without our wonderful horses.
All of our horses bar one have been bought untrained, and trained personally by
Most have been rescued from slaughter having been deemed dangerous and unrideable.
After time and patience they are rehabilited and enjoy performing in the Team
We mainly use Spanish, Welsh breeds.
The well-being and quality of life of these amazing animals is paramount, they work hard so we make sure they get to play and rest too.
Their teeth and backs are regularly checked and frequent visits from

in Spain before she came to
Look at her now!
in Spain with his Mum
Not the best photograph in the world but it does show his personality. Since being with us he has developed a passion for pedestal work as you can see in this picture even when we are out for a hack in the woods he likes to sqqqueeze in some practice on a tree stump!
Harrison, another of our horses that has responded well to Amys' Consequential Horsemanship technique. He didnt just buck he rodeoed!!! Dumping his rider was his main aim in life.......and he had perfected it!
Now he is Barrel Racing and Trick Riding and performing in our Shows throughout the country and his Apaloosa spots make him perfect for our Western Show
India was the worst case of starvation Amy had ever seen. She had been abandoned in Spain with her 3 month old foal, she had no food and her foal at foot was feeding from her. India was literally wasting away!
Amy actually cried when she received the photographs of India and her foal Indio.
She was giving her foal everything and Amy began to worry that she might not make the journey back to the UK.
It was arranged the India and her foal would travel without a partition in the lorry to allow them to lie down and that it would take an extra 2 days to get to the UK so that they had longer rest periods.
Once back in the UK and with Blazing Saddles the TLC started. India is now thriving and Amy has even backed her now and she has started hacking her out! She is a trusting, genuine fun mare and somehow has retained a trust in humans!
Indio...the baby of the team!. Although suffering from malnutritionmal India had given her foal everything. Right from the point he arrived in the UK he has been wonderful. We have kept him entire and his manners are perfect!, This little man is awesome, he was garroted in Spain and had bad scaring under his mane and it tore his esophagus and when he eats the food leaks from into his neck causing a permanent leaking abscess. On top of this he has spent 7 months of his 11 months with his back leg in plaster which has to be changed twice a week......how this little man has remained the positive, happy little thing that he is amazes us.
Fingers crossed he is over the worst. Watch out for this one ........we think he is going to be something special!!!!!
