Wimborne Park Stud was established in 1994. It is owned and managed by veterinarian Dr Justine Donohoe. Starting off by breeding Australian Stock Horses, the stud has developed over the years to stand 3 warmblood stallions at stud and own a band of high quality broodmares that carry the worlds best bloodlines.
The cornerstone of the stud is the imported Hanoverian stallion Contenda (IMP), an elite performance stallion with worldclass bloodlines and performance record. Our second stallion is the homebred Australian Warmblood, Remembrance Day, a stunning stallion who represents the breeding found in our high quality mare line. Our Third stallion is the highly talented young stallion, Wimborne Confederate, a stallion by Contenda out of a head stud book Stedinger mare.
Wimborne Park Stud offers a Live YEARLING Guarantee and Pregnancy Guarantee with all fresh/chilled semen service fees. An offer which is unique in the todays horse industry.
In addition to standing the stallions at public stud Wimborne Park Stud breeds and sells purposebred progeny for dressage, eventing and showjumping. Visit our For Sale section to view progeny currently avilable for sale.
We also have a special "Designer Foal" program where you can breed any of our quality broodmares to the stallion of your choice. This program offers everybody an opportunity to breed with worldclass bloodlines without the high ownership costs of buying and caring for the mare. Add to this the affordability of a payment plan and anyone can breed their dream horse!
Our quality broodmare band has been built on the worlds best bloodlines such as Gribaldi (Kostolany/Ibikus), Stedinger (Sandro Hit/Landadel),Escudo 1 (Espri/Arkansas) as well as the quality Australian sires Ludendorf, Salute, Vivaldi, Domingo, Wesuw, Poetry in Motion (Pommery/Salute/Donnerhall), Flamboyant (XX) and Southern Cross Dorado.
