Many of our clients, who work or who have school/uni in the city like us to school their horses during the week to keep them fit for competition or to keep their schooling/ education at a high level. This service is catered to the individual where we are happy to school our client's horses anywhere from just one day a week that suits them through to five days a week. As we are experienced in breaking in and working with horses with behavioural problems, we have also specialised in offering this service to people who have a difficult horse they are trying to get back on track. Even at just once or twice a week this schooling makes a huge difference for the owners who would otherwise have a horse they would be frightened to work with, giving them peace of mind, a safe supportive environment and a happy confident horse to ride.
Fencing is important to us. We use a combination of post and rail and equifencing outriggers to maximise your horse's safety.
