It’s a simple and effective process that has worked for over 30 years of business.

It’s a step by step process, as follows…

HAVE A LOOK ON OUR WEBSITE,
Instagram/Social Media – if you would like to come and view our horses just send us a message or give us a call to book in, along with your criteria.

UPON ARRIVAL
We show you around our yard and all of the horses to meet your criteria over the stable doors.

LOOSE SCHOOL
From there, anything that catches your eye we will bring out and stand up before showing them loose in our indoor arena. Here you can see them move and jump.

CHOOSING YOUR FAVOURITES
After the opportunity to see the type, movement and jump we tack up the horses you would like to see ridden.

LOOSE SCHOOL WITH TACK
We then loose school the horses you would like to see ridden. We do this with every horse as they are young, green and aren’t in regular work.

OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THEM RIDDEN
Once loose schooled one of our riders will ride the horses for you to see.

YOUR TURN TO RIDE
Following this, you will be able to ride the horses you have chosen.

BUY
We always ask for a decision at the time and give you plenty of notice about this. We believe if the horse is right for you…you’ll get a feeling!

DEPOSIT
A 10% deposit secures the horse.

If you wish to buy, we complete some paperwork and give you all of the information to move forward.

VETTINGS
Should you wish to vet onsite, we work with a panel of professional vets. You have plenty of practices to choose from. 2stage or a 5stage vetting is welcome.

VETTINGS OFF-SITE
Should you wish to get the horse vetted within your two week exchange, you are welcome to use your own vet.

PICK UP
We ask for vettings and delivery to be done as soon as possible – as you can imagine, we are a very busy yard with limited time. If this is delayed for a certain amount of time we do charge a small livery fee.

ONE WEEK EXCHANGE
For any reason whatsoever, you can bring the horse back and exchange for another of the same value.

UPDATES
We enjoy seeing updates of our horses go on to progress – please feel free to tag us in your Instagram updates!

Customer Reviews

☘️Sold to Leonie Johnson a year ago as a five year old…

”Hiya, I said I would send an update to you about the grey I brought a year or so ago from you guys. Bally (as we called him) really is amazing in every way. We have backed and brought him on slowly and he has really thrown himself into everything I ask of him. I’m super excited to show off his potential in the showjumping world when lockdown is over. Can’t thank you guys enough again!”☘️

☘️Sold to Sophia Mitchell a month ago as a 5 year old…

”Hi, he is really good and completely at home! We have been doing lots of lunge work and riding to build him up and he has taken to everything really well, I have my first lesson on him today so hopefully can continue to progress further!”☘️
