....about us
Derek has lived in France for the last 17 years and has a passion for horses and the countryside


I was born in a little village called Musbury between Axminster and Seaton in Devon.  My Grandfather had a farm just down the road and I spent every possible moment there.  My Grandfather ploughed using a shire horse which is my first memory of horses.  An Uncle also farmed a few miles away and had 2 horses, a hunter Lorna and a pony named Pixie.  My cousins had riding lessons and rode but I was unable to and was insanely jealous of them. If ever I was missing my parents knew I would be in the stables with the horses.  I remember being taken to Dartmoor for days out and the highlight of my day would be seeing the wild ponies there.
