About us 

Heartshore Horses was founded in 2003 by Dawn Oakley-Smith. Our founding principles are to create a place to facilitate the learning and development of both people and horses, and to foster healthy relationships between the two.

We have a herd of 22 well cared for horses and are therefore able to meet the specific needs of individual clients, and offer tailor made sessions according to your requirements be it an afternoon ride or lesson in the arena.

We also offer therapeutic services for horses and people.  We work with children and adults with autism as well as with learning or behavioural difficulties.

We are situated next to Gatcombe Park Estate. Some of our rides take us through Gatcombe, deep into finest Cotswold countryside. Other rides go through nearby villages, woodland and across open common land. We are spoilt for choice.

It's a wonderful open space with the a herd kept on site. There is easy access to some wonderful trails through fields and woodland and an outdoor arena prefect for some one on one lessons.
