We know that it’s the people you work with who can make the biggest difference. That’s why you’re in good hands with our team.
Our horses are Gelderlander/KWPN Dutch warmblood and Hungarian Lippizaner warmblood geldings. We love them to bits and each one is a different character and an individual member of our team. We like to keep them turned out as much as possible for their health and fitness so they get lots of time to play, roll, graze and just to be horses! This can make it more of an effort to get them to the high standards of turnout we require, but its worth the extra work for relaxed, mentally stimulated boys.
