About Us

Hillwood Stud was founded in 1972. The facilities have been upgraded considerably since Charlie and Tracy Vigors took over the lease in August 2005.  There are now 56 stables separated into five separate units and spread over two farms as well as 130 acres of paddocks that are well protected by trees and hedges for shelter.

The stud now boasts some of the finest facilities available including a 2.5 furlong railed circular all weather gallop, two covered Claydon horse walkers and a Polytrack Lunge ring.
