Breeding winners doesn't just happen.  In any discipline. It takes a horse that has been carefully bred with the right bloodlines to rise to the challenge & from Parents with their own competition record - no matter the discipline.

Arrathorne Sport Horse & Bloodstock ​believe that breeding &/or boarding includes the training of performance horses & that this should start as soon as a foal is born. We pay careful attention to accustomising young horses to the essential life skills (e.g. farrier, vets, loading, clilpping, tying up, plaiting, spook training etc) that they will need after leaving our care to begin the next stage of their journey - whether they are going to a Racehorse Trainer or a new owner for show jumping or showing. We carefully introduce and reinforce those skills through calm quiet positive reinforcement and, although we are mindful of timescales, we never rush a young horse.

​All horses who come to stay with us - no matter how long that may be - receive individual care and horses with us for Pre-Training have individual training plans tailored purely for  them in conjunction with your chosen Trainer's requirements. Ring us now to discuss your needs.
