Owner Riders

OWNER RIDERS WELCOME. I have been training and riding my own pointers for more years than I would like to admit - with lots of tumbles but quite a few winners as well. Now my husband (Doug Harkin) and I have just moved to a purpose built yard with probably the best training facilities in the country. We have a 6 furlong all weather uphill gallop (waxed sand and rubber) which never freezes, an all weather 8 furlong circular gallop (also sand and rubber) A beautiful 8 furlong grass gallop with an uphill finish, an all-weather menage, and a selection of schooling fences including regulation fences.
Having enjoyed my time as an owner rider so much I would very much love to train for other owner riders where we can all share in the buzz and excitement of getting into the winners enclosure or just getting home safely. The 'apres racing' is also taken very seriously with an extremely good drinks cabinet for the end of the day.
We will be organising a weekly schooling session for those that are interested with 'past masters' like the legendary Rowan Cope to give advice and take the pi**!
We also specialise in breaking in young horses and have some promising and well bred youngsters for lease or to sell.
We have 5 of our own horses in training but have 6 spare stables for the 2009 season. We are situated just off the M40 near Banbury with easy access. Visitors are welcome.
