Situated a mere 45minutes from Cape Town, lies Winterbach Stud. Started in 2011 by Hendrik Winterbach Snr. Close to Paarl, Franschoek, Somerset West and Stellenbosch. Nestled between all the world renowned wine farms. Winterbach Stud is a boarding farm specialising in Mare & foal care as well as excellent yearling preparation for sales.
Winterbach Stud is run by Hendrik Winterbach and his very capable son, Hendrik Winterbach Jnr. Between them they have over 25 years of experience of stud management, including foaling and sales prep.
Hendrik Winterbach Snr was the recipient of The Equus Award: Broodmare of the Year in 2006 and the Winner of the Exceptional International Achievement Award for Irridescense and Perfect Promise in 2006.
With their passion for horses this stud farm is slowly becoming a well-known name in the Thoroughbred industry. Winterbach Stud achieved well above average prices for their yearlings at the 2015 CTICC Cape Premier Sale book 1. Selling two horses for R2million and R2.7 Million respectively.
Stud farms like, Backworth stud, Rathmor and Waterford stud send some of their mares annually for the breeding season as we are close to all the big Stallions like Silvano, Dynasty, Judpot and Var to name but a few.
With our professional service the horse comes first and only the best will do. Weanlings are worked with daily and fed individually, making for a better balanced horse. Great care is taken in our feeding, supplementation and personal handling, over and above the regular grooming for our yearlings. The mares are placed in large paddocks with grazing were they can just be horses for a change. With two large foaling boxes and enough stables our mares get personal/individual care during the foaling season.
