Could your horse or pony be the next Larkrigg superstar?

Our ponies have a great life, they don't get worked too hard, have lots of turnout, quiet stable herds and lovely stables to come in to!

If you think your equine could do our job please get in touch - we are always on the lookout for ponies and horses to join the team, ideally they would be over 7, sound and between 11.2hh and 16hh (we will consider exceptions to this though)! They should be able to walk, trot and canter alone and in company in the school in a quiet balanced way. Ability to jump a small course of jumps, hack out and travel well are great but not always necessary! Please get in touch and tell us about them!
