Highdown Stud

The Highdown Stud of the Scott Brothers Des, Neville and Robin was founded in 1967 in KwaZulu Natal.

With the dream of creating a high class thoroughbred stud, they conducted a thorough study of the most successful stud farms around the world, collecting all the best and most practical design elements and bringing them back to South Africa.

Within 4 years of the farm’s inception, Scott Bros had cemented their place in the South African breeding ranks by finishing 2nd on the National Breeders’ Log, a position they have occupied 5 times in total as well always ranking in the country’s Top 10 each season.
