We are passionate about racehorses and tailoring bespoke retraining programmes for them as they make the move from The Sport of Kings to shine as Kings of The Show Ring.
The wellbeing and care of your horse is key whilst with us – from our yard here in rural Gloucestershire we offer a safe, trusting and relaxed environment with fabulous facilities. We are ideally situated for attending all of the country’s best shows.
Clare is a firm believer in that trust is essential when producing horses and that this is very much a two way relationship on which a strong foundation is based. It is very important to her that she plays a personal part in the day to day routine of each horse to fully understand their individual requirements.
All the horses follow a varied routine combining daily turnout with riding out, schooling, clinics and polework/jumping. All this in a calm yet stimulating atmosphere makes for happy horses performing to the best of their ability.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure every horse is given the opportunity to follow a specialist training plan to ensure they go on to successfully fulfil another career once their racing days are over.
