Pictus Stud.

Allsorts of Allsports horses.





We take great pride in breeding allsorts of allsports horses. We use only the best mares,sired by prolific stallions such as Welton crackerjack, Welton Ambassador, Jumbo,Dance with Wolves,Stanhopes Diddicoy, Mars who have either proven themselves on the competion scene,and/or have an amazing personality.

We carefully select temperament and trainability as standard, and colour as the finishing touch. Spotted Sports horses is our newest venture.


We breed in the purple and hope our future clients will keep us informed of their horses future as we believe in what we sell and would like to follow all our horses careers, whatever that may be.


We are a professionally run, family business based in the heart of Cheshire, where the horses come first and live in a naturally based environment as much as possible; that includes all of our 5 stallions. Faust af Elmelygard,Tresaison Snow Wolf,Dunguaire Fionn McCool, Reifals Calon Lan and Broomells Surf Prince.
