In the 1990’s, Mr Zegwaard imported a number of the best miniature horses in the world to the Netherlands. He then started the stud which has grown to be one of the largest studs in Europe for the professional breeding of miniature horses. There are currently 180 miniature horses at Stal Zegwaard, including the Falabella, American Miniature Horse (AMHA) and NMPRS breeds. Stal Zegwaard has had a number of memorable successes. The yard had, for example, the smallest miniature horse in the world, called Mercador. Mercador is thus in the Guiness Book of Records.
Stal Zegwaard has an extensive stud. We have a large number of approved stallions at our disposal. Each year a number of foals are born that, following an extensive selection, satisfy all the quality requirements. These foals are sold or loaned out throughout the world. We are of course at your disposal should you wish for any advice when selecting the perfect stallion for your mare.
As well as the stud, it is also possible to loan an approved miniature stallion from Stal Zegwaard. If you are interested in this, please feel free to contact us.
Stal Zegwaard’s miniature horses are always the crème de la crème at shows. The inspections are not just limited to The Netherlands, our miniature horses also perform well at international shows.
