Download stud fees

Visit of the stallions is possible at any time by appointment. The stud fee is due at the latest with the first insemination / coverage or the first semen shipment. It contains the costs for insemination in the stud farm. For maiden mares, mares without foals as well as for mares after a not normal birth, a swab sample is strongly recommended. Delivery and collection of the mares as well as insemination as well as veterinary examinations are also possible outside of business hours by arrangement, thus also in the evening or at the weekend.

Board prices:

  • Mares with foals: 16 € / day
  • without a foal: 14 € / day

Sperm order weekdays to 11 o’clock, Saturday to 10 o’clock. Sperm delivery overnight daily and from Saturday to Sunday. Shipping will be charged separately. Insemination with third-party stallions possible (also frozen semen). Reduction of the breeding fee up to 50% in the upcoming season for mares who did not conceive or not get a live foal.

Free re-covering in the following mating season for mares, the first time after the 1.7. covered / inseminated and not conceive.

The difference is in the detail - we'll take care of it!

Livery horses

Success and the welfare of the horse have always been our main priorities. Our extensive and well-equipped stud offers a magnificent home not only to our own horses – livery horses are welcome as well. Be it broodmares, riding horses, youngsters or oldies – at Gestüt Hörstein they will find everything they could wish for: a balanced and individual diet, reliable veterinary care and enough room to move about whilst being well looked after.
Our well-coordinated team will make sure that your horse won’t lack anything!
