Faunbank Stables is a horse centred livery, training and therapy yard. We provide live in training and therapy for long or short term stays. We are also available to visit your horse in his or her own environment for consultation or regular training and / or teaching. We also offer a variety of educational workshops and training days on various topics. We take a holistic approach and cater to each horse or ponies' individual needs. We take in horses with all manner of problems or training difficulties, anxiety, aggression and fear issues. Youngsters, for pre-backing ground work, backing and bringing on. And horses that just need bringing back into work, fittening or require retraining for a new career. (Retraining racehorses is a speciality). No project is too big or too small. Owner Anna Alderson, BHS registered Stage 3 coach in complete horsemanship and qualified equine massage and Myofascial Release practitioner, has over 25 years experience working in equine rehabilitation with troubled and difficult horses. Including plenty of experience in both competition and racing industries. We use a combination of traditional and natural horsemanship methods. Combined with equine massage and bodywork, corrective shoeing and herbal therapy. We have an on-site Zoopharmacognist, Sophie Xi-Zeta who is experienced at working with both horses emotional and physical needs. Sophie also trains owners/carers in Zoopharmacognisy, herbal choices and foraging for horses.
