AboutHyndshawlands Farm was purchased in April 2000 and until this time it was used as a working farm for cattle and sheep. A careful planned programme of changes started more or less straight away. Our interest is in the equestrian world, not only our own but the care of other people's equines also. To this end, one shed has been converted to house 18 horses or ponies in comfortable loose boxes.
Dorothy StillI have a wealth of experience in the care of horses having had them for most of my life. I have taken the time to sit some BHS exams in the care of equines and whilst this gives me a certificate I feel that there is no substitute for practical experience and to this end I have given myself the title of 'Chief Mucker Outer'. Before this yard I had a very successful yard on the outskirts of Edinburgh and before that I kept my horses in other livery yards, so I do know what is needed to make owners happy.
Aside from the equestrian experience that we have here, we also have a wealth of experience in the business world with a focus on customer satisfaction.
I have competed in most equestrian activities including show jumping, dressage, eventing, working hunters, showing and hunting. I have had varying degrees of success in all. Breeding sport horses is one of our passions and have embarked on a breeding programme using our own mares and quality sport horse stallions.
