We hope that you will find exactly what you are looking for on this website. We hope to provide interesting and easily-accessible information on all that is happening at Cropredy Lawn.

We aim to provide an introductory guide to our horses, staff and all that we get up to… within reason. The Trainer views this website as the most hungry and voracious animal in training at Cropredy Lawn.

I realise that it needs feeding with high protein, but palatable information at all times. I undertake to ‘keep the beast satisfied‘, but that does mean that I’m not prepared to supply a ‘daily blog’ of numbing inconsequence, just to calm the appetite of an invisible animal… or those feeding on it!

You will read what I think of a horse’s chances at the races, but will soon learn why I am plying my trade near Banbury and not within The Square Mile, Threadneedle Street or in Victor Chandler’s Office in sunny Gibraltar!

I sincerely hope that you will like what you see and that our style and openness will entice you take a much closer and personal look, by contacting me and then coming to see us at Cropredy Lawn.

Lord Marmaduke in the Loose jumping lane.
