In the time the stud has existed a few horses have come and gone. Some were just on lease to Esther, others were sold as a foal or older horse to good homes. Every horse that is part of the Groen Equestrian yard will only go to 5* homes that are carefully vetted. All are bred out of carefully selected performance horses, they have grown up with the best care, feed and 24-7 turn out to become strong and healthy horses.
