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 promoting Friesians bred in line with the breeding goals of the KFPS mother studbook. Our Friesian Experience days are aimed at those wanting to learn more about these fabulous horses. Experienced riders may have the opportunity to ride, others may wish to try driving a friesian or simply come along just to spend time with them. Once you've been for an experience you may wish to make riding a Friesian a regular experience. 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 photoshoots whether its for brides wishing to have them as part of their special day or for companies wishing to use them to promote their brands. We pride ourselves on delivering the finest of service with magnificent friesian horses suited to a variety of situations. We provide horse drawn carriage rides round Cartmel village in the southern Lake District and from time to time can offer the horses and carriages for weddings.
We offer a variety of accommodation options at the farm. For the die hard friesian enthusiasts we offer the opportunity to spend the night alongside one of our horses in our 'Stable Stays' accommodation. For groups of friends or family we offer our beautiful late 16th/early 17th century farmhouse which accommodates up to 14 adults. When the house is not rented we run a small B&B in a renovated annex of the house. 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. B&B accommodation comprises three double B&B rooms, which can be booked individually. For details of booking a stay at Greenbank Farm holidays 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
