Badgerstown is set on the edge of the Marlborough Downs. The property was created by Stan Mellor the first National Hunt jockey to ride over 1000 winners. In 2002 the Colthurst Family from Cork acquired the property and turned it into an equestrian establishment.
Mark bought Badgerstown in 2012 and moved in immediately after the London Olympics and began the process of updating the facitlities. The property benefits from over 30 stables, staff accommodation, all weather full sized menage, all weather & grass gallops, cross country course, post & railed paddocks.
It also has a lovely main house and gardens which have much benefitted from Carolyn's influence in the extension and designs to the original "managers house".
The cross-country schooling course and gallops are open for outside business by prior arrangement. More schooling fences are constantly added to give a wider range for clients.
The water complex is excellent and there are several portables that are moved around so that the course is dynamic and ever changing.
Mark is available for cross country lessons at his base, use the contact page to get in touch with us.
