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.

Having had horses with Paul and his Team since 2004, I know how much they care and indeed how hard they work to achieve the success and fun that horse ownership promotes
Paul is perfect at keeping in touch with his owners and wherever you go racing with Paul – Bangor, Newbury, Haydock or Cheltenham – you can be sure of a lot of fun and a great day out.
Paul is a fantastic horseman who always conducts himself with a touch of class. We have achieved great things with Paul in a relatively short space of time. He is a great communicator and his handling of Gwafa has been second to none. We look forward to continuing this successful relationship in the future.
