Nuttall Equestrian is based at Vale Farm, Queen Camel, home of the Nuttall family.

About Us

Vale Farm is a five hundred acre arable and livestock farm set in the heart of the Sparkford Vale, one and half miles from the A303 which enables easy access to all parts of the country.  The farm is an award-winning farm for conservation and we are very proud of the woodland, ponds and wide headlands around the fields.  Hence our horses have a wonderful setting to exercise, work and relax. 

Nuttall Equestrian is based at Vale Farm.  Rupert Nuttall owns and runs the business along with Harriet and a loyal team of Becca, Nat and Lucy.  Harriet married Will Biddick in October 2018.  Will has been Champion point to point rider for several years and runs a successful business breaking and pre-training racehorses. 

Harriet helps produce the young horses and competes at International and National showjumping. Harriet and A Touch Imperious were part of the winning Nations Cup Team in Odense 2014. They were also third  in the Hickstead Derby and that's where her success started.  2015 went well too with Galway Bay Jed and Dulf progressing well in the young horse classes and A Touch Imperious coming second in the Hickstead Derby.  In 2016 Harriet again had great results at Hickstead, 2nd once again in the Derby with A Touch Imperious and winning the speed Derby on Silver Lift.  In 2017, again the Derby went well jumping clear in the first round finishing second.  Galway Bay Jed was a last minute call up for the 5* Nations Cup in Dublin.  Fabulous experience for both Harriet and Jed.  2018 has started well with all horses jumping well at the Sunshine Tour culminating with Jed finishing 3rd in The Invitational Grand Prix.  A Touch Imperious jumped on the 5* Nations cup Team at Falsterbo, was reserve for WEG and a last minute call up for Barcelona Nations Cup Final.  He was 3rd in the 5* Grand prix at St Gallen and, once again jumped superbly in the Hickstead Derby and the Hamburg Derby.

Harriet has attracted some very supportive sponsors - Equine Products UK Ltd, Red Mills horse feed, Voltaire saddles, Ariat, Streamz, Manfredi,  Equiclass and Cowsfeet along with help from Fosseway Fodder and  Williams and Williams Arenas.

Over the years, Rupert has bought young horses in Ireland and we produce them further ready to sell as Eventers/showjumpers/hunters.  Most of the horses Harriet competes have come from Ireland as young horses.  Dulf is one of the exceptions, he is a Dutch warmblood and owned by Hugo and Pippa James who are very supportive.
