We have an extremely exciting announcement to make, Caunton Manor Stud is the new Title Sponsor of the British Eventing Young Horse Championships at BEDE Events Osberton International Horse Trials.

The Championship, for four, five, six and seven year olds, attracts the finest young event horses from across the country, and is the place to spot the equine stars of the future. Past winners include the likes of NZB Land Vision, World Equestrian Games silver medallist Cool Mountain, Redesigned, Billy Landretti and 2012 Olympic horse Borough Pennyz.

We are delighted to be supporting British Eventing and BEDE Events with the Young Horse Championships, not only for the next two years but hopefully for many more to come. The Young Horse Championships at Osberton is a pinnacle event for many breeders and producers of top young horses that are key to the future of the sport. We hope to recognise and reward these achievements encouragingly and also work closely with British Breeding.

2019 has been a fantastic inaugural year for us, and the Young Horse Championships is a positive stepping stone. We are extremely grateful of the support we have received and to the breeders who we have worked with so far.

We braved the soaring temperatures at the end of July in the South East at The All England Jumping Course at Hickstead. Comfort jumped two nice clear and steady rounds in the Foxhunter for his education. After his stud duties are finished this season he will concentrate on his competition career with Matthew Wright.

Caunton First Class and Matthew have also secured their place at the British Five Year Old Championships at Osberton in October, qualifying at their first attempt.


Both Dankeschön and Branduardi have been presented at the Competition Stallions and British Breeding Stallion Event at Addington Manor yesterday. Branduardi made his first appearance at a stallion show with Amy Woodhead and Dankeschön made his first appearance in the UK. We were so impressed with the performance of both stallions and thought they behaved impeccably.
