Equestrian Excellence In Salwick
A Duchy tenant on the Salwick Estate in Lancashire is establishing a reputation as a centre of excellence for all things equestrian. Forrest Sport Horses offers horse breeding, schooling, veterinary support and livery packages to a wide range of clients across the North of England.
After moving into Pepper Hill Farm just north of Preston in 2014, co-owners Georgina Cook and Rebecca Melling immediately began transforming the holding, creating purpose-built stable blocks, tack rooms, a full range of show and hunter jumps, summer and winter arenas and adjoining fields. CCTV cameras throughout the yard provide the highest levels of security and the team are now installing a hot shower room and heat lamps which will be operational from September 2017.
To celebrate their achievements to date, Georgina and Rebecca are holding an Open Day for invited guests on 2nd September and inviting those present to tour the facilities for themselves.
“We have worked really hard to create a centre here which is second to none,” said Georgina. “Quality has been our watchword. Our horses come from only the best breeding lines, our facilities are brand new and purpose-built and our staff are trained to the highest professional standards. This is a beautiful yard in a lovely part of the country – our horses (and their owners) deserve only the very best and that’s what we try to give them.”
Rebecca Melling has been involved in horse breeding from an early age and by her mid-teens was both competing and handling top stallions at some of the UK’s leading professional stud yards. She has experience in breaking, schooling and training young horses for every discipline. Georgina Cook combines a personal passion for horses with extensive commercial experience and business success. They have been in partnership together for 17 years, after co-founding Forrest Sport Horses in 2000.
Forrest Sport Horses is located at Pepper Hill Farm, Roseacre Lane on the Duchy’s Salwick Estate near Preston. The farm has been part of the Duchy since 1945.
