WHAT DO WE DO?

Willie learnt his trade under the watchful eye of his well known father Bill Bryan, as showman, winning Supreme Champion at HOYS twice in his showing career; champion point to point trainer many times, breaking many records and producer of many top horses in all spheres.

Willie spent his youth mainly race riding, show jumping, showing and producing young horses with his father. He married Mandy who rode as an amateur for 10 years before retiring from race riding to have 4 children, 3 of whom ride. Peter rides as an amateur and shares his working year with Willie and his uncle Peter Bowen learning the Bryan/Bowen way. Josh rides as Apprentice on the flat for Andrew Balding.

Willie and Mandy started buying foals 10 years ago and producing them mainly for other people with good success. Even buying cheap fillies and producing them to win black type graded races. (He bought and produced the winner of the Aintree Championship Bumper 3 times with 3 different horses) Bill Bryan had a wonderful ‘eye’ when buying horses and foals which was so key to his success and it seems Willie has followed in his footsteps. He also is an avid follower of statistics and breeding and the crosses that make a racehorse and more importantly the ones to avoid.

Willie and Mandy are buying foals and producing them mainly ready for the 4yr old racing market. They are broken and have had several sessions of training including jumping by the time they are ready for sale. By this time we know they are tough and ready to go and Willie will have assessed their ability. Their formative years being on good pasture and top feed and supplements.

TESTIMONIAL

Willie and Mandy Bryan select foals with good confirmation and once the horses ability is established they build in toughness and confidence. This gives each horse a solid foundation for the years of racing ahead.
Foals to Racehorses is their speciality. Since being part of the foal buying syndicate for the last four years, we have seen countless successful examples.

Roy and Louise Swinburne

Breeder
Willie has an uncanny understanding of pedigree and dam lines, both essential attributes when buying young stock. Working along side Mandy at the sales, their attention to detail on confirmation and movement allow them to buy the correct young stock. A dynamic partnership!
Willie has broken in and managed my 2yr olds for many years, he certainly knows what is needed and always delivers.

George Snell

Buyer of foals and Seller of racehorses
We have been using Willie to produce our National Hunt foals and youngsters with excellent results. Willie and his team are highly knowledgeable and deliver a professional service with excellent facilities, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the yard to anyone looking for quality results and horses who are fully prepared to join any racing yard.

James and Jean Potter

Potter Group
We have known Willie and Mandy for some years and would not consider sending a young horse to start its training and education to anyone else. Their vast knowledge and experience is second to none . Horses are started correctly, not expected or asked to do anything before they are able and ready. When they are returned they are properly and professionally broken, confident, well fed and in good condition.
They don't stand idle in their boxes. Willie is extremely committed and maximises every bit of daylight. Few people work as diligently as these guys nowadays.
We would also value their opinion on any aspect of a horse, physiology, temperament and ability for its future job. You have to only look at the success Willie has achieved in his selection and production of young thoroughbreds to understand.
We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Mandy and Helen Pugh

Producers and sellers of Sport Horses
Having grown up competing alongside the expert showman Bill Bryan we knew years ago the expertise, hard work and dedication that this family all put into producing young horses so when we started buying young potential race horses it was only fitting that for their best start in life we send them to Willie and Mandy. Without exception every horse that has been broken and schooled there has been a real credit to them. We also like to send the older horses to them for pre training in readiness for the new season, it just freshens them up.
In recent years we have started investing in foals under the expert breeding knowledge of Willie and are looking forward to having some success hopefully in future years.
Our first foal recruit, now 2yrs old, has just been broken in and was a pleasure to see working up the gallops recently. We are so lucky to be a small part of their very successful business and wish them every success for the future.

Gwyn and Jane Brace

Horse Owner
I am a big fan of the Bryans and have no hesitation in recommending them.
They really take a lot of care and trouble to work out the right programme for each horse. They are always happy to discuss and advise on the next course of action to achieve the best outcome, whilst always being honest and realistic.
Their experience, knowledge and the great facilities they have are all invaluable and it is a real pleasure to have a horse there.
