Welcome to Wodehouse Stud & Equestrian Centre
Wodehouse Stud is based on the outskirts of Norwich, with easy access from the A11. The Stud is a family run business and is home to the Wodehouse Stud showjumping horses, ridden by India and Atiya Bussey and trained by Louise Bussey. Run alongside this is of course is our long term breeding programme in which we aim to produce quality sport horses for the modern day with an emphasis on temperament and ‘rideability’.
“Wodehouse stud has one of my favourite arenas to work in; huge with a good surface and a wide variety of fences to use, it’s a pleasure to deliver training sessions there. Well organised we offer training for every level of horse and rider. Resident riders, Atiya and India Bussey are amongst the most dedicated young riders I know. Since I’ve known them all their lives I also appreciate the support and solid guidance that come from their parents, Paul and Louise. Both girls work hard, train hard and strive to be professional in everyway and really get the results. They are particularly good at getting the best from every individual horse. These two will be successful in this sport for a long time.” – Mia Palles-Clark, British Showjumping UKCC Coach of the Year 2017

At Wodehouse Stud we take pride in our stables and we are always working on improving and developing our facilities to best meet the needs of both our horses and riders. We believe that creating a good yard atmosphere is key to having happy and healthy horses, and so this is always at the forefront of our minds in everything that we do here.
Wodehouse Stud is easily accessible, with good access to all major routes. However, we enjoy the best of both worlds, also enjoying lots of private hacking – with no main roads – which is exclusive to liveries at Wodehouse Stud (and those who pay an annual/monthly fee).

Founded in 2000 by Paul and Louise Bussey, Wodehouse Stud is a family run competition, breeding and livery stables located in Norfolk, just outside of Norwich.
With a wealth of experience in everything equestrian, but focusing now mainly on the showjumpers, Louise set out to breed and produce quality young horses for the modern day sport.
Since then, our breeding programme has flourished and with 2 to 3 foals every year who boast some of the world’s best breeding stallions as sires, we have some very exciting young stock coming through our stables.
Alongside this, daughters India and Atiya are both highly competitive in the sport and have already represented their country at the FEI European Championships for Youth, as well as having numerous Nations Cup appearances with much success on the international stage.
Over the past 20 years we have been developing our facilities here at Wodehouse Stud and continue to do so on an on-going basis. Our livery services allow us to share this with the wider equestrian community and we are proud to offer top class care to our clients, with the happiness and health of the horses being at the forefront of everything we do.
