Embryo Transfer Prices

To be used in conjunction with an AI package

West Ridge Equine is quickly becoming renowned as one of the best stud veterinary services in the South West
for successful breeding. We are pleased to now also offer an embryo transfer service.


Embryo transfer is useful when you have a highly talented horse that you would like to breed from, but is still
competing so cannot take a year out to have a foal. It is also useful if you wish to sell a horse, but want to keep
its bloodlines. Equally if you have a talented mare or good bloodlines, but for whatever reason she is unable to
carry a foal, embryo transfer offers a safe, and successful way of reproducing with that mare.


Our embryo transfer service is offered on a case by case basis, please contact our stud vet Hannah Dennis
directly on 07834 173219 or 01363 83030 to discuss further. A rough guide of our prices are listed below.
