The Home of Team Stockdale

Dovecote Farm

Tim and Laura moved to Roade 1996. Extensive changes have been made to the yard over the years. The main yard had a huge overhaul in 2000 improving air flow and sunlight to all the stables. The indoor and outdoor schools both had to be re-surfaced when Tim first arrived. The stables all have Equimat stable matting to protect the horses in their boxes. It provides excellent drainage too. The tack room, an old hay store, was lined out and now looks fantastic with Tim’s winning plaques on the wall.


Joe and Laura offer training to children, young riders and adults at all levels. Email your enquiry to

Lecture Demonstration

Tim was an expert at giving Lecture Demos for nearly twenty years; his evenings were informative and humorous. He would provide three horses, showing a novice, intermediate and Grade A horse. These horses will all be put through their paces providing you with an insight in the day to day training of a show jumper. These Demos were adapted to suit the audience, whether it’s to entertain the Pony Club or Riding Club rider or to provide information to the complete beginner or to learn how to walk a course.

The Yard

Team Stockdale is backed up by a dedicated team of riders and grooms based at Dovecote Farm. At any one time there is an average of 20 horses in training, ranging from proven world-class show jumpers to novice horses beginning to learn the ropes. 

Team Stockdale look after the 2 schools (1 indoor and 1 outdoor), a jumping course, a horse walker, solarium, feed room, tack room and 3 lorries.

The Lorries

There are 3 lorries in the fleet, which can be seen travelling all over Europe throughout the season.
