JR II and put them to slightly more modern mares with straight action, true to type conformationally and most importantly kind tempered.
As a result, the quality of foals that our stock have produced has been extremely high and really coined the stamp we are aiming to breed.
More recently, by chance we have been consistently producing unusual colours such as all different shades of Dun with the primitive markings typically synonymous with the Dun gene and also Seal Brown! Both of these colours seem to be appearing year after year which is very exciting.
After they are born, all of our foals are handled and played with on a daily basis so that when they leave to join their new homes they are confident and self assured, but also respectful of humans, and we take a vested interest in the horses they go on to become offering advice from foal to full grown!
