Charlotte Dujardin Returns to Shaw Farm Equestrian!!!

We cannot express our excitement enough, we have been waiting to welcome Charlotte back to our newly upgraded facility for quite some time and we have been fortunate to secure a weekend clinic with Britain’s Leading Lady.

Not only is she Double Olympic Champion and European Champion but she’s also Britain’s most successful Dressage rider to ever come out of this country.

We are hopeful to secure more dates with Charlotte over the coming months.

The clinic is already full so watch this space for more information.

Please contact Esther for more information.

Liveries Success!

Our Liveries have been storming ahead just recently which is always fantastic for us to see!

We have 2 of our liveries off to the Winter Dressage Regionals for Novice Restricted and also the Novice Freestyle to Music, huge well done to Katie Amos and her super talented gelding Otto, and to Karen Burns and the amazing 21 year old Mary who puts many of our younger ponies to shame!!


Haydn and Armani are also doing brilliantly well on the eventing circuit, they have only just started out and keep coming home with improved scores on each trip, there is a very exciting future ahead for them.

Helen Kettleborough and her fabulous new Stallion Opus are also proving to be tough competition on the Iberian circuit with many wins to their name, Helen has recently purchased Opus so their success is set to continue and get ever more exciting in the months to come.

We also had 8 of us competing at PRC’s dressage competition in August and all 3 classes were won by one of the SFE team, everybody performed really well and it was a superb effort from all at the yard.

Well done to all of my Liveries and lets hope the success continues.


Rare vacancies available at the yard from 1st September.

Why not let us take away the struggle of winter, you can enjoy the pleasures of horses and allow us to take on all the care and attention, while being on livery with us you can ride 365 days a year if you wish by enjoying the splendour of our Indoor Arena.

Charlotte Dujardin Visit!

We are still on a high after our extremely successful clinic with Britains leading dressage lady, Charlotte Dujardin. The weekend was fantastic, with everyone from spectators to lesson participants and all the guests at the question and answer evening having a super time.

We even managed a write up in BHS mag, Todmorden News, Evening Courier and Yorkshire Post! Not every day that happens for a humble livery yard.

We are excited with the chance of booking regular clinics with Charlotte once our indoor is up and running! Watch this space!!!

The British Horse Society – ‘Highly Commended’ Grading.

The British Horse Society has introduced a new grading system for approving Livery Yards and Riding Schools, they now assess us on individual areas.
We have worked very hard to ensure we are bringing our clients the very best standard of care and facilities that also run alongside the expectations of the BHS.

We are very please to announce that we have been awarded the ‘Highly Commended‘ grading in many of the categories, some of which are:
Customer care, Stabling, Riding arenas and Show Jumps. We are very pleased with this achievement and we are continuing with the hard work to ensure we stay top of our game.

Thank you to all who have helped make SFL such a success.
