About Us

Kylemore Stud was set up by husband and wife team Olive and Ivor Broderick in 1997. Both Olive and Ivor had been involved in breeding and competition for many years, and felt that they should offer breeders the highest standard and approach to sport horse breeding in Ireland. Olive is a fully qualified AI technician with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and DEFRA, and has extensive knowledge of fertility problems and practices with mares and stallions.

Kylemore Stud has breed and produced multiple international performance horses over many years. We have made very good connections with all the main European studs, and so can provide semen from whatever stallion our client wants to use.

In particular we have an excellent relationship with VDL Stud in Holland, one of Europe’s largest sport horse stud. This enables us to bring to Irish breeders a fantastic selection of stallions, both standing in Holland and in Kylemore Stud, plus the customer service you come to expect from Kylemore Stud, which is reflected in our ability to ensure live foal guarantees with almost all stallions available.

Our commitment  to our clients has led us to have world leading performance stallions available at our stud, such as Tyson, who resides here since 2016, and from 2020 onwards Billy Congo. Stallions of this calibre rarely come to Ireland to stand at stud, but due to our reputation and honesty we were able to secure these stallions for Irish breeders.

We have been dealing with clients from all over Europe and America, and now source horses for all types of clients.

Kylemore Stud also provide a consultation service from where we will find for you the horse you have always wanted!!! Be it a broodmare who has competed, or a suitable amateur horse, to an RID mare or foal, to a top international competition horse, we are the ones who will find you the perfect horse!
