As from March, Shaun will be based at the very impressive and elite Kilbees Farm, in Ascot with state-of-the-art facilities, including 4 arenas superbly surfaced. This yard really has it all! There is a full-size indoor arena, with a gorgeous viewing gallery both on the one short side and long side, and another full-size dressage arena outdoors complete with white boards and markers. The other 2 arenas are kitted out with poles for pole work/jumping and mobile xc jumps. Inky is certainly going to have such variation in his work on a weekly basis! An all-weather gallop track going around 10 acres of land will certainly help with fitness work. There is also a saltwater treadmill being built.
Shaun will be able to teach from this little piece of heaven and will also be looking for any owners who would like to have their horses with a Grand Prix rider based at one of the best yards in the UK. Shaun will be offering training and competition livery at Kilbees Farm for owners who would like to be in it for the long haul and to enjoy the journey. If this is something that is of interest to you please do let him know and he will be happy to discuss this further with you. He will continue to do teaching days out at the venues that he already attends.
Shaun is a big believer in investment in one’s own skills and as such he will be doing his BDCC Level 3 qualification which starts in May at the Unicorn Centre in Stow-on-the-Wold with a view to pass on his improved knowledge to both his current and future clients. Life is a constant journey of learning for us all!
