Seren Quarter Horses is owned and run by the Goodliffe Family, established in 1989 with the purchase of a Stallion by the name of Lunar Lucre. Since those humble beginnings they have become one of the leading quarter horse breeders in both South Wales and the United Kingdom.
South Wales enjoys a high concentration of quality quarter horse breeders with many of the season's best foals being produced here and some of the UK's best stallions standing at stud.
Seren Quarter Horses consistently, year on year, has produced fantastic young stock with the focus firmly on quality and affordability with a progressive breed program featuring both UK horses and imported stock.
At the heart of the operation is John Goodliffe. In the picturesque Vale Of Glamorgan, John's farm is some 120 acres rearing both horses and sheep.
John is passionate about the horses that he breeds at the farm and sees the stock that is bred here as a part of an extended family. Testimony to this is the ongoing correspondences from people who have bought horses over the years, many of whom compete with their quarter horses and are always eager to let John know how his boys and girls are doing.
Spring 2015 Over the last two years we have had a change in direction here on the farm and have spent a lot more time on training horses, it has been a truly inspiration time well spent.
Having the opportunity to work with all sorts of different horses, bringing older horses back into work, horses with all sorts of issues, lazy under used horses, driven over active horses and young stock.
To bring out the best in these horses, to find value in them and to be able improve their mind set is rare privilege.
We are still looking to continue breeding quarter horses in the future, disappointingly this year we have only produced one foal although he is a real cracker as good as anything we have produced in the past.
