Meet the team!



Yard Manager and Lead Rider

Brady has been around horses since he was 13, volunteering his weekends and school holidays at a riding school, he continued to follow his passion in the equine world at further and higher education at Sparsholt College. He became part of the team in 2017, and as the chatterbox of the yard, he provides clients with endless entertainment and a fun ride.




Jacqui took the helm in January 2016, she has been working with horses for many years and also runs a successful livery yard in Buckinghamshire. With animal welfare a priority she has overseen a lot of change in Studland ensuring the yard is successful in a time where equestrian businesses are struggling.

Meet the Horses

Maximum Carrying Capacity

Our horses weight limits are set according to the type of terrain ridden on, the ability levels of riders and their body condition/conformation.

We believe it is important to be diligent when it comes to the welfare of our horses as they are what bring so much joy to our customers, therefore we are strict to adhere to our maximum weight limits, and ask for your honesty in this for the sake of our horses, as this is of utmost importance.
