With horse stables and a dressage arena right in front of the house, Dr Doris Westhoff and her husband Dr Patrick Frenchick have fulfilled a dream – living with horses American style.
White Hill Stud is based in the North of England, in the beautiful and romantic Ribble Valley in Lancashire. It is a new state-of-the-art purpose built breeding facility owned by family Whittaker. The stunning design of the facility comes from the pen of Jennifer's husband and was built according to the wishes of the family.
Gut Rosenhof is located to the south west of Munich, embedded in the wonderful landscape of the Alpine foothills. At Anja Beran’s equestrian centre, classical horsemanship is a true passion. The stables, indoor and outdoor riding arenas and the gardens have been designed to make horses and their riders feel completely at home.
Valerie Charpantier, producer of the luxury sparkling wine Pierre Moncuit, has fulfilled her dream of running her own dressage and breeding facility in the Champagne area of France.
The facility can accommodate 24 horses in generously dimensioned stables. The Hanoverian brood mares and their foals have moved into the four large pens. The facility is rounded off by the house, indoor riding arena, lungeing arena and additional grazing areas.
Emma Blundell has built a chic new stable facility on her parent's farm to the north of the city of York.
This independent young British lady was not born into an equestrian family. However, her parents allowed her and her sister to have the riding lessons they longed for at a local riding school. The shy attempts of a 7-year-old developed into a tremendous passion and her profession.
Jamie Gornall has created a small paradise for himself and his horses in the county of York in the north of England.
The British show-jumping champion has once more settled in his homeland after riding in Germany for many years. He was trained by Janne Friederike Meyer, Ludger Beerbaum and Rolf Göran Bengtsson. Di Lampert and John Whittaker also influenced his equestrian career. Today Jamie Gornell is a successfully international rider.
Dream horse stables have now been erected in the Netherlands. A private show jumping and stud farm that could not be more appealing is currently under construction in the south of the Netherlands.
This project was great fun for all involved. As the owner knew exactly what he wanted for his horses, he built a beautiful, generously dimensioned and horse-friendly riding centre with great sensitivity and aesthetic sense. Centuries-old bricks and roof tiles were used with great attention to detail and now exude a sense of history at the new facility.

After securing the Amazons vice-championship with her successful horse Flying Boy, she continued her winning streak with the 9-year-old chestnut mare Alice in Balve, winning the championship title in the show jumping class.
(Fraunberg) A great deal has happened this year at the Birkenhof stud farm. The barn has been renovated and a horsewalker was installed.
The Birkenhof stud farm, located in a secluded setting near Fraunberg in Bavaria, is a beautiful place to breed and train horses. Peace, a relaxed atmosphere, a very well-tended environment and a committed team offer equestrian training and sport at a very high level.
