Faside Stud nr Edinburgh

Welcome to Faside Stud

Faside Stud breeds the highest quality dressage horses. We combine the excellent bloodlines of our mares with the best stallions in Europe to produce horses that have the potential to go to the top in their sport.  We have a super selection of foals and youngsters available whether you are looking for your next dressage superstar or horse of a lifetime. 

By breeding the best to the best Faside Stud hope to produce horses who are sound, athletic and trainable. Temperament, rideabailty, long term soundness, expressive movement and correct conformation are the top priorities in our breeding programme.

Every foal is handled from birth. They grown up in herds with suitable companions to learn valuable social skills and spend as much time as possible outdoors.  All our foals are microchipped, DNA verified and passported. 

We started off breeding a couple of foals each year, keeping most of our fillies as future breeding mares.  Our reputation has grown for breeding top class dressage horses and in 2014 we have a great selection of nine foals available for sale.

In 2014 we featured on the BBC!  

There are extensive videos of our foals and youngstock on our Youtube Channel.  The foals born in 2014 are as follows...
