About Paul ...

Having always had a keen interest in horses and originally in eventing, Paul started working for international event rider Nick Gauntlett at the age of 17. Paul spent 4 years based with Nick progressing up to 3* level, before he then spent 2 years based with Pammy Hutton at Talland school of equitation under the in-house event rider position.


At 23 Paul set up his first yard and continued to be based in and around the Cotswolds for 8 years, here he produced many event horses from 4yo - advanced and established a large coaching clientele, ranging from young riders to international level.


In 2018 Paul decided to make the move from the world of international eventing to pure show jumping. In the last 4 years Paul has gone on to achieve great things in the world of show jumping. 

In this time, he has been fortunate enough to produce some top-level young horses in both national and international classes, jump the Prestigious Hickstead Grand Prix, had his first international win at Bonheiden CSI** and jumped in his first international Grand Prix's at Peelbergen.

Now focussing on the production of world class show jumpers Paul started his own breeding program, with his first home bred, Jonnetja Gold (Jonagold x Zeizo) born in spring 2020. Spring 2022 we have had 1 colt and 2 fillies, 1 colt and 1 filly by Jonagold and 1filly The Amazing Faltic HB owned by Oakingham stud and ridden by Ben Maher on the global tour.
