Rest In Peace 2016 15.3hh Bay Gelding Thoroughbred (ex racehorse) "I used to be a racehorse but now I enjoy the much slower life here at Kingsmead. It has taken me a long time to relax and settle here but now I know I want to stay. I really enjoy hacking although the other horses think they can beat me - don't tell them I am not even trying!"

Herd life is important for horses; we have at least three herds here at Kingsmead. Come and enjoy watching the horses interact.

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.

Meeting  their needs

A horse for everyone​
