Popalbee Stud
Friendly Horses

Our Facilities

We have 3 outdoor, floodlit arenas which are excellently maintained with a quality all weather surface enabling us to continue our lessons all year round. We use the different size arenas to suit our different lesson types.

  • 25 x 35 arena
  • 20 x 40 arena
  • 25 x 50 arena


We have a good variety of well maintained, lightweight jumps. We have a mixture of poles, fillers and planks, thus making us well equipped for both teaching people the art of jumping and progressing the more advanced riders jumping ability.

Liveries and Stud

In addition to the riding school, Mandy's family run business also offer a livery service with both DIY and working liveries and Poplars Farm is also home of the Popalbee Stud. Having kept and retired some of Pip and Chez's first show ponies, they have gone on to breed some quality lead rein and first ridden show ponies, which are currently competing on the national circuit. Most notably; Popalbee Minnie Mouse (Champion Cheshire County 2012 & Champion Midland Counties 2013) and Popalbee Gorgie Porgie, who has just finished a successful season off by being placed 11th at The Horse of The Year Show.
