About Us

Steven and Karen have been running a successful partnership since 2004, when the business was established.


Steven is one of the countries most respected riders, having learnt his trade during a 6 year spell as stable jockey to William Funnell. Steven qualified Cevin Z for three finals at HOYS in 2003 and was 4th in the prestigious Foxhunter final, Cevin Z has now gone on to be one of the Billy Stud leading sires. He was also placed in many international Grands Prix with Mondriaan, who went on to win three Hickstead derbys.


We have enjoyed huge success highlights, including producing multiple Hickstead derby winners, placed every national final at HOYS, representing GB at the World Breeding championships and several horses selected onto the Equine Pathway. 


We now breed and produce top class showjumping horses for sponsors / owners, from our purpose built facilities at Wicklands Stud. We always have a selection of horses for sale, our emphasis is on quality not quantity.
