Horse Matters

All the horses living at Ash Tree Farm are kept as naturally as possible. We are fortunate that the natural meadow grass on the farm does not have to be overgrazed and we allow the resident horses to have as large a run of grass as is possible. No artificial cereal-based feeds are fed and no artificial fertilisers are added to the grassland.

Our horses are unshod and are kept barefoot and trimmed by Ian Whatley
(alt-hoofcaresystems@hotmail.co.uk). In his capacity as a qualified instructor, Ian has run several successful courses at the farm through `The Institute of Applied Equine Podiatry`
(www.appliedequinepodiatry.org) and there more courses planned for the future too.

Jenny is at present half way through her training as an `Equine Herbalist` and wherever possible, is able to treat any minor ailments the horses may develop, herself, herbally.

Growing, drying and preparing herbs for horses here at Ash Tree Farm, will be a natural continuation of Jenny`s horticultural business in the future.

The completion of the outside ménage in 2008 has meant that it is possible for us to `bring on` young horses and also extend the work we do in rehabilitation. At present, Solomon (a handsome 3 year old coloured cob) and Finn (a 6 year old Appaloosa with unique leopard spot markings) are benefiting from this exercise school.
