Clive Richardson, Cumbria, UK
Clive Richardson has competed in a wide range of equestrian disciplines in the United Kingdom, America and on the European continent including show jumping, driving trials, working hunter classes, native ponies, hacks and Arabs, cross country, and showing. He has also hunted with a number of mounted packs in both Britain and France. He has broken and trained horses and ponies both for riding and harness work.
Clive has lectured extensively on the subjects of native ponies, the evolution of British horse breeds, the development of horse-drawn vehicles and other equestrian-related subjects. He has given radio broadcasts on similar themes, and worked as a consultant for Scottish Television on a series about working horses. He has also conducted instructional clinics on both sides of the Atlantic on showing native ponies, carriage driving and dealing with problem horses.
A successful native pony owner and breeder, Clive has also bred and exhibited rare breed sheep for around 25 years. His Jacob flock has produced champion animals at most of the UK’s major shows. He is a council member of the Jacob Sheep Society, edits its magazine, “The Jacob Journal”, and judges sheep throughout the UK. He is also interested in rare breed poultry.
