Welcome To Mickley Stud

Located in picturesque North Shropshire, Mickley Stud was established in 2005 by Richard Kent and his partner Clare Lloyd. Prior to that, Richard had been a partner in the Helshaw Grange Stud, and for more than twenty-five years has stood some very successful and popular stallions such as Overbury (leading sire of hurdlers and chasers), Karinga Bay (champion sire of chasers), Captain Gerrard (Leading First Season Sire), and Multiplex (who still just keeps on getting winners, under both codes!).

Mickley Stud quickly became a popular base for successful Flat and National Hunt breeding. Over the years we have carefully built up a roster of stallions which gives breeders the opportunity to produce commercially-attractive foals , yearlings, and stores. Our stallions offer very good value options for both codes, with excellent prospects for success both at auction and on the racecourse. We have earned a reputation for professionalism and high standards of care, and we are proud of the impressive results achieved by our horses, both at the sales and during their racing career.

The stud itself is set in over 380 acres, offering plenty of capacity to rotate stock regularly and always provide fresh pasture, enhanced by our practice of also rearing beef cattle and sheep, making the soil very fertile.
