about us

Skyroo Stud is situated between Bonnievale and McGregor in the Western Cape of South Africa.

In the year 2000 it was instinct that brought us to this place of hills and valleys within the Klein Karoo between the mountains of Riversondende and the Langeberg. It was in the beauty of the Karoo and the vastness of the night sky where Skyroo was born. Only a 2.5 hour drive from the city centre Skyroo Stud – within the Cape Winelands – originated as a family getaway. This region is well known for its picturesque setting and world class wines giving our visitors the option to enjoy the many offerings of the surrounding area. 

What was a dream became a reality when father and son started Skyroo Arabians. In 2014 Arabians were introduced to Skyroo Stud, where we breed these beautiful horses giving us a Life to Love. Not every horse has a natural instinct of leadership but when given the confidence of being, every horse will give you more than 100% commitment in support and guidance to allow you to live a better life.

The breeding standard at Skyroo Arabians includes a variety of qualities. Conformation; charisma; and care forms part of the initial guidelines of acceptance.

This ensures:

  • correctness/balance
  • attraction
  • good health

Understanding the Phenotype as well as the Genotype of the Arabian horse is essential when it comes to breeding. The combination of these two elements results in a specific ‘type’, and that’s when magic is made.

Over the years we at Skyroo Arabians have made a great effort to increase our knowledge regarding the different traits and blood strains the breed entails.

Extreme TYPE is the ultimate goal when it comes to breeding for the next generation at Skyroo Arabians.
