Richard started eventing at the age of 18 from his base in South Luffenham, and quickly built up both a successful career and business, together with his wife, international dressage rider, Victoria Jones.
Richard has been a prolific and successful competitor and is renowned for his love of producing and training young horses, and taking them through the levels.
The long format side of the sport such as Burghley and Badminton is his particular interest, and as such he favours a more thoroughbred type of horse. So much so that last year he bought the Thoroughbred stallion Tajraasi, father of his two current top horses.
Any spare time is always spent with his two children, Freddie and Florence, and his lurchers.
12 year old gelding by Thoroughbred stallion Tajraasi. Bought as a 3 year old from Ireland, bred by James Hickey. An exceptional galloper and jumper with superb trainability. A real tough cookie who loves his job.
10 year old gelding also by Tajraasi, and again bought as a young horse in Ireland. A charming character who is following hotly in his half-brother’s heels.
