Hansted Stud

A Memory of Bricket Wood

I worked at Hansted stud just before the estate was sold up after the death of Gladys Yule, who with her mother, Lady Yule (at one time said to be the richest woman in England), bred some of the finest Arabian horses in the country. I have some great memories of my time working there but also some sad, like taking all the thoroughbred mares and foals to the Newmarket Bloodstock sales. Many of the Arabian horses were sent to Studs in America and Australia.
