Gestüt Etzean

Rearing the natural way

Gestüt Etzean was founded in 1970. Starting with just three mares, it has developed into a leading sales and boarding stud, where many group and classic winners were reared. Etzean now has a broodmare band of about 30 mares. The stud was founded by Heinz Weil, whose philosophy is to rear his animals as naturally as possible. “Respect and maintain nature´s laws and cycles” is his motto. This is also made clear in his breeding principles. His youngsters are kept throughout the whole year in open stabling. The paddocks are fertilised with animal compost, algae, dung and crushed rock. His ideas are based on the Parelli Natural Horsemanship Method. The resident stallions are champion two-year-old Dashing Blade, multiple Group One sire and sire of Group One broodmares, his best son Lord of England (Group One winner), whose first crop are 2009 yearlings, and champion two-year-old Sholokhov, leading first season sire. World champion Manduro was also reared at Gestüt Etzean.
