A Little history about Martin & Mandy.

Martin moved with his parents to Leyland Court Farm in 1966 where the equestrian business was started, it became B.H.S. approved in 1968, the business evolved from a riding school to all types of livery including Hunting Livery.

Martin has been riding from 2 years of age, starting with all Pony Club activities, Hunting with the Berkeley Fox Hounds for many years, (now has his Farmers Hunt Buttons). Went point to point racing but unfortunately struggled with his weight. Competed at show jumping, cross country and later on he started ODE, competed up to Novice level on his mare Huntsham Hornet, he had to stop competitive riding due to an neck injury,(not from riding).

Mandy  rode from a young age, when she left school, trained at Leyland Court and passed her B.H.S.A.I. in 1980. She became head girl at Leyland Court shortly after and then caught the eye of the bosses son and got married in 1985 and took over Leyland Court with Martin from his parents. Then started competing at British Dressage on her horse Two Tone. She also did Cross country events and  also Hunted with the Berkeley Fox Hounds.

They expanded Leyland Court from a Riding School and Livery yard to a Facility Centre where clubs and individuals could hire a large Cross Country Course with over 100 fences, a Derby Show Jumping Arena and 3 All Weather Arenas, they also expanded the Livery side of the business and Looked after 36 horses on various Livery packages. 

They sold Leyland Court in 2014 and are now enjoying semi retirement in Somerset, but horses are still in their blood so decided to look after a handful of horses again. They have extensively modernised Holcombe Farm and brought it in to the 21st century and are now able to offer 5* livery for your horse.

Holcombe Farm is located in Fitzhead, in the Somerset countryside.
