Now in her fifth season training, Laura has saddled numerous winners from Maiden Point to Points to Open Hunter Chases. Having grown up with horses- hunting, pointing and eventing, her wealth of experience also includes a spell working in a breaking yard in Australia and for top National Hunt trainer Alan King.
Hackpen Farm is the ideal location for a point to point yard. Tucked away in the heart of the Marlborough Downs its quiet location creates a particularly peaceful atmosphere the result being a yard of very relaxed, happy and healthy horses. A stones throw away from the Barbury Castle racecourse it is also conveniently located for numerous other courses and is also very easily accessible being only 15 minutes from the M4 and only one and a half hours from Central London.
We pride ourselves on our individual approach, and do particularly well with horses with previous problems, whether mental or physical. Being a small yard, horses can receive more focused attention and we tailor a horses training regime to its individual needs. The all weather gallop is hugely beneficial to the horses with previous leg injuries as well as meaning we will rarely miss a days work due to weather. The availability of hacking and various different grass gallops also means we can keep the horses routine varied and interesting and is particularly useful for cheering up sour horses or quietening down the more excitable types.
At Laura Thomas Racing we can guarantee to provide the highest possible level of care and training for your horse and will do everything we can to meet your expectations. We welcome every type of horse from unbroken 3 year old's to soured off veterans and with a variety of services and approaches, we are very flexible and are happy to provide a package that suits you at very competitive rates.
