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.
