The Stud caters for all equine requirements and is run very much as a team with Helen’s husband Ken, sons Owyn and Dean and very good staff.
The yard also has a strong group of friends and livery owners, who come in to enjoy the fun environment and lend a helping hand, adding to the banter and team atmosphere.The stables have built up an excellent reputation and has become extremely successful, not only offering Stud services, but also accommodating individually tailored services to suit both horses, ponies and owners.The result of this ongoing success gave rise to such a need for expansion of Warmwell Stud, that in 1999 it moved to a brand new purpose built, larger, modern complex, providing the very latest facilities.
The stud has continued to grow and develop since that time and remains today a thriving and successful racing yard and stud farm with Champion horses and ponies in it midst.We look forward to welcoming you to the yard and to some of the most beautiful West Dorset World Heritage Coastline countryside, which we call home
Warmwell Stables are set in the beautiful West Dorset Countryside, just outside Dorchester. Mrs Helen Nelmes, has taken over the yard, having been a partner for over 18 years, working in conjunction with Mrs H.J.C Ross-Skinner who established the stud over 50 years ago as a Welsh Pony Stud. Helen has built up its reputation to also include the breeding of quality competition horses whilst still having Welsh ponies at the yard. Helen is very passionate about her horses and always has their interests at the forefront of her mind; To quote Helen “they’re not just ornaments, they’re horses as well”.
Helen’s main priority has always been and will always remain the horses. However, she is always there to give help, support and advice to owners, staff and friends, providing a listening ear and most importantly of all share a cup of tea or coffee with you!
