Airthrey Lodge Stud is situated in the heart of horse country in Cambridge, Waikato. We are a small boutique stud specialising in breeding Clydesdale cross sporthorses. We aim to produce youngstock that are sensible, talented, trainable and great all rounders. The stud has a small band of broodmares, and youngstock are advertised for sale when they become available. We welcome enquiries from outside mare owners wishing to breed to our resident stallion Airthrey Highlander (Bowie). Bowie is a 17hh bay Clydesdale/TB stallion who, after becoming a successful showjumper up to and including Grand Prix level, switched codes to dressage where he achieved Grand Prix status after only 12 months training with the very capable Bill Noble. Bowie continues to compete at the highest level and most recently won the coveted 2014 Dressage Horse of the Year title. Bowie is by Clydesdale stallion Glendevon Commander (who also sired Olympic showjumper NZ Madison) out of a well performed thoroughbred mare, About Time (Coober Prince).
