The Billy Stud is now in its 17th year but it all started from small beginings??
William and Donal have been great friends for many years since back when William was based with the late Cyril Light at the Brendon Stud. They have always bought and sold a few horses together. With William?s talent as a jockey and Donal?s knowledge and eye for a horse, led them to some successful purchases, one of them being a mare called Tatum.
Little did they realize at the time that Tatum would go on to become the foundation mare of the Billy Stud.
Tatum was an Irish bred mare Clover hill/ Sky Boy.
From the offset William & Donal thought that by crossing great Irish blood lines with some top European stallions had the potential to produce some fantastic sport horses for both Showjumping and Eventing. William states, ? to be a great jumper in todays classes, the horses have to not only have great technique and ability they also need to have a lot of blood...
