We welcomed the new boy Billy for two weeks training and help with his jumping as he had completley lost his confidence and was refusing to jump, he wouldnt even walk over a pole when he first turned up but by the end of the two weeks he had improved greatly and was jumping small fences

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!!!

As winter settles in we are very busy with more work and shorter days! All full liveries and youngsters are tucked up in their stables now, so lots of mucking out.

Lots of lessons to fit in with pupils all working very hard and horses improving!

All the youngsters are working lovely and 4yo dior ( kannan x balou du rouet) is now back from her holiday and happy to be back in ridden work and had a jump the other day and felt super!

The gorgeous 4yo charlie went home yesterday after coming to us to be backed and he went away a different horse full of confidence and loves jumping bless him, will miss him!

Also have a new 3yo turning up next weekend for backing due to being postponed to me injuring myself :-(
