Arkle was Brooms first foal, and Leonardo’s first ever foal.
Leonardo was chosen as the stallion as he is not related to the rest of the Cotebrook Shire horses.
He offers masses of coronet hair which will hopefully add to and enhance our existing excellent bloodline.

We are delighted with the result so far and hope that Broom’s son will go on to be a major stallion for the Cotebrook Stud.

Arkle is a magnificent mountain in the NW Highlands of Scotland with a curving ridge of glistening white quartzite.
There is also a famous racehorse named after this mountain who won the Cheltenham Gold Cup 3 times.

Arkles first show was Nantwich & South Cheshire Show in July 2018 where he won the prestigious award of Champion Foal.

He most recently was crowned Junior Champion at Newport Show.
