Bellwood Stud was established in 1970 and it is owned and managed by the Messenger family and is situated in the heart of the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu Natal, 2.5km from the village of Nottingham Road. The 250 hectare farm comprises arable farming land which supports cattle, horses, cabbages and maize.
From a small stable of mares, Bellwood Stud won the 2002 KZN Breeding Achievement of the Year and produced many winners including Key of Destiny, the Equus Champion 3 year old and KZN Horse of the Year. In 2004 Key of Destiny won the Equus Champion Sprinter of the Year.
Bellwood Stud is well respected for it’s boarding and spelling facilities and provides excellent service.
Our farrier is Andy Timm and our veterinarian is David Mullins.
