From early January to now there has been many a sleepless night for the staff at Highclere Stud. 45 foals have been successfully brought into the world by our hardworking and dedicated team. There is very exciting looking crop of foals on the ground now. Well done to everyone involved!
Here at Highclere Stud we welcome people with a thirst for knowledge and an aptitude for learning. We often have people join the team on work experience broadening their understanding of the industry and giving them a taste of life on a busy stud farm. Below is a letter of thanks from one such individual following his time here.
‘Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to work at Highclere Stud. It’s not everyday that a person like me, with limited experience of horses, gets an opportunity to work for a highly regarded and successful establishment like Highclere. The experience I gained was invaluable and I literally didn’t stop learning until the very last minute. All the staff were so patient with me and they guided me through excellently. Mornings with the farrier, overseeing veterinary procedures and being present at coverings helped my understanding of the Bloodstock world immensely. I cannot thank you enough.’
