A sad day.
We have some very sad news.
Our beautiful Diabo was peacefully put to sleep this afternoon. He made it to the grand old age of 28, but his legs could no longer keep up with him.
We first met Diabo when he was a wild five-year-old stallion in Portugal. His utter beauty and immense presence captured us instantly and we fell in love with him, so we went about bringing him back to Turville to start his training. It was evident right from the start that he was something special. The most intelligent of horses, he learnt everything so quickly and his movements were breath taking. As he performed, he appeared to float with grandeur and effortlessness that proved to be unmatchable not only to the innocent eye, but also in competition.
New year catch up.
Well done to Samantha for getting on the World Class Program for 2013-2015. She is currently based at Carl Hesters yard in Gloucestershire so this is a very exciting time for her with access to the best trainers and support team in the world.

Its so lovely to hear of horses we have sold on. Finn was Lauren & Sophies first step to adult showjumping classes.
'Finn has moved to the land of sunshine and oranges and top ranking show jumping!! Can you guess? His new home is in Bradenton, FL where he trains with Brock Clermont of Clermark Equestrian.'
Lucky boy, we hope he continues to do well
