The Stud

A fully equipped modern stud in a beautiful setting

Yorton Farm Stud is located in the village of Leighton, near Welshpool at the Victorian-built Leighton Farm in 300 acres of the beautiful Powys countryside.

The historic Leighton Farm was a model farm where rational farming methods were employed using techniques derived from science and industry in the 1850s. It was characteristic of its period but especially notable for its scale.

The Grade 1 listed buildings have been tastefully restored and converted with the best possible standards of equine care in mind to house one of the country’s fastest growing stud farms. With well-lit, spacious and ventilated stables, specialist CCTV monitored foaling units and a range of paddocks suited to mares and young stock of different ages, Yorton Farm is a fully equipped modern stud.

The highest standards of animal welfare

Constant vigilance in providing the highest standards of care to each and every animal is the overriding concern. Whether your mare is visiting a stallion, boarding or at Yorton Farm Stud for specialist foaling care, the service is founded on the personal touch.

Over the past 12 years we have developed a leading stallion roster and broodmare band and are now recognised as one of Britain’s fastest growing NH breeding operations. From humble beginnings foaling mares for nearby contacts the family-run business outgrew its Shropshire home, with 300 mares visiting the farm in the year before the October 2013 move to Leighton Farm.

Get involved in the World of National Hunt Racing

Raw material for the NH industry can only be produced in the breeding sheds, and our six-strong roster of Jump stallions offers something for every broodmare owner. Yorton supports those stallions by mating them with members of our own broodmare band and through following their stock into the ring at public auction – we have to be commercial, but we are the only UK NH stud farm which actively supports and purchases from breeders who use our sires.

“It is our passion to continually innovate and inspire progression within the NH industry - it’s at the heart of everything we do.”

We’re also passionate about making horse ownership accessible to everyone and encourage people, whether they be novices or familiar with the industry to get involved and enjoy the thrill of owning a potential winner. Become part of something special and join in the fun.

“Yorton ranks among the best NH breeders in the UK, Ireland & France. We have bought many top class youngstock from the farm both privately and at public auction. Most importantly they go on to be successful for us in the sale ring and for our clients on the  racetrack."
