KWPN Beauties!

Earlier this year we decided to begin our search for a talented 3 year old to join the SFE team to develop for dressage with the prospect of selling before 2017 young horse classes.

We scoured the internet and started our hunt only to be quite underwhelmed at the quality available at a realistic price, we then struck on a lovely gelding we wanted, unfortunately he miserably failed the vet costing us a lot of money and disappointment.

So, our search took us to Holland!! And what a fabulous and exhilarating experience it was. Over the two days there we were presented with nearly 20 horses, all of which matched our spec, all with super breeding, movement and temperaments! We were very excited!! The yards we visited were fantastic, all very professional, the standard at which the horses were turned out was nothing less than world class and certainly showed us brits how things should be done! If nothing else, we learnt a vast amount from the trip!

We are excited to announce the purchase of not one but two stunning 3 year olds, both very different stamps but in their own right both tremendous equines!

Ivan – 3 year old – Franziscus x Jazz

Impact – 3 year old – Don Tango x Bentley

Both horses are very lightly backed and passed rigorous 5 stage vetting’s with full x-rays.

We are very excited about these prospects, please watch this space for further details!!

Well done to Charlotte and Tess!

Charlotte has been on SFE since December and has come such a long way in that time.

Charlotte competed in her first Affiliated BD and won the class with a huge 75%.

We are very proud of this combination and I have no doubt there will be many more successful results.

Well done Charlotte x

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.
