Monarch Stables in Bliss of London Photo Shoot

Monarch Stables in Bliss of London Photo Shoot at Ingestre Stables.

The historic back drop of Ingestre stables in Staffordshire provided the ideal location for a photo shoot to launch the new range of saddles from Bliss of London.

The original stables date back to 1885 when they were built for the 20 th Earl of Shrewsbury to house his large collection of polo ponies and carriage horses. The building now houses Ingestre Riding Stables owned and run by Tim Downes and Rob Lovatt both Fellows of the British Horse Society.

Ingestre has chosen Monarch Equestrian over a period of several years  to provide up to date stabling that would blend sympathetically  with the historic surroundings, and that could be made to measure to fit into existing buildings.

It is good to see the both models ( human and equine ) enjoying the the photo shoot, check out the Bliss web site for more of these lovely photos some of the amazing horse photos on the photographer, Matthew Seed's web site

Monarch Stables make a wonderful yard at Selston Equestrian

It is great to hear what a difference Monarch Stables have made to  business at Selston Equestrian Centre, who now use the new stables for their full liveries.
Mick Martin tells us that the beautiful yard we can see above together with the lovely surroundings at Selston have certainly helped to attract clients. The Majestic Elizabethan stables provide a lovely courtyard with big airy light boxes, opposite the external doors compliment the yard perfectly .

Selston Equestrian Centre also have an American Barn with Monarch Internals and a Monarch Horse Exerciser, why not check out their web site to see their other facilities and services.
