Balinmore Stud was established in 1986 initially as a hobby breeding purebred Irish Draught horses as at this time the breed was on the Rare Breed Survival Trust List. Following the purchase of two RID breeding mares the stud enjoyed major successes in the show ring with their progeny and purchased the first RID Stallion Knockboy Hero. Over the years the stud has stood many RID Stallions including Riverbank, Rebelara, Young Prospect, Attwood Black Laughton.

Balinmore Stud presently stands the RID Class 1 Stallion Skip and Sea and the APTO Approved Andalusian Stallion Ribamontan.

Balinmore Stud is now one of the longest established and most successful Irish Draught Stud. Our progeny have won major County Show Championships, Blue Chip Qualifiers, NFU Youngstock Championships, HOYS, and National Supreme and Reserve Supreme Championships on several occasions.

More recently Balinmore Stud has started breeding Connemara ponies! We presently have two Class 1 Connemara mares breeding and two Class 1 Connemara fillies.

We usually have some youngstock available to purchase and foals may be booked prior to arrival. Chilled Semen is available from both Skip and Sea and Ribamontan.

The stud is set in some 200 acres of farmland in a quiet rural location just outside the village of Bewholme.

Visitors are most welcome at any time of the year by prior appointment.
