If horses could choose….(video added)
Where they wanted to live and be trained we suspect most of them would want to be at Green Oaks… When the sun is shining its a horse paradise and the turnout is amazing… we thought you might like to see some of our horses at rest as well as at work.

Its not just the horses who were relaxing this evening, Phil had a rest before he went and harrowed the soon to be ‘mare and foal’ field before his dinner, he is seen here with his dog and his bow top!
We also had a late walk round the horses who as usual were happy to see us and we even caught a few having a nap..
