About Keevil Racing

Meet the Team.

In order to achieve our individual style of training, Keevil Racing employees all have a wide range of backgrounds in the equine industry. From Eventing to hunting and racing to show jumping the team brings together a wide range of skills and qualities which can be used to the advantage of our horses.

Full Time.

Caroline Keevil

Caroline Keevil

To introduce myself, I am originally from Middlesex where my father was a veterinary surgeon and an equine/small animal specialist. I have competed and trained horses to advanced level in Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, and Driving, and have pre-trained many young racehorses.

From my former yard on the top of the Mendip Hills in Somerset I successfully trained Point to Pointers for 10 years with close to 100 winners, and many Hunter Chase successes. Many of my young recruits went on to win under rules for licenced trainers, and this prompted me to take out a Public Licence in 2008.

In August 2010 Pat and I moved to Larkinglass Farm, at Motcombe in Dorset. I now hold a joint licence allowing me to train both National Hunt and Flat horses.

In May 2016 we moved to our new base at Spring Barton Farm, at Midford near Bath. With the outstanding views, acres of beautiful turnout, miles of quiet hilly lanes for hacking and fitness work, shiny new well ventilated indoor Monarch stables, roofed horse walker, large outdoor school and wonderful grass gallops (soon to be all weather gallops!) this is racehorse heaven.

Bea works for us as a full time work rider, she is particularly good with the quirky tricky rides and Palmaria is her favourite.

In the afternoons she also has two of her own horses that she events.

Laura was brought up in Somerset and following a stint in Yorkshire working for Brian Ellison, is now back in the west country.

As well as riding out most mornings, Laura will be helping Caroline in the office looking after the website and social media as well as general yard and horse admin.

Lauras biggest passion is hunting and can be found on the hunting field whenever possible!

Hannah will be familiar to some having worked for Caroline previously when she was based on the Mendips. She will be at Spring Barton riding and schooling as well as accompanying horses to the races.

Hannah spent a year in New Zealand working for a three star event rider and now back in the UK, is eventing her own horse and also enjoys hunting.

Jockeys.

Wally Irvine - Transport Manager

Originally Wally was a jump jockey, riding over 100 winners, he then went on to ride Godolphins lead horses for Llammtara and Dubai Millennium, before hanging up his boots to be 2nd head lad to John Gosden.

10 years ago he started up his transport business, and has done all Caroline's transport for the last 4 years. Wally's vast experience in the racing industry has been a tremendous help to Caroline and all the staff, his patience, depth of knowledge an attention to detail are invaluable to us.
