Haydons relocate from East Burrow Farm

JOHN and Sarah Haydon, who have operated East Burrow Farm in Devon for the past 22 years, are relocating next month to Clarendon Farm in Teffont, near Salisbury.

The Haydons have bought the 60-acre stud, which is situated just off the A303 link road and has been recently been home to a successful showjumping operation as well as an Arab breeding and training establishment.

The farm’s stallions Double Trigger and Tobougg are also set to make the move, which is scheduled to take place during the second week of December.

“We’ve enjoyed our time at East Burrow,” said John Haydon. “We’ve been successful here, but as Tobougg’s popularity continues to increase, we have become increasingly aware that the geographical position of East Burrow is putting anadded strain on the finances of mare owners who are keen to use him. Time and transport equals more money, so we felt in this
climate that it was the right time to become more accessible.

“More and more mares are now walking in and the move will put us two hours nearer Newmarket and only a stone’s throw from the Lambourn area.”

Haydon said Clarendon Farm is situated on well drained limestone ground and, although it is slightly smaller than East Burrow, he is confident of being able to secure further land.

“The stud has been beautifully set up,” said Haydon. “We only have fine tuning to do and by moving now we will be ready for the coming season.”
