ML Haflinger Stud is a combination of Mosscarr Stud in Staffordshire and Langton Lodge Stud in Leicestershire.

Mosscarr Stud is the oldest Haflinger Stud in the UK breeding these wonderful Austrian horses for the last 40 years. Joanne Critchlow has a wealth of knowledge and expertise with regard to all stud work as well as training both horse and rider.

Langton Lodge Stud has been involved with Haflingers, either breeding, driving or riding, for over 20 years.

We have two stallions; Stylo Van De Edelweiss (Liz489NL GB62) and Wolontair (Liz498 GB63) standing at stud at present.

The two studs have breed two stallions and taken more home bred youngsters to the youngstock Champion or Reserve Youngstock Champion. Langton Lodge breeding a stallion then taking a homebred filly by that stallion to Youngstock Champion.  Mosscarr have achieved incredible ridden results with their previous stallions taking the Young Rider Championship and the Junior Rider Championship on numerous occasions with a number of great young riders.  Stylo is the Youngest Stallion at 8 years old to take two riders to the Young Rider Championship and the Junior Rider Championship in consecutive years. Wolontair and his present rider winning Young Rider Champion.

Stylo and Wolontair’s progeny have achieved some great results both in hand and activity classes.  Young Stock Champion Le Trec, Young Stock Champion in hand, in hand class winners, Young Stock Team Challenge, Young Stock Clifton Activity Challenge.  These results prove that we are careful with our breeding programme making sure Temperament is up there with Movement and Performance.

The two youngsters have both completed the mandatory Performance Test required of all stallions registered with Austria after 2009, Stylo in 2014 and Wolontair being placed 1st in 2015 by a large margin. They are now both entered into the highest breeding register, this makes their progeny elligible for inclusion in the breeding stud book.

We are dedicated to producing pure bred Haflingers from good blood lines using a majority of Elite mares therefore improving the breeding programme in the UK.

We offer AI as well as live covering. The welfare of all visiting mares is a top priority and to this end they are only covered under supervision and always with the stallion in hand. We offer both stabling for the mares or grass keep.
