Sales preparation on behalf of clients
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 themselves 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 as well as many pleasure horses who their owners simply enjoy hacking and have varied from Sports Horses to Shire Horses.
Pre training for racehorses and Midseason refresher breaks.
We offer a pre training service for horses destined to go to professional racehorse trainers.
We can do initial fitness / roadwork at competitive rates, saving owners costs and ensuring that the horse arrives at the trainer’s yard in tip top condition and ready to start fast work. We also take horses who may be stale mid season and would benefit from freshening up with a change of scenery and a different regime.
Holiday/short term liveries
Short term liveries, for example if the owner is on holiday or suffering with illness and cannot care for the horse. This can be on a full livery basis with or without exercising.
We are situated 3 miles from the Berkeley Hunt Kennels and we are also within easy distance of the Beaufort and Curre and Llangibby hunts. Our hunters are kept fit and turned out to the highest standard.
