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.
Welcome to our website for Langaller Farm. The Upham family have farmed and loved Langaller since it was purchased in 1951 by my grandfather Wiliiam Upham. It was then taken on by his son, my father, Hedley who increased and improved the herd of milking cows to 140 pure-bred Holstein Fresian in the 70’s and 80’s. In turn my brother Stewart and I took over the reins. Horses were an interest for Dad who rode hunting regularly and always had a mare or 2 to breed from but they became my full time passion and in 1998 the first stallions arrived. All Fair, a Thoroughbred HIS stallion and Hazaaf, a winner on the flat. Through my naivety I rode them both and hunted them and this quickly gained them a good number of local mares, and from further afield too. In 2000 it was decided to sell the cows and go full time into the breeding and producing business. Not an easy decision and I miss my cows still.
More stallions arrived, and over the last 2 decades Langaller Farm has stood some of the best stallions over a number of disciplines and breeds. Currently there are 10 in residence in the stallion yard including coloureds, TB’s, Sports Horses, Irish Draughts, Connemara and Riding Pony/Working Hunter ponies. As well as the breeding interest, showing is another passion that has been handed down through the generations. We produce and number of in hand youngsters and broodmares for the show ring. We have enjoyed reasonable success at County level and now the summer activities include travelling to many of the shows up and down the country.
A number of homebred young horses and foals are offered for sale each year and we get immense pleasure from following horses carrying the Langaller/Trenavey prefix.
I hope that you enjoy browsing through this site whether you are looking for a suitable stallion for your own mare or you are looking to purchase a new horse, or indeed if you would like to have your young horse produced and shown for you.
