A few members of the Millbry Hill team have been fortunate enough to attend the Saracen “Feeding the Performance Horse Day” at Carl Hester’s yard, and we thought it would be great to have a catch up with them to find out what it was all about…!

, Just a mile from our Richmond Store, the riverside walk from Easby Abby to Richmond Castle is popular both with locals and those travelling from further afield. This gentle route takes in two of our best historic landmarks, making it not only a pleasant dog walk, but can be a great family day out too. Covering just over a mile, this walk takes around 35 minutes to complete, and is one of our Richmond Store staff’s favourite strolls.
As most of us know life with horses has many ups and downs and I am always amazed by how many ups and downs us horse owners can actually have… When I got asked if I would like to join the Millbry Hill team as a supported rider I was obviously elated. Although I have a few horses (hoping that my other half Steve doesn’t realise just how many bays we actually own), I am still very much an amateur rider so it was great to be asked to be... Read More
If 10 Downing Street think they are busy preparing for an election they should come and spend some time in the horse trials office! The photocopier is whirring, the laminator is getting hotter and hotter and the ever expanding list of things to do seems to be getting longer and longer. There was no such thing as a bank holiday this week for the team at the horse trials, as the event site started taking shape. The tradestand village was meticulously marked out so ensure all tradestands know where they are... Read More
With a relaxed Easter now feeling like a dim and distant memory, it is full steam ahead to the first of Millbry Hill Richmond’s British Eventing Horse Trials. The team are hoping that the stress, long hours and hard graft might shift a few pounds put on with the over indulgence of too many Easter eggs!! The team behind the horse trials is small but perfectly formed! Everyone has their roles and expectations with the previous months work coming in fits and starts depending of the different responsibilities. However, it... Read More
By George how times have changed… Millbry Hill Jones here. Thought I’d put pen to paper once again, although writing these days rarely calls for pen or paper. It’s something I’m not quite sure I’ll ever get used to, but then I’ve seen many changes in my life, none more so than this time of year. I know it seems hard to imagine but at the start of the 1900s Christmas was little more than another date on the calendar. Indeed I recall that for many it didn’t even warrant... Read More
STAFF and customers at Millbry Hill raised more than £2,400 for Macmillan Cancer Support after they joined forces to stage a fashion show. The event was the brainchild of Liz Jones, Marcia Sanderson and Christine Swiers. Liz is a member of the Jones’ family, owners of Millbry Hill, and Marcia and Christine were competitors in Ride of their Lives at Macmillan Race Day at York – the oldest and largest charity event of its kind in the UK. Race day features a full card of professional racing alongside charity lunches,... Read More
