Livery & Training
Wix Hill Livery Stables, Leatherhead, Surrey
Wix Hill is a family run yard. We are always available to help or here for advice if needed. Our aim is for happy horses and happy liveries. We want everyone to feel welcome in the yard, feel able to ask questions or for help, feel able to do their own thing with their own horse, to be confident that the yard can deal with any emergency and confident in all of us always. We know that we have that yard. Our liveries are confident in us and we have not had one horse arrive that has not settled in the first day and remained really happy here. We are a professional yard BUT we are also a family run yard with a great team of staff. Every member of staff has either taken BHS exams or/and the top end of Pony Club exams. Confident knowledgeable staff are very important to the smooth running of a yard.
Dressage Stud Yard
Armada Stud, North Wiltshire
As a fledgling Dressage Stud we aim to breed top class dressage horses for sale to the amateur and professional market. We use only graded mares with carefully selected stallions from around Europe who will complement each other. We aim to breed the dam line which is so important, not just focussing on the stallion. We are supporters of line breeding where one or more ancestors occur more than once in the pedigree which means the strongest DNA will shine through giving a better chance of the foal making their mark as a top dressage horse in the dressage world.
Not only are our current mares graded but they are also out successfully competing on the dressage circuit proving that they can not only produce but also perform well in the dressage arenas. We strive to provide the market with future dressage stars combining both movement, conformation and temperament. Upholding our reputation as a leading Dressage Stud, we only offer the highest quality Dressage Horses for Sale.
