Introducing The Overbury Stallions 2011

This is the first in a series of blogs introducing Overbury Estate based businesses and what they do:-

Following a long standing tradition of a stud farm here at Overbury, Simon Sweeting and his family (who also own and operate Conduit Stud) have leased the Overbury Stud since the year 2000, launching the very successful Overbury Stallions Ltd and initially standing Kayf Tara.

The stud now stands a very impressive line up of five stallions: Bertolini, Kayf Tara, Proclamation, Sagamix and Schiaparelli.

As well as standing champion national hunt stallions, they also provide full time boarding services for mares and their offspring, advise on sales and consigns at all major stock sales and undertake foaling; this is done at Conduit Stud (75 foals are born there every year)

Simon employs a team of 7 dedicated, experienced staff, who offer a top quality service at keen prices.

Please visit their website at and check out Simon's blog for more information on what the team and horses are up to. Their offspring have already had a number of wins this year.
