Avonbrook Stud

Avonbrook stud is a small family run concern near Pershore in Worcestershire where the focus is very much on breeding quality horses with relaxed trainable temperaments and the potential to do every job from showing to eventing.

The senior stallion, Marcus Aurelius, is predominantly Crabbet Arabian with Davenport lines through his grandsire Ben Rabba. Through Ben Rabba he is also in direct male descent from Nasik - an important Crabbet line that was lost in the UK until the lease of Ben Rabba by Beatrice Paine for the 1979 and 1980 breeding seasons.

Marcus Aurelius has shown his ability to pass on his temperament, athleticism and quality to his
youngstock - the eldest of whom are competing at affiliated level in disciplines as diverse as
showjumping, endurance and ridden showing.

In 2018 he will stand in the UK by natural covering and frozen AI. Frozen semen stored in the UK
is also available for export to Europe. Stud fees are £800 purebred Arabian mares, £600 others. 50%
non-refundable deposit, 50% 48 hour live foal. Fees for packaging and transport of frozen semen
are payable directly to stallionai.com.

Mares with Arabian bloodlines must have been tested clear of the LFS (Lavender Foal Syndrome) gene. This can be carried out for around £30 on samples of mane/tail hair with root bulbs and the cost may be offset against the stud fee.

Premium awards are available from the Arab Horse Society on registration of progeny from mares approved within the scheme (open to all breeds and free to apply).  The nature and quantum of the awards are under review by the AHS Council.  Please refer to the Premium Performance Scheme website at www.ahs-premium.org.uk. for the current levels.

Limited stocks of frozen semen are held in Australia for use in Australia and New Zealand. For the
2017/18 breeding season this is being priced at a concessionary rate of AUS 650 for 3 doses and one
nominated mare. A reduced rate of AUS 400 will apply to any further nominations within the 3
dose package. Fees for packaging and transport are payable directly to Genemovers.
