“Wayne Kieswetter and his family had expressed interest in purchasing Highlands Stud for over two years now, and ultimately it would not have been sold had they not been such enthusiastic stewards of their farm, Ridgemont Stud,” Antony Beck said.

“I know they will look after Highlands in the same way for many decades, and I wish them all the best.”

“We are privileged that Antony and Angela Beck have agreed to sell Highlands Stud to us,” the Kieswetter family said in a statement. “Highlands is steeped in heritage and tradition, and we will endeavour to carry on the Beck legacy.”
