Grace Muir grew up with horses on her father, David John (Ian) Muir’s, Fawley Stud, which he owned and ran as one of the most successful studs of its time. He foaled in excess of 95 mares each year and stood up to five stallions at any one time.
She expanded her knowledge of thoroughbreds and the racing industry whilst working for Kim Brassey, Jenny Pitman and Richard Hannon, before moving on to KBIS, the equine insurance specialists, where she worked in the claims department. She has gained a wealth of knowledge throughout her involvement with horses from a very young age and was appointed Stud Manager at North Farm Stud in 1998. She has continued to expand the business and evolve with the times so that North Farm Stud is in a position to offer a full range of services.
Grace's knowledge of the veterinary/rehabilitation side is extensive; at a young age she wanted to become a vet but now is doing the next best thing, nursing horses back to health and getting to the bottom of veterinary issues they have to get them back on track to enjoy a healthy life. This is an invaluable asset when assessing horses and their ability to do other jobs after racing, it enables her to get them back on track following their injuries.
With the superb facilities available and the highest standards of care on offer, owners can be assured of a very high quality of livery and support for horses and riders alike. North Farm Stud is diversifying into holding regular competitions and having part- and full-liveries at the yard as well as clinics to enable people to broaden their knowledge of many aspects of horse care.
Grace has always had a keen interest in the welfare and future of ex-racehorses and her interest in the rehoming side has grown since 1989. Fully supported by her parents and the team at North Farm Stud she has successfully rehomed more than 500 horses over the years.
