Langaller Farm is situated on the edge of The Dartmoor National Park in a fertile valley basin. Comprising nearly 300 acres of prime grassland the farm has been home to the Upham family for over 50 years. Until 1999 it was primarily a dairy unit with a top class pedigree herd of Friesian cattle.
However, the face of British Farming was changing and we started to look at diversification. Having sent mares away to stud for many years and with lots of experience breeding and rearing young horses - the stud seemed a natural progression......and so it was born
From the outset we adopted a policy to stand only top class stallions and have been very priviliged to have some of Britains 'truly greats' in terms of sport horse breeding. Without exception they have all proven themselves within their chosen discipline, with the older ones now having offspring competing at the highest level.
In order to offer breeders the widest choice of stallions we stand a full compliment including a Riding Pony, a Connemara, a Homozygous coloured Event/Show horse, an Advanced Eventer, an Anglo Arab, an Irish Draught stallion, two Thoroughbreds and a Sports Horse.
We also run a herd of our own broodmares where we have some of the very best of bloodlines for the competitive market including Kuwait Beach, Catherston Dazzler, Shaab, Mill Law, Gildoran, Daws Firebird, I'm A Star etc etc. Every day is an open day so do come in and wander round and see for yourself.
Reasonable stud fees, excellent grass keep and attention to detail are all part of the service at
Langaller. Mares are welcome back to foal down too,we can take care of those sleepless nights!
Thank you so much for foaling our mares for us. Your care and professionalism is very much appreciated, can we book them in again for next year please.
