Fiona Stuart – Ex International Eventer

Fiona Stuart, an ex-international eventer, is the sole owner of Tullochan Stables. Originally set up as a working eventing yard, during her successful International Eventing Days. And with her success came her invitation to be the first woman ever to be selected for the Olympic eventing team! As such, she has many amazing exciting accolades under her belt. But now her competition days are over, she runs many clinics around Scotland and at home. As well as her training, she runs her stables in Alexandria (on the cusp of Stirlingshire). Tullochan Stables is nows a friendly and happy home for competitors and happy hackers alike.

Fiona Stuart Outwith Horses

Fiona Stuart’s past is not only glittering when it comes to horses. She also set up the Tullochan Trust, in memory of her late father (one of the most highly regarded soldiers and one of the most decorated soldiers in WW2, Brigadier Pearson). Here she transformed the lives of hundreds of children in the local region, and, almost single-handedly drove the drug gangs from the Vale. As such, she worked tirelessly to drive the ambitions, confidence, and belief systems of impoverished children. As such she removed the demand and supply chain infrastructure for the street gangs. And she was hugely popular with now grown adults, recognising just what she had done for them as kids and how she had turned around their lives to bright futures.
