World Class Dressage & Event Horses

Stratton Stud is located in a tranquil rural location 2 miles from the nearest village in 35 acres of deepest Oxfordshire.

Our goal is to breed world class dressage and event horses, either from home-bred stock, or by carefully selecting top quality young foals to ‘bring on’ with particular emphasis on superb movement and a kind trainable temperament.

Sire and Stallion lines that we have available are Don Dante (our own stallion), Sandro Hit, Rubinstein, De Niro, Weltmeyer, Florestan 1, Pik Bube, Donnerhall, Millennium.

Mares & Youngstock

Our horses have an idyllic existence, with much more than the minimum necessary grazing land available, to afford them a relaxed and stress-free life.

All of our youngstock are handled frequently from birth and receive regular hoof trimming, worming and veterinary care.

We often have youngstock by Don Dante and by his Sire, Dancier, for sale, and welcome visitors to the stud to view our youngstock and competition horses, by appointment. Please contact us to arrange a visit.

Don Dante Mare Nominations

We get why people buy abroad; big choice of bloodlines + proven performance, but if you’re buying a youngster abroad, ask yourself why it’s for sale! With the exception of Valegro, top horses are either expensive, or not for sale.

Breed it here and get what you really want without semen import hassles. Our own Stallion, Don Dante’s first foals, born in 2014, show great promise, having inherited his expressive movement, good temperament and confidence.

A superb mover with an exceptional temperament for a Stallion, Don Dante will undoubtedly produce first rate quality, easy to ride stock. He has no Rubinstein, Weltmeyer or Sandro Hit in his pedigree, so a useful outcross for those lines.
