Oliver Townend signs deal with Caunton Stud

In a collaboration unprecedented in equestrian sport but a regular occurrence in Formula 1 and Premiership football, Caunton Stud is very excited to announce the signing of world number one eventer and 2021 Olympic gold medallist Oliver Townend as its official rider. Victoria said: “Oliver is a brilliant horseman with a focus and a drive that keeps him at the top, and one of the hardest working people in the sport.”We have huge ambitions for Caunton; our dream is to create something world-class that has never been done before. “We all share a passion for horse sport, for quality and for success, and a vision for the future of the sport and the way in which we feel it needs to progress.”

Oliver, who has multiple victories at many of the world’s top events under his belt, including six at the highest level, CCI5*, said: “Accepting this contract with Caunton is hugely exciting and I’m delighted to be working with Victoria and Sir John; we have a mutual desire to promote and improve British breeding and the sport of eventing.” The Townend/Caunton collaboration can first be seen in action on February 12 at the British Breeding Stallion Event at Arena UK, Lincolnshire, and at the Caunton open day on February 27, which will feature all the Caunton Stud stallions.
