Guy has travelled extensively, and considers himself a student of horsemanship and great horseman. Guy has trained and started horses all over the world, including UK, Australia, USA, Poland and New Zealand.
Victoria grew up around horses living on her family’s equestrian centre and riding school in Bradford, West Yorkshire. It was this upbringing that sparked a passion for horses and she spent much of her formative years riding and showing, native ponies, at county shows up and down the country.
It was in 2010 Victoria first met Guy when she retained his help with her Welsh Section C stallion Rembrandt. Fast forward 10 years Rembrandt now belongs to Guy and Victoria’s daughter Summer and is still very much part of the family.
In 2011 victoria joined the business and was instrumental in taking it forward with her hard work, photography skills and social media expertise. She still runs the office and takes care of the day to day running of the yard in addition training and working her own horses.

Charlotte Innes - the horse vet
Dr Charlotte Inness BVSC MRCVS
Charlotte qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Liverpool then worked in Australia, Hong Kong, Staffordshire and finally Yorkshire as an Equine Veterinarian. During this time she has worked with all types of horses from racehorses, brood mares, foals, competition horses and companions. Always having an interest in lameness and poor performance, Chiropractic was appealing as another skill to aid lameness work up and diagnosis.
Having carried out further training in Germany at the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic she decided to incorporate chiropractic more prominently in her veterinary work.
The Horse Vet was established in 2015 to provide a service to treat poor performance in horses, focussing on the musculoskeletal system, using a combination of traditional veterinary medicine, equine chiropractic, equine acupuncture (traditional Chinese and Western approach) and state of the art gait analysis technology.
Outside of work Charlotte enjoys going to the races, playing polo, hunting, walking her energetic German Short Haired Pointer and relaxing when time allows.
