Selective Breeding For Success

Stud competition horses Rehabilitation centre in north wales and Cheshire

Tyddyn Cochyn stud was formed in 2008, based on the original ‘war horse’ the Trakehner, a majestic, strong and noble horse. I fell in love with the temperament and intelligence of the Trakehner during a visit to the Singing Stud. Which has lead to all the mares being either pure Takehners or have Trakehner blood.

Our aim is to breed sport horses of the highest quality for competition without negotiating on temperament, ability or trainability.

Producing world class sports horses

We carefully choose successful stallions that have good rideability, conformation and longevity ensuring our foals are even tempered with correct conformation. All foals are handled and are kept in small herds to ensure correct mental and physical development. Our horses are allowed to mature slowly, allowing for correct skeletal and muscular development.

Providing the best start to life.

The stud is situated in the beautiful Clwydian range in Wales, where our horses are allowed to mature slowly on the rolling hills, allowing for correct skeletal and muscular development.

The stud was founded in 2008 by Ruth Skillen, we have successfully bred horses that are out competing and performing well.

We focus on Temperament, confirmation, longevity and ability

Alongside proven sires we also use our own licenced AES Trakehner stallion - Singing Highlander.

Top Competition Horses

I fell in love with horses at an early age which lead to a career working with Olympic Show Jumper Carl Edwards and his father Charlie Edwards, who has bred horses to Olympic level.

My time with Carl allowed me to develop my skills in caring for top level competition horses at home and abroad.

After a number of years with Carl, My quest for knowledge lead me to do a degree in Equine and Human Sport Science at Aberystwyth University.

During my degree I took a particular interest in physiology, anatomy and biomechanics.
