OUR HORSES

In April 2020 we took on Jack from KC Horse Rescue in Herefordshire.  A hunter type who is now 28, he was very underweight when he arrived - the rescue was short of space so he came straight here after his check-ups.  He had come from a riding school which lost its licence; he was kept out over the winter with 25 other horses with no rugs or hard feed and only one bale of hay between them.  We are very proud to be doing our bit to help KC and their wonderful horses. 

Jack is now up to full weight and, retired from being ridden, is doing a little driving which he seems to very much enjoy.  He has been signed over to us and will be here for life.  

Last year purchased Uline du Pré Fleurie, a registered Comtois mare, who is being trained to work on the farm and is also for trained to Western riding.  The Comtois is a very old draught breed from France with very few in the UK as yet.  They are shorter than many draught horses but just as powerful.  Her full name being rather a mouthful, she is known as Ulla (Oola).

It has given him a new lease of life.

Jack really enjoys driving around the local lanes.

But her main job will be working on the farm, for which we are training her.
