Louise was born here in the farmhouse. She grew up on the farm so knows every piece of the land and buildings really well. She moved away as an adult to work in various roles in the racing industry and returned to take over the family farm in 2017 when her father became unwell.
The creation of this equestrian centre is a project close to Louise's heart as it was the last project she worked on with her late father (Gordon Boon , “GB”). He dearly wanted to see horses back in the farm buildings and on the land. GB Equestrian Centre is his legacy.
After project managing the creation of the equestrian centre Louise initially leased out the yard, however she has now teamed up with Ali Wakelin to create and manage the yard of her father's dreams.
