We are a family run business owned and managed by Harriet Crosbie-Barcroft. Harriet attended the exclusive Battle Abbey School and in her teenage years modelled in between her school time with a well known brand. It was at this point in her life that Harriet realized her real passion was always going to stay with horses. She sold her first horses at the age of 17 and quickly became a well known name in the buying and selling market. In between competing and building up Cornerwood Stud she has bridged some strong relationships between Top Breeders and Producers throughout Europe and Ireland.
Although Harriet has been privileged to have had a good start in education she is still only 21 years of age and has had to work incredibly hard to kick start her equine career she is a keen showjumper and has had to work her way up the ladder selling many of her good horses to move her career forward. She has built up the yard over the last few years and has managed to introduce a string of very exciting young horses through her ability to spot ‘a diamond in the rough’ which are now desting for the top level in showjumping. One in particular to watch is Drumiller Diamond.
