The Oppenheimer family first started Headmore Livery and Stud in 1988. Over the years, the business has steadily grown to its present size of approximately 45 horses. Set in 50 acres of Hampshire countryside, it boasts outstanding facilities.

Our approach is to provide individual care for each horse and their owner, particularly specialising in producing the ‘happy’ athlete. Our clients range from international dressage horses, eventers and ponies, through to retired family friends. Our aim is to make sure you enjoy your sport. We make our facilities available at times which are convenient to you and create a relaxed and peaceful environment for your and your horses. We work hard to ensure that your horse has a routine which is as close to nature as possible.


Sarah Oppenheimer, has over 40 years of experience in the equestrian industry, and has been joined in running of the stud by her daughter Alice. Alice was a member of the 2009 Young Rider European team and since then she has been working her way up through the grades and has won internationally at Big Tour and been on several Nations Cup Teams. She now has an outstanding team of horses, whom you can read about on this website Together they help owners maximise their enjoyment with their horses, as well as producing homebred top quality young dressage horses to compete and sell.
