We are passionate about horses and spending our days working with them is a dream come true. This passion is reflected in the regular feedback we receive from our clients.
Marlene Garfield-Davies and Woody
I came to Headmore 4 years ago with my tricky young dressage horse. It was my first horse, and with the help of Sarah and Alice I was able to make the most of a horse that would have otherwise been far too much for an amateur to handle. In the space of 2 years they helped me produce my horse from Novice to Advanced Medium. When my horse was injured and I had to make the sad decision to have him put to sleep, they were not only there for advice and a shoulder to cry on, but also helped me find a new and perfect young horse – which, naturally, is now also in livery at Headmore. I cannot speak highly enough of this place. It is set in beautiful countryside, the horses are extremely well looked after by very experienced professionals, the facilities are great and the atmosphere at the yard is very friendly and relaxed – no dressage divas to be found here despite the fact that the yard is frequented by some of the best riders in the country!

I have kept horses at Headmore Stud for over 17 years. They have always been cared for to the highest standards and all as individuals. The yard is very friendly and professionally run with excellent facilities. My 15 year old mare, who I bought from Sarah as a week old foal is very happy there and I’m sure she wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
Caroline Dibden – Kelly and Finn
I had a mid-life crisis aged 40, and decided to learn to ride, and thank goodness I ended up at Headmore Stud 16 years ago. I had bought an entirely unsuitable horse, which Sarah took in her stride. Thankfully, they were able to lend me a more sensible horse, teach me to ride, and help me move on from my first disaster, until with their help, I finally found and bought lovely Kelly, a Connemara cross dressage mare. Alice competed Kelly for me, while I had all of the pleasure of watching them winning, and none of the stress. Twelve years later, I still have Kelly and her son, Finn – a gorgeous dun born to a surrogate mare after embryo transfer. I cannot emphasise enough how welcome they have always made me feel, despite my lack of knowledge, and nothing is ever too much trouble. I cannot conceive of ever moving my horses anywhere else.
