Pre-Training at Mickley Stud

We do all our breaking and exercising at our satellite yard where we have the use of a grass gallop, a horse walker, and a network of quiet country lanes so we can prepare the horses to a high level of fitness before joining their trainers.

Periodically, we also transport the horses a short distance - around 3 miles - to an All Weather Polytrack 6 furlong gallop, with a steady incline, where we can put some extra stamina work into them and prepare them for what to expect when they enter or return to full training.

Or training and preparation team, Steve Brookshaw, Sarah Taylor and Robbie Jarrett, are all experienced horsemen/woman and have had great success with our Mickley Stud recruits :
