    If you browse the images along the top of the web pages you will find an image of four horse working on their Quadrille,they are some of our display team.In this one we have a Lipizzaner /Lusitano, a Lusitano,a Welsh cross and a cob,all work well to music and are ridden in an empathetic encouraging way.
