Ever wondered what it’s like to be part of Old Granary Stables? We asked a few of the girls what they thought it was like to be on the team 💙💫

-“ At first glance, Old Granary is an adorable, charming yard with a convenient indoor for the unfortunate English weather. However, the people make it a yard unlike any other. On your best day, you will have people who support you and celebrate with laughs and smiles. And on your worse days, they will lift you up and dust you off for tomorrow. Lulu’s training encourages a positive mindset and builds confidence, which is something every rider needs - no matter your skill level. Horses’ needs are met as well, with various exercises set up each week, lovely turn-outs, a walker, and big stables. This yard truly offers a special experience, filled with life-long friends and valuable lessons to carry with you. Don’t miss out”

-“ Old Granary stables is the place you want to be for too training ! The team environment is so supportive! Each and every person wants everyone to do well, the support doesn’t just happen at home but also at day shows and stay away shows! The training for both horses and riders allows for constant improvements, no problem ever to big or small it will always be overcome!”

-“ Since being at Old Granary Stables, both my mental attitude and riding performance have improved significantly. Lulu and Zoe have helped me through the last year with my A-Levels, keeping Sky in peak fitness when I haven’t been able to ride, whilst keeping me positive and confident. This has helped me to continue competing up to my exams, and am now riding better than ever thanks to Lulu’s tuition. I am very excited for the rest of the year and Lulu’s exciting show schedule!”

With Kate back in America, (💔) we have 2 stables with a private tack room available for a potential new member of the OGS team.

We’re able to offer full training livery that can be arranged for as long or short term packages. With some great shows planned over the next year in the UK and abroad, this would be a super chance for someone to train as part of our team and attend the shows with us. Our current clients are all jumping consistently and bringing home rosettes and placing a at each show.
Vouchers are also available to purchase as gifts for lessons, weeks or months training! 💙

By keeping the yard small but professionally run, this enables us to work hard to ensure every horse and rider on the yard has an individual training and show plan that suits them to benefit each combination, enabling us to achieve the best results possible. 💪🏼🥇

The yard is very quiet with great training facilities including an indoor arena and beautiful countryside hacking.

Being based near the M25, M11 and A12, this makes the yard very accessible from a variety of counties, including London.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any enquires about the yard! 💫💙

End of an era 🥲

It’s been a sad week as we waved goodbye to Kate and her horses. Kate h be as a very exciting future ahead of her, studying at NYU so made the decision to go back go America before university starts. 💫
We have loved having Kate, Eva, Brett and the horses at Old Granary Stables and will be massively missed! 😢
It’s been amazing to be a part of Kate’s journey with the horses, bringing home lots of great results such as winning at Hickstead, placing at international shows in the UK and abroad, and having many more great shows and memories.

Good luck Kate! Stay in touch with the team. Once a Granary Girl, always a Granary Girl! 💙💫
