Welcome to the home of Gaspard Maksud
Gaspard is an up-and-coming French team event rider, currently based in the Surrey hills in the UK. Originally from Laval, France, he began his riding career at the tender age of 11 and began his success by winning the French Junior championship at just 16 years old. After achieving the Ambassadeurs Sportifs Lavallois in 2011 and 2013, Gaspard then made the decision to move to the UK in order to focus full time on pursuing a career in three-day eventing.
Upon arriving in the UK in 2013, Gaspard was fortunate enough to be based with international rider Andrew Nicholson before going on to work for Sam Griffiths the following year. Having gained invaluable knowledge and experience during his time with these eventing legends, Gaspard then worked for the Morelands Stud before setting up his own yard.
Gaspard now has an exciting string of very talented horses, in both eventing and showjumping, supported by a group of wonderful owners. If you are interested in having your horse based with Gaspard for schooling, competition livery or are looking to purchase a future superstar, please get in touch via the contact page.
