Mare owners invited to grading

For the first time in six years Writtle College will be hosting a mare grading event in conjunction with Sport Horse Breeding Great Britain (SHB GB).

The event will be held at Writtle College’s Equine Training & Development Centre at the Cow Watering Campus on 22 September.

Five broodmares from the college’s Lordships Stud will be presented including two who were bred at the college stud.

Mare owners from across the region are invited to present their broodmares at the event, subject to eligibility.

In the evening there will be an opportunity for breeders to showcase their young horses, with progeny from Writtle College’s Lordships Stud also on display.

Amy Mills, lecturer in Equine Science and a breeding & reproduction specialist, said: "We are inviting breeders and owners to show off their young horses to other sport horse breeders and interested parties. There will be no judges, and no qualifications required to enter, as it is aimed as a shop window to raise awareness of the quality of young horses available locally."

There will be no entry fee to the young horse evening event, but donations will be welcomed to cover running costs.
