About Us

 

The Old Horse House is a family run business which has been established on Ducks hill Farm Since December 2012.

There has been equestrian links on site since the 1980s; many years ago there was a riding school on the farm which served the local community.   Now days The Old Horse House is your one stop shop for all your horsey needs- we sell all kinds of essentials from hoof picks to Mounting blocks.

We the owners, a husband and wife team, have been around horses for over 30 years with a wealth of knowledge and hands on riding experience between us. My wife is a riding instructor in the past she taught many people to ride confidently from nervous riders to actors who may only have had a week to get up to an acceptable level. Between us we spent many more years breaking and schooling young horses moving on to problematic horses - there is normally a reason why a horse becomes 'a problem' we were engaged to find out exactly why there was a problem and how to resolve it -  we always had a 100% success rate.  We have competed at a high level, shown and produced horses for customers with bespoke requests. We now find ourselves here at the Old Horse House serving the horsey community.  Our aim is that your horse and animals stay happy and healthy with minimum impact on your wallet. The years of experience within the equine world have been the perfect training environment for us.  We can confidently advise our customers on most aspects regarding their mounts. We have extensive nutritional knowledge so are happy to advise on dietary requirements for your beloved equine we also have a hotline to our feed manufacturer’s nutrition advice line which is available in store for our customers. 

Feel free to pick up the phone if you have any questions or requirements - we are always happy to help and it’s always nice to be able to talk to a human being.

The actual shop is cosy and quirky.  It is based in an old stable block - it looks small from the outside but we have loads of equine goodies to keep you and your mount more than happy.  

We have clothing for the adult and child rider in great colours and styles, whether it be for showing, dressage or just messing around at the yard. We also have a great range of horse clothing - many items are on special! Lower than the RRP.

Our product range covers all rider disciplines at very competitive prices. Regular special deals are made available on the web site but hurry these deals sell out fast.
