The Balding Family
The Balding family are the current custodians of the famous Park House training establishment. With over 170 horses in their care, effective teamwork is essential to the running of the successful operation.
A wealth of experience combined with the energy of youth provides a team for all seasons, to ensure that Kingsclere will move with the times, and that its future promises to continue the legacy of its glorious past. Working closely together Andrew, Anna Lisa, Ian and Emma Balding and their first class support team create a formidable force at Kingsclere.
The running of an operation as large as Kingsclere is extremely labour intensive and there are around seventy people employed at Park House, with the majority of the staff directly involved with the riding and general care of the horses in training.
Teamwork and attention to detail are essential, and the support team is organised to ensure that the operation runs smoothly and effectively, and that the horses receive a very high standard of care.
We are very fortunate to have Huntswood as associate sponsor of the yard. Huntswood are a leading resourcing and consultancy firm, based in Reading and founded by chairman David Brownlow (a long standing owner at Kingsclere) in 1996. In addition to supporting the yard, Huntswood also sponsor the apprentice jockeys at Park House.
