The move into the equestrian industry was a natural step for Tim & Carolyn to take when they set up Wadswick Country Store. Horses had always been a huge part of their lives. Carolyn was brought up trundling around the country in the back of a horse lorry with her parents showing horses. Her father, Gordon Giddings, built a large and successful stud with some renowned sires including Master Spiritus, who produced many successful event horses. Tim’s father, Roger, was also a keen amateur jockey and racehorse breeder when he wasn’t farming and Tim rode the occasional point to point, not bad for someone who is nearly 6ft3!
We’ve always stayed true to our equestrian heritage and nearly all of our staff are passionate equestrians!
