Welcome . . . .
Tullow Stud was a small breeding enterprise set on 50 acres of fertile
pasture,on the outskirts of the historic township of Kilmore.
Recognised as Victoria’s first inland town Kilmore was settled in the
1800’s by mainly Irish immigrants, now as then horses play a major
role in this area, situated just one hour North of Melbourne and
45mins. from Tullamarine airport.
While Tullow Stud was Sold late 2015, Sue & Chris will continue their
involvement in the Equestrian Industry and Events.
Our aim at Tullow Stud was to produce
sound, trainable stock with the potential to perform.
Using Irish Draught and Irish Sport Horse mares we choose a suitable stallion for each individual mare. Our broodmares are either successful competitors themselves or bred on recognised performance lines. The choice of stallion is determined by type and temperament, conformation and proven bloodlines.
Our programme was based mainly on the traditional mix of Irish Draught and Thoroughbred to produce the ever popular Irish Sport Horse (formerly known as The Irish Hunter.)
This part bred has achieved world wide recognition over the decades, consistently producing eventing winners at the great 4 star competitions such as Badminton, Burghley and Kentucky.
Irish Draughts and Irish Sport Horses are also hugely successful in the show ring, regularly securing major Championships at shows throughout England and Ireland in hunter and cob classes.
We continue to have a keen interest in Working Hunter classes
and judge regularly at Horse Shows.
We look forward to meeting you at future events . . Sue & Chris Tufnell
