Caring for You and Your Stallion
From the moment your stallion arrives our experienced team will endeavour to ensure your stallions’ individual requirements are fully met.
To us, every visiting and resident horse is a VIP. Your stallion will receive outstanding care and treatment from our passionate and hard-working team. In our tailor-made facility we can offer a bespoke management that puts equine welfare at the very centre of what we do. Stallion AI Services is the UK’S leading equine semen collection centre and we pride ourselves on the first class facilities and care we can offer you and your stallion.
Our feeding regime is optimised according to the latest development in equine nutrition science. Our dedicated Spillers nutritionist makes frequent yard visits, and a fully functioning weigh bridge on site enable precise monitoring of each stallion’s optimum body weight and condition. Every stallion on centre receives daily SPM-20 as part of the livery package to maximise their semen quality.
Our stables have been custom built with safety and equine well-being in mind, with large, bright and airy individual boxes that give each stallion his privacy, while offering outside views and plenty of opportunities for entertainment.
We are proud to be one of very few stallion centres that can offer not only personalised exercise options for your stallions, making use of our state-of-the art horse walker, round pen and arena, but we also have safe individual turnout paddocks to give our guests that all important chance to relax and simply be a horse, while keeping them safe at all times.
Above all, we know that every horse is different, and our team are always happy to discuss your individual requirements to develop a management routine that suits you and your stallion’s needs.
You as an owner are as important to us as your stallion and we like to maintain regular contact with you whilst your stallion is in residence.
We know how essential it is to market your stallion effectively and we offer an excellent promotion package free of charge for all stallions using our centre. Your stallion will receive his own private web page on our website which is looked at by breeders worldwide. Resident and ‘walk in’ stallions appear in our annual stallion directory which is sent out to over 700 mare owners each year, stallions shows, open days, vets and studs all over the country for maximum exposure. Furthermore, we advertise regularly in major equine publications and attend the main stallion shows and events to help promote our stallions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STALLION OWNERS
All stallions arriving at Stallion AI Services MUST complete our pre-entry health check (EVA, EIA, Strangles and CEM) and be fully vaccinated for Flu before arriving. This is essential to ensure that the semen is disease free for the protection of all horses visiting the unit.
We advise that mare owners make their own delivery arrangement or use the same day delivery service, when chilled semen is required on a Sunday, Monday and bank holidays.
All semen will be examined under a microscope for motility and density. It will only be dispatched if considered to be of good quality. However, no guarantee on the fertility of semen can be given since so many other factors are relevant to a mare becoming pregnant.
