About Us/Services

About Us:

We have over 20 years experience in all areas of the equine world including successful showing and BSJA results. Samantha Castle has won consistently at county level showing and qualified for the RIHS and jumped up to 1.30 BSJA. 

We have produced and graded top stallions that have gone on to produce fantastic young-stock and we have also produced 2 years olds through the age classes/finals upto jumping at International Grand prix level.

 Highly recommended with lots of references available.

 We specialise in young-stock and troubled horses of all types and sizes.We are producers of a small selection of hand picked quality young-stock that are slowly and professionally produced. We run a yard dedicated to finding, training and competing a small selection of horses. The horses are competed in local and National shows to gain experience and results.

All horses are started correctly and are never rushed, we believe all horses are individual and should be given time to mature.
The horses are picked for their temperament and suitability to the job. 

We have sold horses who are now competing all over the world in dressage/ showjumping and eventing. We are always open and honest about every horse to try ensure the right home is found and always have a follow up service to keep in contact with all new owners. 

We have been a successful running livery yard, equestrian centre now for 10 years and have a fantastic clientele list and look forward to a busy future!
