Red Hills Stud

Redhills Stud is owned and run by Karl & Jenny Heffernan with the help of our fantastic team.  The yard is set in 80 acres are the foot of the picturesque Redhills 1.5 kms from Kildare town and 2 km from the M7 motorway.  We are lucky to be located in the beating heart of equestrianism in Co.Kildare; easily accessible to major show and event venues plus being surrounded by the very best of veterinary practices in the country. 

At Redhills Stud the horse is our most important customer.  Our yard design and management is focused on optimising our horses’ well-being, both physical and mental, at all times. Once our horses are happy we have happy owners too!
