Our Horses are trained by horseman and trainer Marc Lovatt making them ideal horses for lead actors. They are steady with calm temperaments and are trained in weaponry, cavalry charges, jousting and carriage driving and are responsive to the rider (whether novice or advanced). As an added bonus they have also been trained to be patient while waiting on set for minimal unexpected disruptions.
From rearing horses to bowing and lying down, as well as cavalry charges, fire, gunshots, horseback archery, tricks, falls and drags, we can work with you to get the shot that you need whilst maintaining animal welfare and rider safety. Quality horses and professionals to get that realistic shot you want without compromising on welfare standards.
Experienced Riders and Crew
Our team is made up of experienced riders who are working in the filming industry and are regularly performing in live shows across the country. They are available as background riders, riding doubles for actors and professional stunt and trick performers trained in trick riding, horse falls, roman riding, charges, falling and weaponry. Supported by an efficient ground crew including horsemasters, grooms and horse handlers.
Driving Horses, Carriages and Coachmen
Carriages available for hire from small carts and agricultural equipment to Town Coaches and Landaus with coachmen (drivers) and footmen who worked at The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace, so you, your actors and your crew are in safe hands. They are trained to drive singles, pairs and four in hand in Traditional Coachman Style.
Horse Tack and Costume
We have a selection of costume and tack available for immediate hire alongside our horses including Medieval Armour and caparisons, side saddles, victorian bridles, driving harness and 18th Century, Regency and WW1 costume.
