Louella Stud

Since the founding of Louella Stud by the late Louis Massarella in 1934, we always strived to produce versatile
stock that will find success in every discipline. This continues to the present day.
In 2008 we were thrilled to receive a Life Time achievement award for our outstanding contribution to British Breeding
from the British Breeding Breeders Awards.

Dark De Niro, by De Niro out of the thoroughbred mare Royal Fontaine.
With 130 acres of prime, well managed pasture, including 57 indoor stables, 2 indoor schools, an outdoor school, a horse
walker and 2 wash boxes we are in an excellent position to offer a number of services to our clients.


These include: foal and yearling sales preparation, weaning and handling of youngsters, rest and recuperation, breaking in, long term and permanent boarding, and foaling.


We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy browsing through it. You are welcome to come and visit us
at the stud near Coalville, Leicestershire, but please contact us in advance to make an appointment.

We are no longer standing any stallions at stud but we do have frozen semen availabe from Primitive Star, Primitive Proposal and Dark De Niro.
Primitive Star, who was specifically bred for the job, and the young event sire Primitive Proposal are both worthy successors to
continue the prolific line of the great Primitive Rising. Both stallions have successfully combined their stud duties with
competition work.
Primitive Proposal has already made a name for himself as a leading sire of show horses winning the produce class at the
National Hunter Show in 2006 and 2009 and reserve in 2007 and Primitive Star, who was Sport Horse Champion,
2007 already has young horses making a mark on the eventing circuit, whilst he is excelling at dressage.
 Dark De Niro continues to impress us. he is homebred by Louella by the great dressage stallion De Niro and out of our fabulous mare Royal Fontaine.  He has been lightly competed in 2014 with 2 wins at BE90 level. His first crop of foals have been fantastic.

Denounce will be standing at stud, the location will be announced shortly.
  Denounce, one of the best looking horses you could wish to see. We have no doubt that, with his pedigree and ability, his stock will be a success on the track and in the competition world.  Denounce has only had a few runners on the track so far but he has already bred winners in the smart Danzeno, Pendo and Destiny Of A Diva. He has also bred the top class show horses Make My Day and Primitive Desire. 
Denounce was personally recommended to us by his trainer Henry Cecil, whom had considered him to be a definite Group
winning prospect until he met with an unfortunate and serious injury. Denounce is an attractive proposition for breeders to
tap into some of the top bloodlines in Europe.
