The bloodlines of the horses are chosen with great care from the very best of European breeding using a combination of both old successful lines with the newest and most exciting modern dressage horses. Our selected mares include some of the best mother-lines world wide are carefully matched to the greatest stallions using both chilled and frozen semen.
All mares are foaled at home and the foals are attentively managed from birth. They are handled quietly and firmly to produce polite, confident individuals who want to please and are willing to learn. The horses are handled in a way which maximises trust and confidence. Their mental wellbeing is paramount to us in creating horses for top competition.
We are constantly complimented on how happy and well adjusted our horses are. The horses grow up secure in our sheltered pastures with access to large barns in both summer and winter. They live in groups where they can graze and play, growing up in a stress free environment and behaving as horses are meant to. We are convinced, and research has shown, that this regular natural exercise produces strong muscles and tendons as well as a good attitude to life and work.
Caledonia is a small stud where the horses receive careful individual attention and where they are given the best possible start in life to prepare them for a great future. All horses receive specialist veterinary treatment, excellent regular farriery, bespoke balanced feeding and are wormed and vaccinated to a meticulous programme.
