Karen is back riding with us after some time away from the stables following foot surgery, nothing horse related you’ll be pleased to hear, and all healed!
Congratulations are in order too as she is now engaged to Chris Canner, wedding date set for Oct 2013.
Don’t forget to find us on facebook and twitter for regular news from everyone here at Llanthony.

Our team of old and new faces are working well together and enjoying everyone’s company. See Molly leading a trek on top of Hatterall Hill, riding Sugar.
Not one to be left out, Africa had her foal on the 11th April, also in the evening after coming into the warm barn. Another filly! This time a gorgeous bay and white by my own wonderful stallion Cobalt. This little minx was up and charging about within minutes – a real cheeky monkey!
Following a few sleepless nights on duty in the maternity ward, Chilli foaled on the 6th April at 11pm. A stunning big bay filly by the phenomenal show jumping stallion Vangelis S, who stands at Meadow Stud in Gloucestershire.
Our 2012 season began on March 31st with a great turnout, shame the weather of the previous few weeks could not have carried on a little longer!
