Ben Pauling Racing
After starting his career as assistant trainer to Nicky Henderson, Ben Pauling kick started his own training career in 2013, with just 8 horses which were mainly owned by family and friends.
Through a combination of hard work, dedicated staff and loyal owners Ben and the team are currently having one of their best seasons to date and are gearing up for an exciting next chapter in a brand-new state of the art training facility.
During Ben's short career to date he has amassed three Cheltenham Festival winners; Willoughby Court, Le Breuil and, most recently, Global Citizen as well as Aintree champions Barters Hill and Kildisart. We have some promising young horses that we are looking forward to showcasing next season.
Come and explore the Ben Pauling website, meet our friendly team, and view our lovely horses.
