We are in the process of setting up a new yard/ training facility in the scenic Clyde Valley region of South Lanarkshire. There will be 12 internal stables, and a 40 x 60m outdoor arena, with jumps. We also have access to off road hacking, and gallops. We ride and produce horses for all disciplines, mainly showjumping, and also train some of our own racehorses, and point to pointers. We break some young horses and produce them to go on in whatever discipline they are most suited to. Most of our jumping horses we have broken and produced ourselves. Currently we have a mixture of young horses just starting out competing, older more established horses, and racehorses. We have a British Showjumping Accredited Coach who teaches all over Scotland and North England as well as at home. He also has his permit to train racehorses and we have 3 of our own horses in training at any one time.
