I work alongside a nice elderly gentleman who keeps his retired ex-racer at Wardhouse. I will have a wee chat with him in the morning. Might be nice to have an ally on a yard
I think I might know the gentleman (and horse) in question - it's a lovely black horse (gelding, I think?). I used to have my share horse at Wardhouse, and then after I got my own, he was on grass livery there for a while.
We're round the corner on a farm now - not an official livery stable, but there's mine and about 11 other horses at the moment (and I think he's looking for more). Fields, stables available, and a small outdoor school. PM me if you're interested
