The main direction of work of the stud farm is breeding, raising, training and sale of sports horses of the Budyonny breed.

In 2012 the stud farm named after The First Horse Army passed into ownership of RZ-AGRO holding. After a difficult period of 90-ies the stud farm was not in the best condition. The premises of the stables required repair, there was not enough quality feed, equipment… but the managers of the holding took full responsibility for the stud farm and the unique Budyonny breed. Thanks to them, the best breeding stock of Budyonny horses was preserved, the arena was restored, the stables were repaired, the issue of quality feed was resolved, experienced coaches, young promising sportsmen, specialists in horse breeding were invited.
Currently, the horses of the stud farm undergo initial sports training, are tested in races. Well-coordinated work of the staff of racing and sports departments provides raising of qualitatively prepared horses which are ready to any further sports career.
