Laris Farm


What a delightful visit to the fabulous Quest RDA Group at Laris Farm. How wonderful to walk the Woodland Sensory Trail and see the various activities that help their riders in so many ways. We look forward to running at the Surrey Half Marathon on behalf of Quest and helping their riders to have the opportunity to experience enjoyment, and to achieve personal goals through participation in sporting and therapeutic equestrian programmes.
What a lovely couple of days it has been. Yesterday was spent coaching my riders at Pigeon House Equestrian which I always love. Thank you Sarah for being amazing with your organising 😘
A fun evening was then had in Windsor with Lorina Waters and my godchildren. I loved going for a run this morning (In the rain) up to the castle, bringing back the good memories of when I lived there…Windsor, not the castle 😝
My day was completed with riding gorgeous horses and coaching some more fabulous people including at Laris Farm and Merrist Wood Arena
A busy rest of the week and very much looking forward to my clinic at Brackenhill Stud on Saturday 🦄❤️

Hello Laris Farm! It’s been nearly 3 years since we bought our gorgeous pony Diesel from Nina so I thought I’d post a few photos to share how well he (and Poppy) are doing. Hope that’s ok as we had such lovely comments when I posted some photos last year. He is adored and much loved 🦄💙
A few update photos of Diesel. I bought him from Nina in August 2017 and since then he has been on beach rides, sponsored rides, been hunting and is a regular Pony Club Member. He has won lots or rosettes for jumping and even the best Easter Bonnet! Here are a few photos from the last 2 years that we have had him. He is very much loved and brings us happiness every day 🦄😘
Please help by filling out my questionnaire into horse owners' opinions on restricted grazing methods (e.g. grazing muzzle, strip grazing):

Hi everyone, I'm doing a Masters at the University of Bristol, carrying out a questionnaire to investigate methods of restricted grazing practised on horses in the UK and horse owners’ opinions on these.

At present we simply do not know what people are doing in terms of restricted grazing and why or the implications for the horses. A survey of this kind has not previously been done and I aim to discover what practices people seem to find most effective. This can then be used to help produce advice for horse owners/carers so that equine welfare can be optimised.

If you either currently or in the past have owned/loaned/shared/cared for a horse, or made a living from working with or managing horses in the UK, I would be very grateful if you could spare some time to take part in my study by completing my online questionnaire (link at the top and bottom of this post).

Further information can be found on the project page:

You must be 18 or over to take part.

Thank you!

So endlessly proud of this pair ❤️Placing in their first ever show! I remember when Sandra first called me to coach a child that had barely started learning to canter, on a green pony that didn’t know how to canter. Now they are positively flying thanks to the hard work and dedication of both and Kara! A huge shout out to who runs for running such a fun, supportive and perfectly set up day! 🥰🥰 💚💛💚

Feeling fresh! 🍃


When the staff at Laris say they brought cake….WTH challenge not accepted .equestrian you are clearly the master!


At Laris we think staff welfare and training is very important. So not only do we eat far to much cake but every Monday the staff and a selection of our school horses get training!


What a beautiful day for the horses to have off! Although with the temperatures we are expecting I’m so glad they have the edges of our woodland to stay cool in once the mid day sun hits! Drink plenty of water folks it’s going to be a hot one 🔥

Meet the Horses


Owned by Paula Mcgiven

Norma is who Norma is. Norma has to be the most relaxed pony on the yard, if she’s in the field, the paddock or the stable Norma is just chilling. Norma will always look after her rider, her handler, and herself, with minimum effort making maximum satisfaction! Norma lives with Bess, but you know, I think Norma’s best friend might actually just be Norma 🥰

Photos from Laris Farm's post 16/07/2023

Could not be prouder of what this combination have achieved so far this year! So many good results but 6th at Barbury today in the worst of weather. Can’t wait to see what more is to come this summer From Amelia and Ash!

Bess aka Brynbach Bess

Owned by Grace Fitz Gibbon, Loaned by Isla Mclaren

Bess, Bessy, Boo…. This horse has many a pet name because she’s so hard not to fall in love with. There is just something about the soul of this pony, not to mention her looks. Bess is a gentle quiet calm soul, but gosh can she turn it on! Bess loves her napping, hacking and chilling in the field. Bess has two best friends, Didi who is her bad influence and Norma who calms her zen! Somehow we missed a flatwork photo of Bessy, or she was so perfect we didn’t want to make the others jealous 🤔.

Misty. Cute as a button with a big personality, Misty instantly wins over most riders, and parents with her general swag. But as soon as you’re on her she’s quiet as a mouse. Misty is quiet, sweet, and quite happy bumbling along at your speed…. Or occasionally a little slower. Most happy when out in the field with her friend, Misty a best friend? …. Everyone!

DB aka Diablo

Owned by Quest RDA

What to say about DB. A beautiful fell pony, who has worked out exactly how much (or little) is needed to put into any activity. Don’t be fooled by his lazy bones, out hacking he’s a different horse completely!

DB loves a cuddle, lives with his best friend Ben and is always impatiently waiting to come in.

We don’t have many photos of Diablo as he had his tooth extracted the week before we had our photos take

Princess Hollie

Owned by Quest RDA Loaned by Grace Fitz Gibbon

Undoubtedly the cleverest pony at Laris. Anyone who’s ridden Hollie can attest to her cheeky personality, she will find all your flaws and exploit them but never with malice. She’s a real charmer and a firm favourite, but don’t be fooled, You have to learn to ride this one! Hollie turns her hand to everything and loves what she does, be it gently looking after the most nervous of riders or Galloping off into the distance with the bravest!

Magic aka Magical Millie

Owned by Quest RDA

Magic is a real favourite with many. Although she can come off a little grouchy people quickly realise this is all an act! Magic is miss reliable hacks, jumps and dressage. Magic could hack all day and all night!

Magic doesn’t have a best friend quite yet, but for now she keeps Oscar and Jack in line down in the big field!

Livery Space Available!

Due to a change of plans we still have space for one working livery to join our team. All our horses school or not are given 5* treatment, top quality feed and year round turnout.

At Laris our horses are fed on TopSpec feeds with their diets being tailored to them by top spec nutritionists. That’s a key reason they are always so shiny and healthy. All of our school horses see Briony The Equine Balance Therapist and our fantastic Saddle fitter Sam Wiltshire a minimum of every 3 months. All horses have an allocated stable and year round turn out!

Check out photos of some of our current team. Quest RDA Group

Jack aka Jack in the Box

Owned by Quest RDA

Jack is a generally happy chap with a relaxed disposition, but at some stage in his life humans haven’t been particularly nice to him. Jack can be a little anxious when you first meet him, or if you are wearing strong perfumes or creams, but when he gets to know you… wow.

Jack is a super cob, he loves jumping, schooling and looking after his rider. He loves a hack although isn’t the bravest, he will follow the others all day. Jack may come across a little standoffish, but what he really loves is a hug!

The sleepiest chap on our yard, Oscar’s likes include sleeping, laying down, eating whilst laying down, and generally taking life at a slower pace, but don’t let this fool you! Oscar can really turn it on. Oscar loves his jumping and is always up for a nice hack be it fast or slow, and he can turn his hand to a nice dressage test… if you’re sure you really mean it. Oscars best friend is Jack, who is a little more on the go, and can frequently be found giving him a work out round the paddock!

Let’s talk honesty. I’ll be honest taking these photos I was going to write a cute caption about decompressing in our own personal wood. But honesty.
Those who know me well know that I have plenty of excuses for why I don’t ride much, and sure they’re mostly valid. Honestly just like so many others I feel unfit, incapable and unworthy. Today I decided to stop making excuses. In the wrong school, with the gate open and the wrong bra I set myself a challenge. Stop focusing on how I look, how she looks, how we look. Just actually get on with it…. But I will admit after interval training using one song walk, one song trot…. I did spend an unbelievable amount of time wandering if bohemian rhapsody does ever end 😅


Hacking this weekend!!!!
This Sunday we have space on two group hacks! Go online to avoid disappointment!!


Some pony building under way at stable club today! A nice relaxing activity on a hot humid day! 🥰🥰
