About Grafham Stud

Grafham Stud is probably best known as home of JUMBO – The International Advanced Event stallion who has sired an Olympic Medallist and the winners of Badminton, Blenheim, Bramham, Samur, Kentucky and multiple winners of Burghley.

Standing at Grafham stud are JIGILO, and PHILANDERER who are all Advanced Eventers along with the Gribaldi son WISH UPON A STAR, who is also advanced. Grafham Stud specialises in breeding competition horses as well as offering excellent stud facilities for visiting mares. Located in the rolling Devon hills the stud is just an hour from Bristol and less than half an hour from the M5.

The Stud welcomes visitors by prior appointment when you can meet ‘the boys’ up close and see for yourself their incredible temperaments.  There is usually a small selection of young, homebred horses for sale if your preference is to buy not breed.
