Bush Hill Stud is owned and run by Warwick and Karin Render and is a stud that has been a successful commercial operation for over fourty years, with the Render's having taken it over in 1998. Between them Warwick and Karin have in excess of fifty years of experience in the horse breeding industry in South Africa.
Bush Hill is very conveniently situated in the heart of the KZN Midlands breeding area thereby offering easy access to all stallions standing in KwaZulu Natal.
The stud offers a full range of services for the discerning owner including the boarding of mares (permanent and seasonal), weanlings, yearlings and sales preparation.
The stud borders on the Little Mooi River which provides water for the irrigation of winter pastures, allowing for quality grazing year round. The natural beauty of the property is enhanced by the presence of many large old trees which also provide safe and effective natural shelter for the horses in all seasons.
The main stable complex on the stud offers forty five stables meaning that all individual horses needs can be catered for, be it those fillies coming out of training to stud for the first time or the young horse preparing for the sales or to start his/her racing career.
Adjoining the stud office on the stable yard is the maternity unit with a specialist foal high care facility, making for easy management and monitoring of all new born and/or problem foals.
We have bred the likes of Zirconeum
, Wolf Whistle
and The Mouseketeer
amongst many others.
Bush Hill Stud is the former home of Champion sire Kahal and Toreador, and we currently stand the following stallions:
Curved Ball, Flying The Flag, King's Chapel, Irish Flame and Redoute's Promise.
