Doghill Farm stud, which is home to “Doghill Quarter Horses”, is based just outside Cardiff in the stunning Vale of Glamorgan and is only 10 minutes from junction 33 of the M4.
We have a forward thinking AQHA breeding programme, which features both home grown and imported European and USA stock. We are known for consistently producing high quality, well bred, properly-started young horses, who have excellent conformation, the characteristic calm quarter horse temperament and the ability to do any job they are asked to do.
Our Quarter Horse breeding started in 2015, following on from Helen’s well established Lusitano stud. Our AQHA foundation mare “Acorn Flybynight” (Acorn) was bought in foal by Huw as a surprise gift for Helen because he’d forgotten his wedding anniversary. As he couldn’t find an appropriately bred Iberian broodmare to add to Helen’s Lusitano breeding herd without going to Portugal, he decided to buy an in-foal AQHA mare instead! The rest, as they say, is history!
From those very humble beginnings and one American Quarter Horse mare and foal, “Doghill Quarter Horses” has grown considerably and now as well as owning a significant number of exceptionally well bred AQHA mares with proven competition provenance (both imported and UK/home bred), it is also home to “Hobbits Rocky San”, a registered AQHA stallion who has both an exceptional reining pedigree and his own very distinguished competition career.
With over 250 acres of natural grazing land and large, naturally sheltered fields with all year turnout, Doghill Farm is a fabulous place for our foals to be born and our horses to call home.
