MANAGEMENT

Millfield Stud is run by Sue Jaggar and Brian Thompson who have between them many years experience in showjumping and eventing, along with breeding and producing horses, with the emphasis on quality not quantity.  Also highly experienced in producing foals and young stock for gradings and sale. 

 

GRAZING 

Millfield Stud stands in 120 acres of well-fenced grassland amidst stunning scenery. The paddocks are maintained to the highest level with weeds controlled and droppings removed.  Fields are rotated annually and are also grazed by sheep throughout the year to keep them in prime condition.

 Visiting mares and or youngstock are kept in paddocks separated from the stud's own horses in small groups ensuring the mares well being and individual attention.

Millfield Stud is also a working farm with its own herd of pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle and Lleyn Sheep.

               

FOALING BOXES & STABLES

All the studs stables and foaling boxes are purpose built units fitted with automatic water drinkers.  In addition the large  foaling boxes are fitted with cameras which are monitored 24 hours a day on site during the foaling season.  

 

With ideas copied from the  Continental studs, the youngstock are kept in age groups in big crew yards with daily exercise throughout the winter, and turned out during the summer.  

SECURITY & CARE

Millfield Stud is also our home, meaning  24 hours a day 365 days a year on site supervision with the addition of 24 hour CCTV security.  

EXERCISE FACILITIES 

 We have a  purpose built 25m by 50m sand and fibre outdoor manage, a small indoor school with a waxes surface for loose schooling and training, a covered Clayden 5 horse walker and a sand round pen.

   

VETERINARY CARE 

Millfield Stud works in conjunction with Aireworth Vets based in Keighley which is a BEVA DEVRA approved AI centre offering excellent value packages to mare owners and individual attention at all stages of pregnancy and beyond.

Sue is a fully qualified AI technician, and having provided this service for many years along with Aireworth Vets and with excellent facilities, this culminates in an excellent veterinary care unit and very high conception rates.

Mares are taken for insemination by any Stallion world wide using fresh, chilled or frozen semen and embryo transfer (ET) is now available at very competitive rates.

The facilities at the stud include a  set of purposely designed and built  handling stocks and a veterinary laboratory 

So whether you are looking for somewhere  to get your mare in foal with first class  personal service, or somewhere where you can leave your mare to foal and keep it with us to production as a  sports horse, Millfield Stud can assist you with all or part of that journey.  

We look forward to meeting you and your horses.
