Our Happy Horses and Ponies

Our horses and ponies are all carefully selected for their health, stamina and most importantly, temperament.

Most of our horses are bought as unbroken young stock, and we break, school and bring them on ourselves. None of our horses are used for clients until they are proved to be safe, reliable and enjoyable rides, and the young horses are then ridden lightly by our most experienced staff and clients until they are quiet enough and fit enough, to be used for children and novices.

Unlike some other schools we do not deal in horses and do not believe in letting our clients loose on unschooled horses to make them ‘learn on the job’. We also do not overwork our horses, and treat them all as individuals. This policy pays dividends as we are lucky to have some super animals that go on to lead long happy lives.  Our longest serving pony, Danny, was with us at the start, and is still happy teaching children to ride at the age of 24. We have a selection to suit everyone from a childs first pony, to ex-competition horses, and are sure to have just the horse for you.
