The National Stud is open for regular tours from March to October
, so there is plenty of opportunity to re-visit the stud to experience different parts of the breeding year. Most tours include visits to the Foaling Unit and nursery paddocks in the early spring, where you may see newborn foals; the superb Stallion Unit, with the opportunity to see the stallions in their paddocks or going about their daily work, as well as visiting various yards and paddocks where you can watch the mares and foals grazing and enjoying the sunshine.
Foals are very susceptible to cold and wet weather, so in bad weather young foals will not be turned out in the paddocks and it may not always be possible to visit the Foaling Unit if
there are any newborn foals that need quiet and recuperation.
Our stallions are busiest during the breeding season (February—June) so will not always be available to see during every tour and it is not always possible to see inside the covering
shed during the breeding season. Stallions are not turned out during bad weather or during the Sales.
