We are proud to be the first equestrian center in the Cheshire area to be awarded with a three year license as a 5-star establishment for the purpose of hiring out horses.

In 2020 we were proudly made official partners with Hurlingham Clothing. We are delighted to work with this modern and dynamic clothing brand that has continued to support British polo over the past decade.

 In 2020, we were awarded the Sports Tuition Service of the Year in the Manchester & North West prestige awards. This was based on service excellence, industry recognition, employee satisfaction, marketing & branding, ethical practice and customer feedback.
