About Us

Quainton Stud Competition & Training Centre is located only one hour from London and is set within 166 acres of beautiful paddocks, hosting state of the art facilities.

We host a huge range of events for all levels of riders including Showjumping, Dressage, Combined Training, and Eventing competitions plus our customised training days and residential camps take place throughout the year.    

Our British Showjumping events take place between April and October in our fantastic, spacious main outdoor arena. In 2018 we are looking forward to welcoming both senior and junior competitors to the stud.

We are also proud to offer our unaffiliated customers the opportunity to train and compete with us, and offer unaffiliated show jumping events at weekends as well as clear rounds and training shows throughout the week. Our unaffiliated show jumping aim to provide a fun and relaxed environment for adults and children alike – as well as our regular shows, we run Easter, Halloween and Christmas shows with themed fancy dress, fun classes and special prizes. Our training shows are aimed at grass roots and professionals – an excellent opportunity to compete for prize money, whilst being allowed the chance to train over our Grand Prix set of show jumps. Perfect for getting some miles on the clock before jumping under record!

Eventer’s Challenges are a firm favourite at Quainton Stud, and are held a small number of times throughout the summer season. These shows run from 60cm-1m, and involve a combination of show jumps and cross country fences – jumping from Arena to our Grass Cross Country paddock. These are great fun, and are suited for the novice and nervous to the seasoned competitor.

British Dressage shows run all year round, from Prelim to Advanced Medium at our standard shows. We do, on occasion, run classes us to PSG – so please keep an eye on our schedules for this! 

Unaffiliated Dressage series are run in winter and summer seasons, and offer classes from Intro to PYO (Elementary and Medium level), to cater for those just starting out, to those looking to move up through the ranks. These shows are incredibly popular all year round, and we have a wonderful range of judges who enjoy watching our competitors progress from show to show!

Our popular combined training series runs from the spring to the autumn, and involves riding a dressage test before heading outside for a show jumping round. Ever-popular, these shows offer tests from Intro/60cm up to PYO (Pre/Nov/Ele)/1m.  


Our superb facilities are available to hire by individuals, trainers and organisations for schooling or holding clinics and competitions.
