Patrick has trained flat and National Hunt winners at Inhurst Farm Stables since the early 1990s.
With stabling, paddocks, private gallops & schooling grounds on the family's converted dairy farm, Patrick and his wife Phillippa run a successful and happy yard, where the emphasis is on ensuring that the owners have fun; win, lose or draw!
A FAMILY BUSINESS
Patrick and Phillippa are hands-on trainers, managing all aspects of the yard and horses' welfare. They have built up the yard from just a few boxes with one pointer into a superb training base, ensuring your horse's every need is catered for.
Both Patrick and Phillippa are experienced horsemen; Patrick worked at various studs and yards near Kingsclere and Newmarket before spending 3 years at Gainesway Farm in America.
A further three years assisting Dick Hern was followed by 3 years as assistant trainer to Ian Balding. Patrick has learnt from the best and been involved with such equine greats as Blushing Groom, Green Dancer, Nashwan and Selkirk.
Phillippa is a medal-winning international 3 day event rider and a successful point to point jockey; she now oversees the day to day running of the yard and keeps everyone on their toes.
