Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

We would like to wish all our clients, old and new, a very merry Christmas and Happy and successful new year.

2014 has been a fantastic year for SFE, the yard has really found its feet for being the hub of all things equestrian. Our livery service is as popular as ever with many waiting clients. We have continued to build on the training and clinic days we provide and these are as busy as ever. 2014 has also seen our own very successful Dressage Competitions which have been held monthly.

Rolex and I have progressed our training and our competition record has also been on the up, we have qualified for this Winter Regionals and hoping to progress up the levels in 2015.

Many of my liveries have also had a very successful competitive year, Alice, Tess, Otto and Rolex are all qualified. Opus has done amazingly well at the Iberian Breed Show wiping the floor in most classes. And many of my other liveries have reached personal goals of their own, so a huge well done to all my clients for all they do with their own ponies.

A big thank you is needed to my fantastic staff force, we have the best group of girls who work very hard for all our horses and we are always grateful of all they do.

2015 is going to be a bigger and better year I hope, I have lots of plans and ideas so watch this space.

We celebrated 2014 with our Xmas do on Saturday and it was a brilliant party with lots of dancing, singing and laughing, us horsey folk sure know how to party!

Thank you for the continued support and on going business.

Best wishes,

Esther and Leighton xx

Stephen Clarke returned to Shaw Farm!

What a fantastic day we all had when the guru of dressage that is Stephen Clarke when he revisited us this month.

Stephens style of training is totally different and he is a man of few words, however those few words are bound to teach you a thing or too!!

We had a full clinic with him, along with a large waiting list. Each and every rider on the day came away very satisfied and full of excitement.

Stephen will be back with us again soon, I will post dates on here as soon as we have something organised.

Fun in the sun!

Well so far we are having a lovely summer in the Pennines. Our horses are all enjoying long spells of turnout daily and the evening riding is just fantastic at this time of year.

The yard has been a bustle of activity recently with many riders and their horses out competing successfully, we have welcomed a couple of new liveries over the past few weeks who seem to be loving life at Shaw Farm.

Katie Amos and myself ran a very successful Dressage to Music Clinic which proved extremely popular, so anyone who fancies making their pony dance then look no further, between us we can coordinate a fantastic floor plan based on your horses strengths and compose a unique music routine. Contact Esther for further details.

SFE’s Summer Dressage series is going really well with huge entries each month and lots of success from our own liveries. It is also great to see so many of our riders improving each month.

We still run regular training clinics for both flatwork and jumping and our monthly Show Jumping event is as popular as ever.

Rolex and I have started our BD campaign in June, so far he has done me proud gaining scores of 66%, 68%, 69% and even a 70%. I am very excited about this horses future, keep checking out this page to keep up to date on our progress.

More posts to follow, Esther.

Dancing ponies are coming to Shaw Farm

We are excited to announce we are holding a Dressage to Music Clinic at our yard.

Throughout our Dressage Series we have seen a keen interest in the Music element to Dressage however many people feel intimidated to put together some music and design a floor plan. Well worry no more, we will do it all for you!

Myself and Katie Amos, both active BD Riders will work closely together to produce some fantastic music to match your horses tempo and your style, we will also design a floor plan to best show off your ponies.

Within the price you will receive a one to one session, 2 cd’s of your individual music, electronic version of the music, a printed floor plan and reduced entry to your first FSM class at SFE.

Check out our calendar page for further information.
