Frequently Asked Questions

We currently have 13 staff horses, 12 thoroughbreds and 1 who thinks he is a thoroughbred.

The staff horses are mostly ex-racehorses from both steeplechasing and flat racing, or from an eventing background. We look for:

  1. Soundness - will need to withstand hard work in all ground conditions.
  2. Jumping ability - will need to jump extremely well to keep up with hounds.
  3. Mental attitude - the transition from racing or eventing can be difficult.

We work hard to make our horses up to be good staff horses, and they contribute a great deal to the success of our hunt.
