Dedicated to the retraining of ex-racehorses, ensuring they go on to have happy new careers when they leave the racetrack.
The wellbeing and care of your horse are key whilst with us – from our yard here in rural Gloucestershire we offer a safe, trusting and relaxed environment with fabulous facilities. We are ideally situated for attending all of the country’s best shows and venues.
We are firm believers that trust is essential when producing horses and that this is very much a two-way relationship on which a strong foundation is based. It is very important to Clare that she plays a personal part in the day to day routine of each horse to fully understand their individual requirements.
All the horses follow a varied routine combining daily turnout with riding out, schooling, clinics, and polework/jumping. All this in a calm yet stimulating atmosphere makes for happy horses performing to the best of their ability.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure every horse is given the opportunity to follow a specialist training plan to ensure they go on to successfully fulfill another career once their racing days are over.
Having been involved with horses since childhood, I now specialise in ex-racehorses. I have worked with the retraining of racehorses for 9 years. I am passionate and dedicated to ensuring that each horse goes on to achieve its potential and is happy in a new career.
The horses I have retrained have gone on to achieve success in all RoR (Retraining of Racehorses) classes as well as many open showing classes at county level. These include Hunters Weights, Riding Horses, Hacks, Ladies Hunters, Ladies Show Horse, Working Show Horse, and Working Hunter.
I have been successful in qualifying for HOYS for several years now. I have qualified different horses in the following classes – R2R (Racehorse to Riding Horse), Lightweight Hunter, Large Riding Horse, Ladies Hunter, and Ladies Show Horse.
I have also been successful in other major events:-
- 2016 Supreme Champion Retrained Racehorse, Aintree National Show
- 2017 Reserve Champion, Aintree National Show
- 2018 Reserve Supreme of Show, RoR National Championships
I am also on the RoR judges panel for both ride and conformation. I have judged at many county shows including: Hertfordshire, Kent, Royal County of Berkshire, Royal Cornwall, Gorey in Ireland, and the RoR National Championship Show at Aintree. I have also judged internationally in New Zealand at Beyond the Barriers NZ.
