About Us

A little about what we do

After 37 years of training at Rhonehurst where I have sent out over 1300 winners including 6 Cheltenham Festival winners. Rhonehurst sent out two Grand National winners, the first being the legendary Battleship in 1938, trained by Reg Hobbs and of course Many Clouds in 2015. We moved to Neardown Stables in 2021.

Neardown Stables is a new purpose built yard, built in 2012 which has all the modern facilities required for training. 

In addition, the Lambourn Gallops now promise to rank amongst the finest in the country having recently been taken over by the Jockey Club. The yard itself is relaxed and informal and we welcome owners and visitors alike

I believe that happy staff equal happy horses and this, combined with a totally professional, committed approach and attention to detail will help me to achieve my aim of returning to the top ten National Hunt trainers in the country.
