Etheridge Farm & Stud

About Us

 

 

Ann Bassett has had a lifetime involvement in farming and horses, particularly breeding, showing and hunting.

 

Ann is a BYEH judge and a qualified AI Technician.   She is on the SHB (GB) committee for stallions, broodmares and showing as well as being on the broodmare grading panel.

 

She was also MFH for 10 seasons.

 

Ann stood her first stallion in 1983 and has stood stallions continuously ever since.  Her stallions were primarily Thoroughbred but also stood Warmblood and Irish Draughts.

 

Thoroughbred stallions that Ann has stood over the years were Turn Back In Time, Senang Hati, Cornishman, Another Hoarwithy, Queen’s Soldier, Southern Music, and Roviris.  Non Thoroughbred stallions included Louella Gandolpho (Han), Gold Bond (ID), Silvamon (ID), Sandy’s Light (ID) and Earl Cottage (KWPN).

 

Today, she stands the Thoroughbred stallions Wessex Starrring Role and Aveia along with the Holstein stallion Trenawin Lydian, KWPN stallion Natal and the homozygous coloured stallion Sempers Spirit.

 

During this time she have covered thousands of mares, foaled down and inseminated hundreds too.

 

Ann has had the greatest pleasure of producing, qualifying and showing her own homebred hunter at HOYS and RIHS and being in the ribbons.

 

She also produced and showed her own stallion Roviris to take the King George II Cup at Newmarket for the Champion HIS stallion.

 

We have taken County Championships at every County Show from Great Yorkshire to Royal Cornwall to Kent for our clients mainly with horses bred at Etheridge Farm.  We have also been lucky enough to qualify horses for the Cuddy Finals at HOYS and to win the Horse section and been second twice in the last 6 years.

 

Ann had the huge excitement of taking a client’s Irish Draught broodmare back to Ireland to the Royal Dublin Horse Show and taking the Irish Draught Championship!

 

Tony Wareham has had a lifetime in livestock transport as well as in-hand showing and standing stallions principally the Irish Draught Rathdowney Fern.
