About Castell Sports Horses

Castell Sporthorses is an up-and-coming family owned and run stud, based in the heart of Mid Wales. Set up in 2006 by Mark Evans and Amanda Forster, a couple with combined experience in show-jumping, eventing and breeding, the Stud is founded on a lifelong ambition to breed and produce top quality horses destined for success in show-jumping.

The ethos has been plain and simple from day one – to hand-pick premium quality foundation mares, add the finest bloodlines from across Europe, from KWPN, French, Belgian and Holstein studbooks and provide the young-stock with the best and most natural start in life. All our horses enjoy the natural environment here in Wales – they benefit from the best grass in Britain and the socialisation of the herd until they reach three and a half years old.

We currently have 120 young horses (from foals to four year olds) – some will be potential champions for the professional show-jumper, others quality competition horses for aspiring amateur show-jumpers or eventers.

Our team of riders also produces a number of horses for show-jumping each year, with horses qualified for the finals of the British Young Horse Show-jumping Championships in four, five and six year old classes.

STOP PRESS: Our stallion Zanzibar V (Oklund), purchased by us as a two year old in Holland, has qualified for this years HOYS Six Year Old Final.
