See_Map Brothers Stuart and Nigel Hollings moved to Blue Slate in 1975. Prior to this they had enjoyed much success in pony showing classes- Nigel won the acclaimed Pony of the Year title with Snailwell Charles in 1972 and they both spent time training with Davina Whiteman who produced their ponies. Nigel met Penny Davies in 1986, she had competed successfully in riding club showing and had trained to BHSAI level, she began to work for the brothers and schooled many horses including Fair Breeze- Riding Horse of the Year with Nigel in 1989.
Penny married Nigel in 1990. Horses are better when they are in a secure environment and they derive security from the handler/rider being in charge and working with them to develop a good relationship where the animal trusts them.
It important that the animal understands why you behave in a certain way towards them.

Company description
I find that most older "problem" horses are misunderstood and therefore with time and patience they will unravel and become more settled and 'normal' individuals. Even though we have a floating population of 28 horses and ponies, they are all treated as individuals. They are in a stable which suits them and we'll change it if they don't settle. Some animals will prefer to be where there is plenty going on whereas others are happier in a quiet corner. We have had animals who won't settle in the field, we would find them a calm friend to go out with and put them in the play pen so that they are near the yard and feel more secure, as they settle we put them in further fields and gradually they relax. We believe that regular turning out is essential to an animal's mental well-being and again will tailor the playing out time to suit each individuals needs.
In conclusion our aim is to produce happy, well-balanced horses and ponies who will work in harmony with their riders.
