Our team

Who we are

It takes a certain amount of skill, expertise and hard work to run a successful racing yard. Mark and Sara both have years of experience in training and caring for a variety of horses, always ensuring that each horse receives a tailored programme suited to their needs.

The entire team work together like a well-oiled machine, and each role is just as important as the next. Every horse at Old Manor Stables receives the best possible care from the Bradstock team, and Mark and Sara are careful to ensure they use the best support staff, including leading vets, physios and farriers to treat their growing string of horses.

Mark has an exceptional record as a trainer, buyer and breeder of National Hunt racehorses. Having honed his craft with the great five times champion trainer Fulke Walwyn, Mark has gone on to produce some notable winners at his base in Oxfordshire alongside Sara and his dedicated team.
