Kelly has been riding since she was a small child - and we still have her first pony (Little Miss Nancy).

Pictured here riding her sister's horse Bracken Madison Square, she has been riding her whole life with only a short break to have her daughter Brooke who is now 2. She has already achieved level 2 of her HNC in Horse Management and is now working through level 3.

Kelly enjoys teaching both adults and children, breaking and schooling horses - especially 'challenging' ones, and showjumping. Oh - and she spends her lunch hour each day training racehorses over hurdles for a neighbour! Any racing tips Kelly? 'Yeh 2. Cling on for dear life and stay in front so you don't get mud in your eyes!' OK - will bear that in mind!!

"This pair have won 6 races out of 8 in the past 4 years"

Alex rides Tip Toe Tyson each August at Irvine's Marymass heavy horse races. This pair have won 6 races out of 8 in the past 4 years.

Alex works full time as a facilities manager with a local company. He is responsible for designing and constructing the riding centre and will also be responsible for all the maintenance work. He will ride other horses but his favourite horse is Tyson.

This is Susie Speirs who is our Saturday instructor and her talents are far too numerous to mention.

Susie enjoys teaching pupils of all ages and at all levels but especially loves dressage and cross country.

She is pictured here with her star pony pupil Wee Marti who she broke to harness for us last year.

I am Cathie and my husband Alex and I own Greenacres. I have always had a deep passion for horses so to be opening our own riding centre is a dream come true as I love to be surrounded by horses! I had a pony as a child and have now owned several horses just for pleasure for about the past 17 years. Greenacres is our "hobby" at present as Alex and I both work full time. I am an Occupational Health Nurse and also have qualifications in Health & Safety management. I am responsible for our website so if anyone has any suggestions for improvement please do let me know.
