Possibly not the most exciting of developments but an improvement nevertheless… The barn roofs are now painted and it really does make a difference! ... See MoreSee Less

Always said you had the neatest yard I’ve ever seen (and guttering too !!)

Getting used to the current new ‘normal’ with liveries now able to ride again. The riding school horses are being brought back into work, with the hope of starting a phased return to ‘normal‘ throughout June 😀🐴👏 It is likely, while strict social distancing guidelines are in place, that we will start with riders with their own hats (& optional body protectors) who are able to mount and adjust girth/stirrups without assistance in order to keep two metres apart in line with Government guidelines.

This also means schooling liveries and lessons on your own horse can commence from the beginning of June 🐎

If you are interested, please get in touch ☎️

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 thank god!!! Lucy is REALLY missing her second family! (Her words)

Great news Helen Self Dodd, Can’t imagine how difficult it’s been for all of you. I’ve really missed my Friday Monty (and Helen!) time - I’m looking forward to my lessons again (with the most patient horse and teacher).

Well done, must be difficult, but I am sure the new normal will be appreciated by everyone, horses included.

Alice is desperate to get back for a lesson but we've got a plus 1 - Ellen's wanting a lesson too

👋🏻👋🏻 hello!!! A horse coming your way soon 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

30 minutes to ease me back in....

Fantastic opportunity for aspiring eventer on a budget

For Loan – to stay at current yard (NE19 1AF)

16hh, 12 year old grassroots eventer

Would suit confident/ambitious teenager or amateur looking to event.

Charlie is a smart horse and is both comfortable and successful competing at BE90/100 (40 foundation points). He is not however an easy ride all the time. He can occasionally be sharp, tense in the dressage and bucks quite a lot out hacking!

He doesn’t have a bad bone in his body and despite his quirks, is a fun horse for somebody with the time, patience and sensitivity to build a partnership with.

I have five other eventers and while I love this little horse, he is not a priority for me given that BE100 is his ceiling.

If Charlie can find his perfect new rider, I am happy to give them all the help, support and training they need to forge a successful partnership.

This is an amazing opportunity for somebody. Not only to find a new, super-smart horse, but to also to become part of a professional eventing team with all-round support:

• Established eventer to loan and treat as your own

• Superb facilities (including 60 x 30 floodlit arena, grass arena with full set of Jump 4 Joy show jumps, cross country fences, grass gallops)

• Unlimited support from on-site coach

• Become part of a professional eventing team

• Travel to events with the team

Hi my name is Nicola Graham. I am 42 years old. I am interested in taking on your eventer. I have had horses since I was 7.ive one day evented showjumped at Wembley done dressage comps although dressage isnt my favourite prefer the jumping. I had a 17.3 Irish draught who I competed on. He jumped for fun. Unfortunately I had to sell him as none of the farmers around thropton would let me keep him there

Oh wowzers. This is absolutely fab!

Charlie is a lovely boy 😍
