Meet the Team


I'm Sophie, a true Yorkshire roots girl, now living in Northumberland. After finding my love for horses aged two or three, I spent most of my childhood riding my pony on a weekend. Going through a growth spurt at aged 13 and people insisting I got a horse I would grow into, combined with a stubborn streak that I still wanted a whizzy pony, I no longer had a horse. Rest assured, as soon as I finished university in 2007, the search was back on (& this time for a horse!)


Andrew is my husband, and wouldn't know the head from a tail of a horse when I met him... Thankfully he's learnt a little since then. A born & bred 'geordie', Andrew supports me with training at home &, competitions, & all other miscellaneous horsey activties (including tack cleaning - great!!)


Louie is our newest team member - I got Louie January 2015. A 16.1, dapple grey/roan 2011 ISH gelding. He is a smart horse, both in terms of his looks and his mind. So far he has been quick to learn, showing willingness and ability. We look forward to more progress updates on Louie as time goes by.


An exceptionally handsome 17.1, 2003 bay ISH gelding. Having owned Thomas since May 2012, I've learnt a lot & Thomas has really helped my confidence. Very tragically we lost Thomas in October 2014 due to a large, constrictive mass growing around his colon, causing a very severe colic.


We must't forget Harry - our lovely black lab! Harry joins us at the yard & enjoys his walks around the fields - his favourite is nose diving into muddy puddles, or occasionally, bogs! Harry sometimes comes along to competitions depending on the weather... So look out for Andrew being dragged across a warm up by a crazy looking lab!!
