Sales preparation and horses taken to sell privately on behalf of clients
Sunday, 03 July 2011 00:21

We take horse to sell on behalf of clients who do not have the time, facilities or expertise to sell themselves or who simply do not want to sell the horse them selves for emotional reasons. We take the horse for a minimum of one week before advertising it, to ensure that we have tried the horse in all situations prior potential purchasers doing so. We handle the whole process from writing and booking advertising to viewing, and vetting. We endeavour to sell your horse to the right home where it will be settled and happy. It is our policy to keep clients fully informed at all stages.

 
Specialised breaking and schooling for all disciplines.

We take a great deal of time and trouble to break young horses so that they are confident and have a sound and secure start, providing them with good  foundations to continue their training and become successful in any discipline or a safe and sensible ride for a pleasure rider. We consider the needs of the person who will be riding the horse and tailor our training to their requirements. We have started horses who have gone on to be very successful  in eventing, show jumping, racing, endurance and endurance racing, dressage and showing.

Sarah is a very successful Point to Point trainer having trained numerous Point to Point and Hunter Chase winners. Many of these horses have been written off by other trainers due to physical or temperament problems. These horses have benefited greatly from the individual care and attention we give to all horses in our care.

We take great pride in the exceptionally high standard of turn out we achieve with our and Point to Pointers, winning many best turned out prizes.

We can do initial fittening / roadwork at competitive rates, saving owners costs and ensuring that the horse arrives at the trainers yard in tip top condition and ready to start fast work.
