Cleveland Bay Stallion for Japan

The Cleveland Bay Stallion Carolina Boaz (2699) has been sold to The Imperial Stud of Japan.


The 6 yr old stallion, who holds QA breed status, is now awaiting shipment to his new home.  Bred by Mary Hardman of Stiperstones, Shropshire and sold by Helen January of Mold, Clwyd, Wales, this young stallion joins a long list of Cleveland Bay stallions sold to The Imperial Stud over many years.  Boaz replaced the North Yorkshire born Botton Grove Brigand, who sadly passed away recently.


Boaz was selected from the 5 UK stallions put forward, all being active, athletic individuals with substance, bone and great potential.  Cleveland Bay Horse Society representatives Barbara Martindale, Norma Wilson and Andrew Woods worked with the Imperial Stud agent to obtain their ideal horse.


The Emperor of Japan has a history of buying Cleveland Bay stallions for his Imperial Stud for the breeding of ceremonial and carriage horses.


The Cleveland Bay is England's oldest breed of horse, originating in North Yorkshire, and is today an ideal sire for horses of many disciplines.  Despite being such a rare breed (Catagory 1 on the RBST's list) the Cleveland Bay has a history of being exported to many countries for breeding, including Europe, Australasia, USA, Pakistan and Japan and is very well thought of in these countries.
