Andrew Matthews Balding (born 29 December 1972) is a racehorse trainer based at Park House Stables, Kingsclere, near Newbury, Berkshire.
Balding attended Caldicott School, a boys preparatory school, and Radley College, a public school. He became a licensed trainer in January 2003, when he succeeded his father Ian Balding.
His elder sister is Clare Balding. His maternal grandfather was the trainer Peter Hastings-Bass and his maternal uncle William Hastings-Bass, 17th Earl of Huntingdon, former trainer to Queen Elizabeth II. His maternal grandmother Priscilla Hastings is descended from the Earls of Derby.
Balding has been married to his wife Anna-Lisa since 15 July 2005. The couple has two sons, Jono and Toby, a daughter, Flora, and a boxer dog, Tonto.
Notable horses trained by Andrew Balding include Casual Look, the winner of the Epsom Oaks in 2003. The win led to a very emotional post-race interview with his sister.
In 2014, the Baldings' Park House Stables were visited by Irish President Michael D. Higgins as part of his State Visit to the UK.
