Please contact Fran on 07970 717093 or email northingtonstudandstables@gmail.com to secure a booking as places do go very quickly.  Plenty of fun to be had learning more about having your own pony as well as improving riding skills and finding out more about  horse husbandry and stable management.

We’re hiring

You may have seen on our Facebook page that our planning application has been successful.  We will be moving to Manor Farm in Itchen Stoke at some point later on this year.  Our new facilities which will be purpose built will include 13 internal stables, 45 x 65 outdoor arena, turnout for liveries and and an indoor arena of 25 x 48 too.  Whilst the building work starts to take shape, we will continue as normal down at the yard in Northington but we’ll keep you updated on how it is all going and when we hope to move.

In the meantime, we’re on the lookout for someone to join our yard.  Are you a hardworking enthusiastic person who can take on stable duties, answer the phone, catch, get in and tack up ponies for our busy riding school and livery yard?  You would need to be able to commit to up to 40 hrs per week.  Transport essential.  Training given if wanted through Sparsholt college.

If you are interested or know someone who might be then please contact Fran on 07970 717093 or email northingtonstudandstables@gmail.com

Pink pink pink

thank you

Our Pink Pony day was a huge success.  We’ve never seen so much pink in the yard!!!  In fact we’re still washing it off some of the ponies!

Thank you to all who came down to The Woolpack in Totford to support us.  Northington Stud and Stables even featured in both The Daily Echo and Hampshire Chronicle.

Tommy and Lucy are thrilled to have been able to raise such a significant amount in memory of their mum, Sue.  We are incredibly grateful and bowled over by your generosity – so far funds of over £1300 have been raised and will be presented to Breast  Cancer Haven next month.

Thanks to the following big donors – we couldn’t have done it without you.  You made sure that plenty of ponies in the yard were adorned with plenty of glitter and paint for such a good cause.
