Our horses are family

That’s why we have pictures of most of all the  foals born here from the day and time they are foled. We give them lots of TLC but we also raise them to be athletes, and yes the mares are spoiled by the guesthouse visitors peppermints.

Life After Racing

We believe strongly in our responsibility to them after their racing careers, and spend just as much effort finding the right home for our retirees as a Sport Horse, if possible, or as a family pet as we do in preparing them for sale as a weanling or yearling.

Indeed, our homebred Lord Darby (pictured to right) so took our hearts with his courage and enthusiasm for eventing that we have kept him and with trainer Allie Knowles, of AK Eventing – another of our horses whose career you can follow by subscribing to Lyra’s Blog.
