We pride ourselves on knowing the horses and will tailor their work accordingly. Horses enjoy a variety of activites to suit their personalities.

Our horses get individual care. They are seen  by the vet, the farrier, the osteopath and the equine dentist when needed.

Our smallest pony is 8hh and are largest horse is 17.3hh; we have some steady cobs and some more energetic warmbloods.
