Kris Spin

“In March 2020 I contacted Kerry in relation to rehoming another racehorse having just lost my old ex racer who I’d had for 12yrs. Kerry said she had just the chap for me, and that’s where it all started. 
 
Kris had enjoyed a successful racing career with a number of wins and placings and I was told he was a true gent who would look after me.  He came to me having retired from racing a few weeks prior, and he was luckily dropped off pre covid lockdown.  Kerry dropped him off and when he walked off the lorry I was amazed by how well and happy he looked, he was certainly a stunner who had clearly been well looked after.  Kerry stayed whilst I rode him in my field, I was extremely nervous having only really ridden my previous same horse for so long.  There was no need to be nervous as he was really well behaved. 
 
Over the next few months we got to know each other and he settled on our smallholding in Herefordshire.  We initially spent our time hacking out and getting to know each other.   Within the first 6 months he’d taken part in pole clinics, fun rides and even his first riding club camp.  At camp he had a go at cross country, dressage and show jumping and took everything in his stride, and behaved impeccably.  By the end of the summer he’d completed in his first showing show, where he represented West Mercia Police at the Blue Lights Horse of the Year Show.  He came away with ribbons and we were both pretty chuffed with ourselves.
 
We are now focussing on taking part in our first dressage competition and hopefully in the spring our first show jumping competition as he has one heck of a jump on him.   
 
Kris is a pleasure to own and I am so grateful to Kerry and Richard for allowing Kris to enjoy his retirement with us at home.”

Jayo Time

Jayo Time is currently in the care of one of our staff. Below is some information about his retirement.

“Jayo Time came to me after his racing career and has turned his foot to everything from show jumping to dressage. He adapted to his new lifestyle straight away and settled in well from the beginning. It wasn’t before long until he was out competing and always coming home with rosettes. Throughout his new career he’s has been nothing but a pleasure to train and still continues to be. I hope to continue his retraining and to progress up the levels.”
