This video may interest you if you have been considering ownership at whatever level – we cater for shares as small as 2.5% up to 100% sole ownership.

And below is our most recent ‘Past Horses’ video of some special four legged friends who have left hoof prints on our hearts.

We take great pride in finding happy and loving homes for horses who have been in our care when the time comes for them to retire from racing. Time is taken to find them the right homes and we love following their journeys whichever walk of life they choose, from happy hacking to competing at high level competitions. It’s incredible to see how versatile these athletes are and so satisfying to watch them thrive in a life after racing.
