Well 2018 has certainly had its big changes already!

Posted on April 21, 2018 at 8:15 AM

Well I should start by saying Happy New Year!!! Weve recently relocated to new premises 1 mile from my old base after a sad 15 years with lots of blood, sweat and years at Denne court farm but unfortunatly its now having house built on the premises. But we have been extreamly lucky and honoured to be offered a fantastic yard 1 mile down the road so we are still based in Eastry, it hasnt been used for many years so has been extremly hard work to get in back up and running. But i am very pleased with our progress and as time goes on, there will be more and more improvements. I cannot thank everybody around my for their continued help and support throughout the transistion and we look forward to a very sucessful 2018

Been a very successful busy summer 2017!!

Sorry for the lack of updates had a few laptop troubles, but here are a few pictures insight to the team over the summer months.

Weve had our first shire in for backing that turned into a dressage star, various summer competitons with many results and all the young horses going very well. lots of horses in for backing and training. lots of xcountry clinics and pole clinics.

Now the clipping has started ready for the winter season to commence...


Catch up...

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...

**Sorry for the lack of recent updates since Christmas, we have been so busy i havent had chance to update my website!**

We have had some beautiful young horses in for backing for clients, two have come in for backing and have been completed within 6weeks, i will attach some pictures below of the gorgous customers:  

This is Sherry and Pie, two very well bred, extremely talented rising 4yos that both came in

pretty wild when they arrived and pie was very nervous when he arrived and absolutely petrified of a bridle and he come to gain trust in me and over the weeks he progressed from strenght to strenght and left fully backed and happy:

Murphy in for Sales Livery

Murphy cames to us to be broken a few years ago and then his owner approached me with the sad decision that she needed to sell him due to having a baby, he is a beautiful, smart, talented chap who i really like. He was in on sales livery and now sold to a very nice family home.
