The next generation in performance
Meet Alex Tordoff…
Alex Tordoff is a 21-year-old event rider from Leicestershire and the driving force behind Hyde Lodge Horses.
Previously trained by several 4* riders, such as Rosalind Canter, he was most recently based with J-P. Sheffield .
Alex was the top British rider at the 2015 European Junior Eventing Championships in Poland, finishing fifth overall.
Hyde Lodge Horses is his own brand new bespoke yard in Leicestershire where he is building up a string of event horses. He sources and produces quality young horses, as well as competing horses at all levels.
Alex is now looking for owners and/or syndicate members to join the journey.
Lorna has over 20 years experience in the equine industry having worked for a number of high profile companies in both sales and marketing roles.
She is currently the yard manager at Hyde Lodge.
She is also a fully qualified WOW saddle fitter and an agent for KAN body protectors.
“I have known Alex for a couple of years now and have seen him develop confidence in his riding and training. His time with J P Sheffield was hugely influential in establishing him as a calm, assured producer of young horses and I saw him improve steadily throughout that year. I had no hesitation at all in sending him a young horse my daughter had produced last season when she went to work for Micheal Jung in Germany. I knew Alex could be relied upon to continue this lovely young horse’s steady development. My daughter has not returned from the Jung’s yard after a full season so it was with great sadness that a sale went through organised entirely by Alex, I am sure that this lovely young horse and this charming young man both have very bright futures ahead of them.”

“Last year I realised a life’s dream and bought a young inexperienced horse. This would not have been possible without the facilities and support provided by Alex at Hyde Lodge Horses. I’m a busy Doctor working full time in the NHS who rides for fun and would not have had the time or knowledge to produce a youngster. It was so reassuring to know I had found the perfect environment to caregully produce the youngster up to a level when I would be confident to take over the ride. Right from sourcing a suitable horse, arranging viewings and help with the purchase process I could not have been in better hands. It’s immensely enjoyable to see my horse progress, become more confident and build a relationship with Alex. I enjoy my yard visits, am welcomed as part of the team and feel as such. There will be a lot to look forward to in 2018. Thank you Team Tordoff.”Dr Lisa Hamilton
“Delighted with the youngster I purchased from Hyde Lodge in 2017. A super stamp with a very trainable attitude. Alex was extremely professional with excellent trial facilities. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hyde Lodge to anyone looking for a well produced event horse.”Helen Needham; owner of Forever Noble
“We had the most fabulous time with Alex whilst he was competing our horse Chapman. He thrived off the facilities at Hyde Lodge, as well as the expertise that helped to devise his competition scheduele, taking us to the very best events. We always had a great time, thanks to the lovely hospitality that was laid on.”
Julia Gibson, owner of Chapman
