Beat those Monday blues

Do you fancy a better start to the week? How about a nice relaxing hack round Beacon Hill and Broombriggs Farm? Or perhaps Bradgate Park? If this is something that appeals, then gives a call or send us a text to discuss your specific requirements

Sorry to say goodbye

We are sad to announce that Owen was put to sleep this morning 

He was an amazing pony who has introduced a lot of children to their first time on a horse, their first canter, their first jump and he has looked after each and everyone of them. A lot of people have a soft spot in their hearts for this kind, generous boy, who enjoyed his life and I believe loved us as much as we all loved him 

Most definitely the end of an era 

Owen moved to retirement home

Today Owen joined Hollie, Phoebe, Gus, Lilly, Daisy, Ziggy, Jupiter and the Donkeys at the retirement yard (aka mum’s house!) Initially the plan was to let him enjoy retirement at the yard, as he’s such a popular boy and there’s a lot of people who love to see him.  Unfortunately the wet, muddy conditions are aggravating his muscle injury/illness in his hind legs. At the retirement yard it is much drier and there is stabling should he require it.  Although his huge character will be missed on the yard, I have had to make the decision that is best for Owen and rest assure there will be regular photos and updates as to how he is getting on! 🙂

The rain didn’t stop us!!

All week the schools have been drying out nicely and we’ve been doing lessons, yesterday I contacted all my weekend clients to say that finally we were using the schools and what did it do last night? Torrential rain!! Never mind it didn’t stop us and for the first time this year we did a whole day of lessons and we’re looking forward to another busy day in the schools tomorrow! 🙂

Winter Riding

We may not have an indoor school

And we have mud up to our knees

But does the British weather stop us?

Never! We love riding the GeeGees!! ?

Thank you for sticking with us through the winter period!
