About Gaspard

Gaspard is an up-and-coming French event rider, currently based in the Surrey hills. 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, supported by a group of wonderful owners. If you are interested in having your horse based with Gaspard for breaking, schooling or competition livery, or are looking to purchase a future superstar, please get in touch via the contact page.

Have you ever dreamt of seeing your horse compete at the biggest shows in the UK, at the highest level? Maybe you are looking to become an owner for the first time and would like some guidance on buying a horse.


Gaspard is always looking for new owners to join his team and has a number of exciting young horses ready to progress up through the levels available for purchase. With great connections at top breeding stables across Europe, including the Ballypatrick stud in Ireland and the Haras de Louveaux stud in France, he is well placed to help source your next superstar.

If you are interested in having Gaspard produce your horse, please don't hesitate to call him to discuss further on 07831 899400.

"I couldn't be happier with how well Gaspard has produced my two homebred horses. He is a natural horseman, who has taken his time to understand them each as individuals and never rushed them to progress before they are ready.


I would highly recommend Gaspard to anyone looking for a rider to produce their horse, from both Novice to International level".

Jane Young, Owner of Zaragoza II
