A stud isnít only about the stallions, as the mares also play a major role in producing top quality youngstock. Pohlands Stud initially used thoroughbreds as foundation mares, but our mare base now includes home bred South African Warmbloods, imported Dutch mares, Namibian warmbloods and still a couple of thoroughbreds. To date eight of our mares have produced two or more open showjumpers.


Three mares in particular stand out:
