Francesca PollaraSunhill Stud was founded by Francesca Pollara, an accomplished horsewoman having been previously placed third in the Italian National Trainers Championships, and since beginning her riding career at the age of 8 Francesca has successfully competed in all disciplines.

Francesca has based permanently in England since 1998, specifically in Gloucestershire, the heart of good riding country. Francesca has achieved a number of qualifications, including a Flathorse trainers license and a Lady riders License as well as being awarded a 1st Level Riding Instructor Qualification.


Sunhill stud was founded with the strategy to provide an exclusive and tailored search and selection consultancy service to professional and non-professional riders, and help to form lasting equine partnerships. This has been successfully achieved by operating a discrete and highly professional service, specifically designed to minimise the loss of precious time, to ensure the maintenance of confidentiality and, most importantly, to match the horse to the rider’s needs.
