Wish Upon a Star


16.1hh   Sire: Gribaldi   Dam: Pasmiek (Houston)

Wish Upon a Star combines breath taking looks with an incredible temperament and an enviable BE record. 

Having evented successfully to Advanced level his incredible temperament makes covering and competiting no problem for this lovely Gribaldi son. His oldest crop have started their proper eventing careers in 2015 with great success  following some great results in the BYEH series.

Philanderer II


16.2hh 2006  Sire: Jumbo (Skippy)  Dam: Dam Ornela (Snap Surprise) by Mangan (TB)  Graded Breeder’s Elite

Advanced Event Horse Philanderer had a really busy 2015 with plenty of coverings during his second stud season. 

He combined this with a terrific eventing season with Tim Cheffings, winning over fifty points and taking his total to one hundred and seventeen points, he was placed at advanced level and delivered a great double clear in the CIC three star at Blenheim. He can be seen out this season with Young Rider Libby Seed.


FROZEN SEMEN: £750.00 (PER dose)

Advanced Event Horse  16.1hh Dark Brown  Sire: Jumbo   
Dam: Summer Jane (TB) Approved BWBS

A lighter framed, more refined version of JUMBO with an extra cross of TB blood. A late starter to stud duties he has already produced some lovely youngsters, the oldest of which can be seen out eventing this season. 

JIGILO is the ultimate ‘cross country machine’ fast, bold and genuine.
An ideal cross on  stronger mares and like his half brother yet to produce a chestnut.

Brief Encounter

FROZEN SEMEN: £350 (for 3 doses - one embryo)

Advanced Event Horse   16hh Bay  Sire: Jumbo   Dam: Grafham Society  
Approved BWBS.

This charismatic stallion is a real looker!
He has already produced countless County Show Champions and HOYS qualified animals. He consistently stamps his stock with big paces and his wonderful temperament. He is yet to sire a chesnut foal. Brief Encounter is consistently siring talented athletic horses with great trainability and an impressive jump. He already has stock at Intermediate Level with his offspring finding favour with International riders. Horses to watch include Fleeting Meeting, a Chance Affair ridden by Jonty Evans and his full brother Joyride ridden by Tom McEwen.


FROZEN SEMEN: £350 (for 3 doses - one embryo)   

A beautiful 16.3 bay stallion by Wish Upon A Star who is a late starter to eventing. 

He is from the same dam as Epic (Andrew Nicholson’s advanced eventer) he did his first event at West Wilts last year, with a double clear and a 26 dressage. His first foals are due this year. 

A Moment in Time

fresh or chilled: £550 

Sire: Wish Upon A Star   Dam: Jonella by Jumbo

Grafhamstud are really excited about this young stallion.
He was champion at his SHB grading last year and achieved the highest score of all the stallions at the grading. He won the four year old Burghley Young Event Horse at Gatcombe, and as started BE Eventing. He is now based with Georgie Strang where he has two very successful seasons, finishing on an excellent double clear in the two star at Bicton. This season he will move up to Intermediate, we believe this stallion is something quite special who excels in all three disciplines.
