BELMONT HOUSE STUD
"Breeding and Producing Future Champions"
Purchased by the Etter family in 1987, Belmont House Stud in County Offaly, Ireland, is the breeding establishment of the Etter Spotpferde AG. Since 1992 Andrea Etter, the eldest daughter of Gerhard and Hedi Etter, has managed and developed the stud to become one of the most respected in Ireland. Andrea has successfully bred and produced many top-quality and high achieving sport horses and continually strives to breed and produce future champions.
We operate a performance-oriented breeding program for both showjumping and eventing. Our emphasis is on breeding healthy horses with good temperament. Our youngstock are raised in mixed herds in a very natural setting, benefiting from the optimal conditions in Ireland. The young horses are kept in large groups year-round which ideally supports their social and physical development. High-performance mares are mated with carefully selected stallions that carry top-class bloodlines. We currently have four proven sires standing at stud: Livello, homebred Mr Quincy B, Stetter and Qui Vive des Songes Z. An additional selection of high performance stallions is available by frozen semen. We breed horses for international professional sport and amateur horses with the world-renowned reliability of the Irish horse. All horses bred and or produced in Belmont carry a B behind their name.
