The Stud


The stud lies in the heart of Oxfordshire and covers 345 acres.

We take great pride in how we raise our horses and have a small dedicated team of staff experienced in the care of thoroughbreds. We also rely on the services of Paul Ferguson BVMS MRCVS (Valley Equine Hospital) and Gary Pickford (Chapel Forge Farriers).

The paddocks are of paramount importance and we use the services of Roger Allman and The Farm Clinic, USA for our soil and grass analysis. Baileys Horse Feeds supply our feed and supplements and advise on nutrition based on our surveys.
