Carl's Yard

Introducing the great team who give all the horses the very best care and attention and manage the behind the scenes running of the yard, competition preparation and administration. Their support is vital to me both at home and away at competitions. Left to right: Jack Stanley, Lucy Scudamore, Claudine Bichard, Michelle Sabga-Aboud, Scott Williams.


The peace and tranquillity of the traditional red brick yard is only broken by the calls of the peacocks, guinea fowl and chickens who, alongside the horses, call this home. Across the stream are the paddocks and fields and behind the stables are the arena and indoor school. The quiet lanes around the yard are perfect for relaxed hacking on days off from training. The area around the school is a hive of activity during the day but as evening descends the only sound is the contented munching of the horses; the birds have gone to roost and all is quiet until morning breaks on another busy day.
