Hello

sorry for the lack of updates we have all been very busy, with some beuatiful horses in for training and backing/re-backing. we have had a 4yo ex-racer tb in for rebacking that had several mental and physical issues that is now going very well just after 4 wk and visits from physio, chiro and vet and correct work.

We have also had a very nice 4yo well bred gelding in for sale that was from returning clients and he was quite sharp but we quiet and carefully backed him and have faith he has a huge future ahead of him!

We currently have the stunning 4yo elsa in for backing who is the sweetest mare i have ever met!

Our own mare Hifa by Arezzo vdl x indoctro is also now starting to be broken and hacking nicely and starting school work and our own Moet has started her training and hope to get her out to some shows in a month or so...

Unfortunatly we have had some terrible news recently and had to have our lovely 5yo Bella put down so we are all extreamly upset after having her since a 2yo.

We will be visiting belgium and on the look out for some new horses...

We have also been busy painting all our jumps ready for the summer jump field and ordered a hot wash unit.

We look forward to a busy 2016...

Leyla was only with me 3weeks and she progressed very well. She had only ever been sat on and walked out on hacks so knew nothing and when she left she was working lovely!

Sorry for the lack of recent updates, its a very busy time for us but we had two lovely horses in over the last few weeks a coloured 3yo mare called luna for backing and a 4yo gelding called boston for re-backing both have come on leaps and bounds and over came individual issues, they both went home today and i wish their owners every sucess for the future!

Iv also been away for a few days for my birthday, been teaching alot and its lovely to see all my pupils out competing and winning its a very satisfying feeling!

Beautiful 4yo haas now qualified BD regional finals aswel as petplan summer finals in just four shows winning 3 out of the 4 shows, hes coming on very well and maturing lovely, he quite large so i wont be rushing him. He also went for another xcountry trip and showed heaps of improvements and loved every minute of it!

Weve also had updates from previous castle stud youngsters and are doing very well at the moment including placings in 5yo @ hickstead, 2nd in the 1.40 at wales, double clear in the 6yos and many other placings which is fantastic news for us.

We also had our yearly yard bbq yesterday which went down a treat!

a few pictures from previous weeks

Many thanks for following us!!!
