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 we have a great selection of nine 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 due in 2017 are as follows...

We have used the very best stallions from Paul Schockemohle in Germany and Team Nijhof in the Netherlands for 2017 including:

Furstenball was champion stallion at his licensing and stallion performance test, Landeschampion and champion at the Bundeschampionship, champion stallion sire, winner of dressage advanced level/S level and VTV stallion of the year in 2013. In 2014, 3 of the 4 Oldenburg Landeschampions descended from Fürstenball. The 3 year old mare Fünf Sterne not only won the Oldenburg Landes-Reitpferdechampionat but also the Brilliantring of the Oldenburg Elite mare show this year. Amelie, also a daughter of Fürstenball won the silver medal at the Elite mare show. The first progeny have won Reit- and Dressurpferdeprüfungen and have brought their sire into the top group of the FN breeding value estimation with 170 points.

Sandro Hit's breeding record includes more than 180 licensed stallions, Champion Stallions, championship candidates, Grand Prix winners up to Olympians. He sired 11 Bundeschampions including the two-time Bundeschampion Poetin, who was sold for 2.5 million Euro. Sandro Hit was Bundeschampion and World Champion for six-year old dressage horses. His dam, Loretta, also produced Grand Prix winner Diamond Hit and Royal Hit and for this reason she might be the most influential mare all around the world of her generation.
