About Ballyheerin Stud Farm

Ballyheerin Stud Farm was founded by John D Carr in 2002. Recognising the demand for top quality sport horses for dressage, eventing and showjumping, Ballyheerin Stud Farm undertook to create an environment where outstanding stallions could breed with exceptional broodmares producing optimal offspring.

Set in the stunning hinterlands of Ballyheerin, Co. Donegal our horses are reared in the most natural surroundings, grazed on rolling paddocks allowing them to develop and flourish under our watchful eyes. We have created an ideal environment for our horses including extensive stables, loose sheds, isolation stables, a horse walker and sand arena.

Our passion for breeding sport horses shines through every aspect of Ballyheerin Stud Farm and is reflected in the success our sport horses have enjoyed both at home and abroad.
