Since 1987 the family of Gerhard and Hedi Etter owned and operated Belmont House Stud, a farm situated in the centre of Ireland. Belmont House Stud is the birthplace of many performance bred youngsters of the Etter Sportpferde AG. Since 1992, Andrea Etter has managed and developed Etter Sports Horses Ireland Ltd. which works closely with the Swiss Branch. Etter Sportpferde AG supplies broodmares and stallions to Ireland, and in return, Etter Sports Horses Ireland Ltd. sends their Irish progeny, ready for competition to Switzerland.
Etter Sport Horses Ireland Ltd. operates a performance-oriented breeding program. We believe in crossing mares with a performance record up to International level, with performance Stallions who carry top class bloodlines. We breed horses for the International sport and for the amateur with the known reliability of the Irish Horse. All Horses bred and or produced in Belmont carry a “B” behind their Name.
