TESTIMONIALS

“Cannot recommend this stallion more. He stamps his young stock with his good looks, athleticism and talent.”
Karen Bennett

“Total Belief (April), my lovely big homebred mare by Silvester has been the
star of the season. She is careful but bold jumping and showing great
trainability. She started the season in novice classes and ended up in the top ten at the seven – year-old Championships CIC2* at Osberton, so I am really thrilled with her progress this year. She is very smart and incredibly balanced for her age and size. Very proud of our first homebred and she feels class in all three phases. Bring on next year!”

Coral Keen

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

“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. 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.”
Joan Cadzow – Duncrahill Stud

“To Hazel and all at the WG Stud, we are so pleased with our new purchase
“Silvester’s Flight”. She has such a lovely temperament and has been so well
handled making life so much easier. A perfect companion for our filly foal
“Caroleana”. Once again thank you so much from Clare and all at Corhampton
Stud.”
Clare Houlder

“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 year old 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

“After being so impressed with the foal I purchased from Hazel in 2016 I have since returned to use Silvester for my own mare. Young stock produced by Hazel are impeccable in terms of manners . My foal on arrival was so well behaved and just easy to do everything with. Silvester’s progeny are level headed, kind natured with fantastic conformation and movement , you couldn’t ask for more. I’m feel very privileged to have two exciting young Silvester progeny for the future.” Rachel Atwell
“Over the past nine stud seasons Silvester had demonstrated consistently high fertility with excellent conception rates.” Simon Richards BVSc, OVS, MRCVS
“I’m so, so glad I chose to use Silvester, my boy is my horse of a lifetime!” Ally Stevens
“I was very fortunate to gain the ride on a mare called In Vogue II who is by Silvester. In the time I rode ‘Myrtle’, we went from BE100 together to completing our first Advanced. She was so brave cross country which gave me the confidence to tackle our first Advanced track, and very trainable for dressage, consistently scoring over 70%. Now, having ridden many horses I appreciate how special it is to have a horse that would take you to Advanced BE level. That’s why I had no hesitations when looking for the next superstar to join my team, in purchasing a 3yo mare by Silvester. This mare is already proving bold, forward thinking and clever. She is light on her feet and has the most effortless gallop. She is proving to be a perfect stamp for an event horse. Both horses have excellent temperaments and are a pleasure to have in the yard.” Melissa Joannides
“I chose to use Carthago Chicago because I simply loved him from the second I saw him. He had this “look at me” factor that went alongside his amazing temperament, which for me as a first time breeder was ideal. He ticked all the boxes of things that I was looking for in a stallion that would improve my Irish mare – being height, movement and temperament. I am absolutely delighted with my filly by him, who has just taken everything in her stride. She has the most lovely temperament and is just a delight to deal with. I’m very much looking forward to my future with her.” Catherine Hadfield
“Purchasing Prima from the WG Stud was a great experience. It was lovely to see all the stallions and their great temperaments. Gorgeous foals and youngsters to choose from. Friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. I can’t wait to get going with her.” Judy Fry. (buyer of Chicago Carrera by Carthago Chicago)

“I continue to be impressed by Carthago Chicago’s excellent semen quality and fertility.”
