SILVESTER - BEF Champion Showjumping Sire and Reserve Champion Eventing Sire. Silvester is a top class showjumping and eventing stallion with an exceptional temperament.

He was the overall winner (dressage, eventing and showjumping) at his SEIB Young Horse Evaluation, scoring 9 plus for jumping, dressage and temperament.

His forbears have competed at two Olympics and have won numerous Nations Cups. Silvester has exceptionally high fertility, 92%, even with less easy mares.

He is an intelligent stallion with an enthusiastic but relaxed temperament which he passes on to progeny.

His genetic generosity has led to outstanding consistent breeding success. To date at the Futurity Evaluations his progeny have been awarded: 12 Elites (1 dressage, 2 eventing and 9 showjumping) 73 Golds (dressage, eventing and showjumping).

Silvester now has the unique distinction of having Elite progeny in all three disciplines, proof of his quality and versatility. His progeny are proving highly trainable, exceptional competition horses.

TESTIMONIALS ------------------------

“Silvester’s Finesse continues to be an exciting prospect. She has great trainability in every phase and is brave but kind. I am looking forward to moving her up to Novice early this spring, aiming to finish the year at the 6 year old National Championships. Nessie is a lovely horse to have on the yard, and has a bit of extra sparkle that will hopefully take her up the levels.” Ros Canter

“I had the pleasure of eventing In Vogue II for her breeder Brigitte Jacquillard in the 2014 season. She has a fabulous temperament and is very scopey and brave. She went from a novice to 2* in one season and took everything in her stride. Silvester is becoming better known on the eventing circuit and I wouldn't hesitate in taking on another of his progeny for this job.” Rosie Fry

“Our first foal by Silvester had so many of his sire’s qualities; presence, wonderful movement and great temperament. We had no hesitation in using Silvester again to breed from two mares. All our mares are bred by AI, so the quality of semen is very important to us. In every case our mares have held to the first insemination using Silvester’s semen. We are looking forward to the safe arrival of two more Silvester foals in May ” Joan Cadzow, Duncrahill Stud

“Alice is the most wonderful yearling. She already has fantastic and exciting paces, is very easy to handle with very good manners and a lovely temperament. We were thrilled with Silvester as the sire, he is top class and we would definitely use him with our mare again.” Philippa and Martin Clunes

“Silvester’s Darcy lives up to her name. She looks like and has the gentle temperament of her gorgeous father and moves, well, like a famous ballerina. We have yet to back her but she walks in hand beautifully. The best thing about her though is her personality. She is endlessly curious but not in a mischievous way and bounds over to us when we appear or call her name, whether in the stable or in the paddock. She really enjoys contact with all animals: dogs, cats, people and of course other horses.” Rene Olivieri

"Silvester’s conformation, athleticism and kind nature are clear to see. What is equally impressive when you look further is his genetic generosity - the consistency with which he produces trainable high quality foals with dams of a wide range of breeds." Michael Peace

"I have had the privilege of working with WG Stud for many years. All three stallions are highly fertile with excellent conception rates even in older or tricky mares. The team behind them are highly experienced and semen is available seven days a week, which greatly helps with the breeding process." Sam Cutts MA VetMB MRCVS.

“I have used Silvester three times and will certainly do so again. His superb foals keep me coming back. First time I wondered if I was being extravagant but the offspring now prove he is worth every penny. We are competing our first four y.o. this year and she is a very exciting prospect. Silvester is a serious sport horse sire and a lovely person and consistently passes on his top class qualities.” Niki Ryan

"I now have a very smart Silvester four year old on my yard. He has a super temperament with great attitude and potential" Izzy Taylor
