SPECIALISING IN THE BREEDING AND PRODUCTION OF PERFORMANCE HORSES, PONIES AND WELSH As AND Ds

A Family Affair

Skelwith Stud is a family owned and run business specialising in the production of competition horses and ponies Welsh A’S and D’s. After breeding at home for many years the stud was officially set up in 1981.

The inspiration for the stud name was taken from the beautiful Skelwith Bridge area of the Lake District from which the family originates. The stud retains the name but now resides 10 miles west of Welshpool in Powys. 

The stud is unique in that the owner Liz Launder not only knows about owning and breeding horses but is also a qualified equine and human osteopath. She is renowned nationally and internationally as a poor performance and sports injury specialist and is the consultant osteopath at Osteopathy 4 Horse and Rider

Horses are in the blood of the Launder family with Liz’s parents and grandparents before her owning and breeding horses. The ethos of animal welfare is engrained in everything she does. 

We welcome visitors to Skelwith Stud but ask that you phone ahead first to ensure we are available to help you.
