Presentation of Kvakstad Gaard:

Kvakstad Gaard is a Stud Farm situated 55 km southeast of Norway’s capital, Oslo, and within 30 km of the swedish border. Tone Wirkola, owner/manager, shares ownership with Lars Ruud. We have been in the breeding business since 1979, since 2009 we have consentraded on frozen or fresh imported semen mainly from Sweden, France, USA and Canada.

In addition to managing the farm and the breeding operations, Tone also handles the creation of text and pictures for the advertisements and marketing that utilize this website and horsemen periodicals. Tones credentials includes an education as a trainer and a norwegian championchip for woman drivers.

Kvakstad Gaard serves approximately 20 % of the market for breeding of warmblood-trotters in Norway, and has done so the last years. Tone Wirkola and the farm was the "Breeding champion" in Norway 2008 and 2009.

The breeding season 2018 we are agents for 29 stallions.
