Brian Ellison Racing

Dual purpose racehorse trainer based a Spring Cottage stables in Malton, North Yorkshire. For Brian it's all about keeping the horses healthy and happy. He believes if they're happy they'll win races.

Spring Cottage Stables dates back over 200 years and was occupied by William Haigh prior to Brian's purchase in August 2000. William had trained from the stables for 25 years and enjoyed a great deal of success. When he arrived, at the yard, there were 25 stables, whuch he has since increased to 110.

The facilities include schooling grounds, 2 furlong canter ring, access to Langton Wold gallops (20 minute walk away) and Highfield gallops (5 minutes away). They also include starting stalls, a Kraft water walker, where up to 5 horses can exercise at any one time, 18 turnout paddocks and a salt therapy room, which reduces the reliance on antibiotics and other medications.

The website includes details of horses in training and those for sale, plus details of ownership options, which include sole ownership, joint ownership or racing partnership, lease a horse rather than purchasing or join a syndicate or racing club, which offer the fun and excitement for a much smaller investment.
