Black Horses Ltd in Cartmel

Welcome to Black Horses Ltd, a family business dedicated to Friesian horses. Based in the Lake District, we provide our Friesians for a range of activities either at our farm or further afield.

We are passionate about the breed and are committed to our Friesian breeding and training program using only top class mare lines and approved KFPS Friesian stallions. Our Friesian Experience days are aimed at those wanting to learn more about these fabulous horses and visitors will have the opportunity to ride and/or drive a friesian. For those just wanting to experience riding the friesians we have a wide variety of hacking and one of our most popular options is to take one of our horses down to the beach for something a bit faster!

Our horses are also available for weddings and special occasions in the North West of England and Cumbria and we pride ourselves on delivering the finest of service with magnificent carriages. We also provide horse drawn carriage rides round Cartmel village in the southern Lake District.

We offer B&B accommodation at the farm in a rennovated annex of our beautiful late 16th/early 17th century farmhouse. Greenbank Farm stands in 70 acres of grazing land interspersed with small areas of ancient woodland. The property sits in a prominent elevated position boasting one of the best views of the beautiful Cartmel Valley and picturesque Cartmel village. Accommodation comprises two double B&B rooms, which can be booked individually. For details of booking a stay at Greenbank Farm B&B visit our separate website: www.greenbankfarmholidays.co.uk 

We work very closely with talented local animal photographer, Sandy Kitching, the majority of whose photos appear on our website. Sandy can be booked to discreetly capture your time with our horses. You can view her work at www.sandykitching.co.uk
