OUR STORY

Jeremy and Camilla successfully trained point-to-pointers together for 15 years on their 370 acre dairy farm in Somerset, having their first runner in 1992. Jeremy rode a few “to understand what jockeys were talking about”  and saddled his first hunter chase winner in May 2001 with County Derry winning at Stratford. Many more winners followed until 2007, when he took out his professional license.
His first winner under Rules was a novice hurdle in May with a pointer called Gone To Lunch who promptly also won his next two. A year later he sold the dairy herd and the existing facilities were developed to cope with the extra horses. A 300 metre schooling ring was linked to a three and a half furlong strip that rises up from the bottom of the farm and Jeremy posted 24 victories with 34 individual horses.
Gone To Lunch won five point-to-points, fell in the 2007 Christie's Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham, and then proved so successful over hurdles, winning four, that he was only narrowly beaten in the Sefton Novices' Hurdle at Aintree. He contracted pleural pneumonia and nearly died three years later before scoring an emotional success at Wincanton in the FJ Chalke Handicap Chase on October 23, 2011. He is now happily retired as 'trainer's hack' at Higher Holworthy.
In October 2011, Jeremy took pride of place at the top of the Racing Posts ‘hot list’ and saddled seven winners from eight runners in ten days.
Jeremy scored his first Grade One success with Melodic Rendezvous in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown in 2013.
Sandown was also the scene of his first Flat winner, in 2016, Jeremy took out his flat licence and Unison shortly won two at Sandown that August under Silvestre de Sousa and George Baker. Since then Miss Minuty and Greenview Paradise have both notched up multiple wins on the flat.
Jeremy and Camilla's youngest daughter Laura runs the yard as head girl, after a spinal injury brought her Eventing and Point to Pointing to an abrupt end. She continues to compete in Dressage with her ex-pointer. Their eldest, Georgina continues to be involved where she can, running syndicates and racing when not busy in her full time job as Assistant Trainer to Eve Johnson-Houghton.
