Welcome to the website of racehorse trainer, Richard Phillips where we hope to give you a taste of the excitement and fun of owning a racehorse at Adlestrop Stables.

Richard is a Cheltenham Festival and Listed Flat winning trainer with over 25 years’ experience of training racehorses to the highest level, both over jumps and on the Flat.

Richard and his Lycetts Team Champion three star team, offer a unique, professional, friendly service to all their owners and are proud of giving each horse individual attention to maximise their potential.

We hope that our website captures the excellent facilities and dramatic beauty of the Cotswolds through word, photo and film. We would very much enjoy welcoming you to visit Adlestrop Stables to see our friendly, competitive racing yard at work.


  • “I like being an owner at Adlestrop because I have had winners from a friendly yard in a beautiful part of the world. Richard and staff always make you feel very welcome.”

    Kate Davies
  • “As a member of the Adlestrop family, regardless of results, you are ensured of a lot fun and good company.”

    Adrian Wright
  • “What I like about Adlestrop is the way nothing is too much trouble for Richard or Joline to see that you enjoy ownership, and when visiting you are always made very welcome. The staff and horses are very happy and there is a lovely atmosphere. Owners are always kept very well informed as to the wellbeing of their horse, and given plenty of notice of when and where their horse may run. They are always welcome to visit. Also the social events are really good and there is always a very friendly group of people to socialise with.”

    Clementine Calver
  • “What I like about Richard’s yard is the informality. I can pop in any time and see the horses in the yard or up on the gallops and it is fun following their progress throughout the year. I have also learned a great deal talking to Richard which has made a trip to the races much more enjoyable. The other owners are a sociable bunch and we enjoy their company.”

    Jenny Stowell
  • “Mornings on the gallops are both informative and entertaining. What you hear about the horses is the truth, unlike some establishments where you are told what you want to hear.”

    Mike Barrett
  • “What we like about being owners at Adlestrop is we always have a memorable day out at the races win or lose. Also when we go to visit our horses we are always made very welcome at Adlestrop.”
