We hope you enjoy our ‘Past Horses’ video below

All our Ex racers are either re-trained and rehomed from here or found genuine  homes where they can be correctly re-schooled and lead an active  and useful life – some excelling in  competitive disciplines like eventing, showing or point to pointing, others happy to enjoy hacking round the countryside. We are very proud of our re-homing record…and although  not all of the horses who have left us are on here-  its a very good selection! If you have a horse who doesn’t feature  pleases send us some up to date photos, we love to hear about them. Some of our more recent ones that have left are awaiting photos and this will be updated on our ex racers page.

Where it all began…

The beginning…What a start! Without a previous Point to Point runner to his name, Lancashire born Philip (son of well-known Greyhound trainer Geoff Kirby) ended the 2007 season as Britain’s leading Hunter Chase Trainer, beating the likes of Jonjo and Paul Nicholls, and all with just 4 horses. 2 of these had never jumped a steeplechase fence on a racecourse before! Below is the horse who put him on the map, ‘Waking Ned’ who went on to be joint top scoring Hunter Chaser in 2007 – he had only ever won 1 handicap hurdle in Ireland before Phil bought him. In 2007 he ran in the Christies Foxhunters at the Cheltenham Festival (having won all of his 3 races so far that season) and later won the Weatherbys Champion Stayers Hunter Chase at Perth. What a horse!

Philip duly collected the UK Top Hunter Chase Trainer Award at the National P-to-P awards in his first season training – and he swiftly followed this up by applying for his Trainers Licence – gained in December 2007. Starting with just 4 horses 9 years ago, the yard now has approximately 52  in full training at any one time, and despite the steady rise in numbers, the attention to detail and unique atmosphere at this happy, relaxed yard hasn’t been compromised.

Life after Racing… We also pride ourselves on our record of re-homing our ex-racehorses and finding the right homes where they can excel in other disciplines. Our Past Horses page is constantly updated as we are sent up to date photos and news of our former horses in training.
