Robbie Wilson and her horses

Robbie has grown up with horses and has worked in horse breaking for many years. She trains no more than 4 or 5 at a time as she likes to spend as much time with them as possible. Clients are currently being turned down because she is in such demand.  Previous to having the ménage built, she found it very difficult to train her horses and hiring additional facilities just wasn’t feasible.  Robbie was hiring a riding school 20 minutes away, she now finds that having her own ménage to advertise and train her horses is unbelievable.


On visiting Cnwch Farm which is situated in a beautiful location in Llanbister, I found Robbie to be a very professional and friendly person. Her knowledge and experience with horses is vast.  The stables and ménage are of a high standard and the horses Robbie schools are very well behaved and are of very good quality.  She would like to add a couple more stables in the future to increase business. Having the menage built has been more than she expected it to be and couldn’t have done it to the standard it is now thanks to GLASU. The ménage has helped for schooling; jumping and dressage.  I asked Robbie if there was anything that she would have done differently, she said ‘’it would be that I would have just made the menage slightly bigger but it wasn’t possible due to the space available, but I’m more than happy with what I have’’.  Robbie says she found GLASU to be helpful and would apply for another grant in the future.  We hope that Robbie’s equine business continues to flourish and we wish her luck for future enterprises.
