The Millhouse Team
Please click on a photo to see a full description of our team members.
Nicola has owned Millhouse Stables for nearly 23 years and treats all her clients (both human & horsey) as extended family. Nicola has experience in most disciplines, although she is the first to admit that dressage is not her forte!
Many of you may recognize Vics, who started her love of horses here many years ago. After completing her apprenticeship and her BHS stages, she is now our Main Instructor. In her spare time she is educating Mena in the world of eventing.
Jodie has been with Millhouse for about 14 years now and teaches for us on a part time basis. Jodie's forte is dressage but she does secretly enjoy a spot of cross country with Millie.
Anna is our newest member to our teaching staff, she has been riding since she was 4 years old & has competed in all disciplines as well as being a member of the pony club.
We believe every yard should have a doubtfire! She is great at fixing, trimming & tittivating! Sharon often covers the yard when we are a man down but most of all she loves making sure the ponies all look smart.
Jake is a great allrounder, he is great for beginners & more experienced children alike. He loves to go on our cross country training days (maybe a little too much)!
Coffee Bean is another one of our rescue ponies. He is a favourite with all the children a true little gem who has taught many to ride here at Millhouse.
Romeo is our pretty little boy, he is a little tricky to ride but once mastered he is great fun!
Aah Toby! Toby is a sweetie, he loves the kids and is great for the smaller adults too. He can be a little spooky at times, usually when he is made to lead the ride (anything to get out of thinking).
Bramble is our little mascot, companion to Brynne he is a firm favourite with the little ones, at 38 years old (we think), he knows his job well, which also means he has a few tricks up his sleeves!
Pie is well on her way to melting a few hearts! She is one of our working liveries who is half way through her ridden education. She is a sassy little mare, who is quick to learn but sometimes struggles knowing what to do with her feet!
Brynn is a very talented little pony. He loves to jump however he can be a wee bit stubborn when it comes to flat work!
Rosie always very quickly finds a place in the kids hearts. She is forward going and loves to jump perfect for our teenagers.
Ebony is very popular with our teenagers, she is the perfect allrounder and particularly excels at jumping.
He is an excellent allrounder and a dream to hack. Blue is loved by adults and kids a like. He can be a little bit slow, but find the right button and he's a pocket rocket.
Lily is a great allrounder, she can turn her hoof to anything and is a particular favourite with the teenagers
Joker is our gentle giant. He is perfect for all abilities and has a trot to die for (even though it is like straddling an armchair!)
Eddie is our latest recruit and it feels like he has been here forever. Loved by everyone is a great allrounder, fantastically forward with the cheekiness that cobs bring.
Bailey is one of our latest editions to the yard and is quickly becoming a favourite of our teenagers. He is very cheeky in the school but an absolute dream out hacking.
Smokey is one of our full liveries, having previously been used in the riding school, he is now living the easy life with his owner Scarlet.
Moon takes every discipline in his stride and is a bit of a cool customer. Jumping is definitely his favourite though x
Betsy bless her is a little special!! She loves everyone and will sit on your feet to stop you moving. A typical labrador she is great with the kids.
Doris is our photogenic lapdog, she is normally found sleeping in the haylage barrow or being carried around by Nicola. Watch your sandwiches when this one is around as she is a sly little madam!
