Armchair Breeding

How do you like the idea of breeding a foal from your own living room?

• What Is Armchair Breeding?
Plan and allow us, with the help of Brazilian reproduction specialists, Genetic Jump to create the young horse of your dreams. All of this without having to own either mare or stallion

•Why would I want to do it?
The economic situation of the past few years has undoubtedly resulted in some breeders down-sizing, suspending or even abandoning their passion and the hopes of one day breeding a sport horse with the talent to compete on an international stage. A risky business at best, a financial nightmare when unexpected medical emergencies occur – Lambridden Stud offers solutions to everyone wishing to avoid unnecessary pitfalls.

•How is it possible?
We will be joining forces with one of the top equine reproduction companies in the world, Genetic Jump, whom over the years has established a first-class reputation in embryo freezing and transfer, which will allow us to deliver a customized sport horse breeding service – sharing the fruits of their labors so you can realize your passion from the comfort of your armchair. Modern technology has enabled the world’s top competition mares to produce more than one foal a year, fulfilling a dual role in both sport and breeding. Thanks to their world-class herd of broodmares, Genetic Jump is able to offer you, the armchair breeder, with the opportunity to make choices using valuable genetics from mouthwatering bloodlines.

How Do I start?

Step 1 - Choose Your Mare
Lambridden Stud will provide a list of mares with impeccable pedigrees. You, the breeder, will make your decision based on your own research and competitive desires. Major studbooks provide complete on-line information with regard to performance testing, competition results, registered offspring, from which you can build a complete ancestral analysis.)

Step 2 - Choose Your Stallion
Choose your stallion. (Belief in their own breeding results has steered Genetic Jump to develop a roster of world-renowned stallions chosen for both breeding and performance excellence. You, the breeder, can conduct your own research and decide which stallion provides the best match for your chosen mare – or you may prefer to interchange Steps 1 and 2 and begin with a stallion if you have a particular favorite.

Step 3 - Sit back and wait for the moment when your foal is born
You have the option of allowing us to keep the recipient mare until the foal is born and ready for weaning.
