Where it all began!

Judith’s grandfather and father, heavily involved with horses, purchased a young mare from the late Brain McNabb over fifty years ago. Radient Princess was sired by Suzi Desu. This mare was retained for breeding purposes and produced eleven foals. Radient Princess was the foundation mare of the current Loughview stock.
