Hivron has been in my family
for over 200 years. It was used as an extension to the family's Welsh Mountain
Pony stud, at the adjacent farm just across the valley. The stud no longer exists, but the tradition and passion for
horses has been carried on through myself and our family.
After breaking in local horses, bringing on youngsters and competing, at
22 years old I took up an opportunity to spend 9 months in Tuscany, Italy, where I was responsible for breaking in Maremana
stallions and mares to produce them for a show jumping career. A great experience, which developed my knowledge in communicating
with horses, it was great fun and great for the tan!
On returning home, I took up the position of running a family eventing yard comprising of up to 15 horses, which I did for
7 years, before getting married in 2000 to Andy. Andy works independantly from HHH, but plays an important part in the
general land and building maintenance. We now own and live on the property.
Kirsty (12) and Emma (10) attend the Teme Valley Pony Club and enjoy taking
part in local tetrathlons, rallies and competitions on their ponies Scooby and Kandy. They regularly help around
the stables having found it an enjoyable way of earning pocket money!!
