March Stud was established by Tom March and Piggy French to breed, compete and sell outstanding equine athletes for the top level in international equestrian sport. Their combined experience, knowledge and expertise make a formidable combination for producing exceptional horses with the ability, mentality, soundness and training to excel at the highest level in show jumping and eventing.
Tom has a lifelong involvement with horses behind him and has been working alongside partner Piggy French since 2012. He has competed in Eventing up to Advanced/*** level himself but now devotes his time to sourcing horses and the breeding and business sides of March Stud. He regularly travels across Europe in search of horsepower of all ages and is often seen at auctions and competitions in the UK, Ireland and Europe.
Piggy has long been established as one of the leading event riders in the world. She has been a team member for GB at World and European Championships and won the Individual Silver medal at the 2009 Europeans at Fontainebleau. She is a past winner of CCI/CIC*** events such as Barbury, Blenheim, Bramham, Hartpury and Houghton as well as being placed 2nd at CCI**** level at both Badminton and Burghley.
March Stud breeds with a singular focus on producing outstanding equine athletes with the mental and physical capability to compete at the highest level in either show jumping or eventing. Our broodmares all descend from families proven at the highest level. They are carefully paired with stallions to complement their strengths and weaknesses to produce horses with the highest performance potential.
March Stud produces and competes horses of all ages in show jumping and eventing. We have a selection of horses from just broken youngsters right up to those already excelling on the international stage. Piggy's outstanding ability in the saddle means that each and every horse receives the best possible start to their education. This ensures the foundations for a successful career are put in place right from the very beginning.
All horses at March Stud are thoroughly vetted and x-rayed meaning you can buy with confidence. We produce horses in a quiet and sympathetic manner with the focus on giving each horse the individual attention they need to fulfil their potential. We are proud of the horses we have produced and take great interest in following their development as they progress up the grades with their new riders. Do keep in touch.
