Our policy is to try to match riders to horses and we will not knowingly sell anyone an unsuitable horse. To that end we encourage would-
Due to insurance problems we do not allow horses to go on loan prior to purchase however we aim to give new owners as much support as possible in settling their new horse into their home or in the future training of the horse. We offer a full training and backup service for horses and riders.
This page contains a selection of the horses that are currently available. All of the homebred horses have been correctly wormed and fed since birth and we can provide details of the worming regime for each horse, giving you confidence that the horse you buy should not die early due to incorrect or incomplete worming during the early years.
We back the horses at four and give them a basic training in stop, start and steer. This includes training the horses to respond correctly to a bit in their mouths. As with many other trainers we initially train the horses to respond to a headcollar or halter when they are first ridden. However we then progress to riding with a bit in their mouths. We do not believe that the horse's education as a riding horse is complete until their mouths have been trained to respond confidently to light pressure from a snaffle bit.
The horses are trained and developed using the principles of classical training, including Equine Learning Theory and the principles of Classical and Operant Conditioning. This means that particular attention is paid to the development of their topline and carrying abilities, while also ensuring that the horses truly understand and develop the expected response to the rider’s cues -
In the interest of both the horse and rider, we will only sell horses under 5 years to experienced owners who have had prior experience of bringing on young horses. If you are interested in younger horses please phone to discuss what might suit you.
