I started to ride at 3 and have spent all my life around horses and ponies. On the day I was born my Grandmother gave me a New Forest filly born on the same day so I started very young!! As a child I hunted, ponyclubbed, showjumped, evented and showed ponies, in our house it was impossible not to! I followed the family tradition and bred New Forest ponies but had always really had a soft spot for coloured horses having had one as a fantastic kids pony. I started my stud in 85 and have stood several Thoroughbred stallions which i have put to coloured cob mares over the years producing many coloured sports/show horses, a few of which are shown on the front page of this site. I also bred some top class New Forest ponies, Moortown Firethorn was 2nd in the workers at Hoys in the late 90's. In the early 90's I went to Poland and imported warmbloods and bred several top class show hunters. Coloureds have always been my first love and I now concentrate on them, breeding a selection of Traditional Cobs as well as the finer types. Moortown Frilly being the most successful to date, winning everywhere including HOYs and the Royal International where she was Reserve Supreme in 2011!! In 2015 Moortown Temptation won the Large Plaited Ridden Coloured Title at Hoys particularly pleasing as she was out of a homebred mare!! They are all carefully bred for conformation, movement, and above all temperament.
