We have been buying horses from Gerty for nearly 20 years. Wimbledon Village stables is a wonderful BHS Approved riding school and livery yard in South West London. Our 25 amazing horses and ponies are much admired by everyone who sees them and with the exception of three (Jack, Pod and Minnie) who are homebred, they were all purchased from Gerty Tynan. You can see photos of them on our website and Facebook page and there are videos of them performing in musical rides, horse shows and dressage competitions. Over the years, there have also been numerous other amazing horses who have since gone on to pastures new. Our horses need to be exceptional – they must be 100 per cent in traffic to cope with double decker buses and other London traffic, safe and mannered hacking out, have gentle and willing temperaments to suit all standards of rider and, of course, be completely sound.

I cannot tell you how much pleasure Gerty’s horses have given to so many people; we are so grateful to her and look forward to many more years working together to find perfect horses for our clients.
