Introducing Your Guides – by Lisa Gregory

I am very lucky here at the trekking centre to have a dedicated yard team who really love all my horses and always have their best interests at heart. My yard manager, Sonia Aston, heads the team, and working with her are Bethan Gould, Leah Dodd and Ellie Jones. We have already heard from Sonia […]

Pony Fun – by Lisa Gregory

I can’t believe that we are already into the second month of 2020 and we are about to start our special programme of activities for our young riders. We have a popular programme of pony fun for every school holiday and, as February brings half term, of course, we will kick off next week. Pony […]

Tyri – by Lisa Gregory

It’s time to choose another Horse of the Week and, as it’s my turn, I am opting for our beautiful Tyri. I know this strikingly marked big boy is a great favourite with many of you, so he deserves to be in the spotlight. Tyri I bought Tyri in August 2018. My yard manager, Sonia, […]

Introducing Sonia – by Lisa Gregory

It might seem strange to introduce you to people the regular riders among you already know very well, but my hard-working staff here at the trekking centre are so dedicated to the well-being of both our horses and our clients that I think it is important to recognise their dedication.

Introducing Karen – by Lisa Gregory

In a couple of my recent blogs, I have been introducing you to key members of my team here at the trekking centre. This time, it is the turn of Karen Hudson, and she really needs no introduction as many of you already know her – she is our British Horse Society (BHS) instructor and […]

My Review of 2019 – by Lisa Gregory

At this time of the year I enjoy looking back at the past 12 months, and I am always full of anticipation for the 12 months ahead. But this time there is extra excitement because the new decade brings with it a very special event. The year 2020 is our silver anniversary here at the […]

Bistro Anniversary – by Lisa Gregory

I can hardly believe that in just a few weeks it will be four years since the diggers moved in and I saw my lifelong dream coming true. It was January when construction started on my indoor arena and beautiful visitors’ lodge, and we lived with the mud and disruption until the doors finally opened […]
