Welcome to Ruach Pinto Sport Horses!!

Ruach Sport horse stud was officially formed in August 2012 . We are situated in the beautiful Suikerbos Rand area just outside of Heidelberg, Gauteng, in South Africa.

Owning and working with horses has been a passion and dream we have had for many years, culminating in our decision to breed these beautiful animals that we enjoy so much. We aim to breed a versatile Sport Horse that can perform well in any arena as well as be a good family friend and general hack. We use mainly Warmblood Stallions and cross them with our Sport Horse mares, which are of different breeding, to ensure that sport ability, size and hardiness is maintained.

Our mares are carefully picked as we want our foals to grow up hardy and strong in their natural environment. Temperament is a very important trait and we find that foals tend to be very much like their mommies.
We believe that horses should grow up as nature intended for them, in their herds, where the young can be taught by the older horses and grow up mentally sound and healthy. This does not mean that our babies are not used to human contact. We interact with them daily and handle them from birth.
Our paddocks are big and spacious with lots of grazing, allowing them to run and play and burn some energy while at it.
Grooming is also a part of our daily routine, even for those horses who sleep out in their paddocks.
All our horses are handled on a daily basis, and schooled for the individual purposes they were bred for or show natural talent and ability for.

The stud is located on a farm, allowing us to use our horses daily for practical farm work like patrolling fences, checking up on the herds, making sure that all animals are healthy and cared for. We enjoy game drives on horse back and frequently hack out just for fun!
Our horses are not just a hobby, but completes who we are.

We recently started breeding Friesian Sport Horses as well, as the Friesian warmblood crosses have become very popular especially with the dressage riders.
We have acquired a number of Friesian mares and two Friesian stallions to use in our program. We have also decided to ad a bit of Gypsy Vanner blood into the mix to retain some more feathering to the crosses. We will be using Clononeen Silken Promise for this purpose.

We also still breed Quarter horses and American Paint horses. These horses are mostly used for western riding pleasures as well as general working horses. Please see EJ Quarter horses and Paints for more information.
