Please read below some of the testimonials we have received from some of our previous clients.
Just a quick thank you for staging your lovely training show on Sunday. It was such a delight to be at such a well run event at a wonderful venue. I know such competitions take quite a lot of organising for probably not a huge return, but it really was a treat to have a Sunday morning at a local venue. Plus the best show food in the country!
Many thanks again
Thank you for a wonderful camp,the weekend was packed with lots to do and great company.
Thank you Kim and The Gingerbreadman
Thanks to you and everyone at Quainton Stud for giving us such a great weekend. I was so happy to be back 'in the game' and really enjoyed Adam's training and meeting everyone on the course. And your cooking was fab!
Claire (and Mr Meridien!)
I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the Quainton Jump Camp.
I had a brilliant time, enjoyed every minute and learnt a lot ? I think it was a great success.
I was lucky enough to buy my lovely mare Cruella from Quainton already in foal to Chateau de Brion. Chateau has been a very good match for Cruella (Cardino x Lord) and they produced a foal of real quality.
DJ Chinook has had a special something about him since the moment he was born and he is maturing into a beautiful colt. Chinook is now 26 months old and I could not be happier with him. His temperament is exceptional, he is willing to please and has a sense of humour!
He thrives in the care of all at Quainton and I am very much looking forward to seeing him under saddle next year. Chateau really does seem to be producing some quality youngsters

Quirifino Quainton yearling out of my Graf Grannus showjumping mare - he was 2nd at Herts County Show 2010 in the Sports Horse class.
This Stallone Quainton yearling won the Sport Horse Class at Herts County Show 2010 and stood reserve champion - so a very good day indeed.
Two years ago when we inseminated our 18 year-old 3/4 tb mare, it was quite a risky business...
The mare just retired from the eventing scene, she was still maiden and the stallion we choose was quite 'unknown' and still very young: Stallone Quainton.
But we believed in his quality. The result is a lovely darkbrown filly: Joyful Tidings. We're delighted with her! She's very well-proportioned and easy-to-handle. She has far better gaits than her mother, Stallone especially improved the looks, the walk and the trot. The filly is also not easily impressed. Joy is now almost 10 months old and has her own personality. I hope she will make a topclass eventing prospect!
As you can see, he is exceptionally handsome as well as being very good to handle, calm and an absolute darling. Certainly temperament wise he brilliant and it would be interesting to know if all the offspring were as good.
He is also moving well. He has a good amount of bone and his legs appear to have turned into stilts recently after a huge growth spurt (my daughter is quite small but you can get some idea of size from the pictures on the drive). Certainly he is not going to be small, though the mare is only 15.2, but he is not yet two (until the end of May 2010) and he already dwarfs our three year old who is also out of the same mare by a 16.2 stallion.
Altogether we're thrilled.
Katie is now stood about 14hh and all I can say is WOW, she is a proper little horse in a pony size package. I cant believe how elegant and pretty she is!!!!
I took them out in pairs and loose jumped them yesterday, only one fence up to about 90 cms she was superb over a fence, we're not really set up for loose jumping as our menage fence is a bit small - only waist height, Katie made a really good job of it and her paces were fantastic, unfortunately she did get slightly bored and decided to just jump out of the school over the post and rail!!!!!! Trotted up and popped over it.
All I can say is she is absolutely stunning and im thrilled!!!!
