Meet The Team

The Owners - Mr. And Mrs. Phillips

Mike and Emma Phillips have owned Quainton Stud since 2004 It is their dream and passion to help provide riders with the very best bred horses for world class competition and simple enjoyment alike. Mike and Emma have identified that a lack of world quality bloodlines and support for the British breeding programme has led to a decrease in the quality and quantity of world class horses available to Britain’s leading riders.

Mike and Emma work tirelessly to promote and encourage the best bred horses in Britain and as owners to Quainton Stud they are fantastic ambassadors for British Breeding around the world.
