Welcome Divina

Welcome to the Ranch a new lady – Divina, with owner Catherine.

She’s rather gorgeous isn’t she?

 

Happy hackers

We have been busy introducing beginners to our horses with our Saddle Up 2 hour experience for first timers.
And taking a lot of children through our fantastic one-to-one learn to ride package called Trot On.
Plus of course taking people out riding and enjoying the company of our many liveries on the trails.
Here you’ll see Nicola, a new rider, taking Ahitan (Arab) out for the first time with Sylvia and Lord.

Rescue horse Brownie

What progress our rescue horse Brownie is making! From fairly ugly duckling to a beautiful fit and bold young lady. She’s got a gleaming coat, bright eyes and mind set on learning. We are loving watching her flourish with time, patience and care.

Here is Sabrina who puts in so much time training her and working with her to build her confidence and knowledge.

Shiny bum! Arab Ahitan

Best hair day

VIDEO : this is new boy Julio having his shoes done by Rory the farrier, and enjoying the refreshing fan wafting through his mane as he does. Straight out of the salon!

Our new girl!

A stunning big mare joined us this week to be brought on and find her a new forever home. She is not only beautiful in colouring but also in nature. Her personality is calm and sweet, she has wonderful paces and is proving to be bomb proof out on a hack. At 164 cm and 8 years old, she is going to make someone the best “horse in a lifetime” when she leaves us.

The 4th amigo

Our 3 grey amigos were joined by a 4th new horse – welcome Julio to the herd. What a super relaxed and capable big gentle giant he is proving to be. Although it’s making it increasingly hard to tell which horse is which in our grey Arab group now… you have to study them hard. But the 3 amigos were very welcoming to the new boy and happy to teach him the boy band moves…

He also met our lovely PIN and PON shetlands and instantly made friends.

Brownie

Our chunky rescue Brownie has been learning slowly about all aspects of stables life, hacking in the great outdoors and how to move well in the school. Here she is with Rebecca being very well behaved on the lunge line, which helps with fitness and flexibility for horses.

Friends reunited

VIDEO : Sophie used to live in Spain and ride here, but she moved back to the UK. These friends were reunited this week when she popped back and came to see us at the Ranch. And of course go on a ride out – here are our two friends reunited (Sophie and Jazmin) chasing up the gallop hill “the stairs”. Who do you think will win, Hechi or Hope?

This is Hope, a 20 year old horse we rescued in a terrible state and who has been lovingly brought back to health mentally and physically, and fitness, by Jazmin. She certainly loves to run and enjoys her new life so much. The sweetest mare and thanks to Jazmin, the most gorgeous tail at the stables!
