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

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.
