About Us

Experienced Trainers, Perfect Setting, Top Facilities

Established in 2011, we have grown from a 9-acre smallholding with no facilities to a 60-acre farm with fabulous facilities in which to rehabilitate and retrain these former racehorses. We pride ourselves in matching the right horse and the right human and situation. We do this on a permanent loan basis, therefore safeguarding the horse's future.
