Set up initially to produce and sell a small number of quality competition horses,they then branched into running training clinics with the intention of bringing the best riders in the world to Ireland to provide top class affordable training to anyone who wished to avail of it. Lucinda Green,Clayton Fredericks,Blyth Tait and Jock Paget have been involved so far, with new trainers planned for 2015.

Alongside the training clinics, Christa also runs a charity raffle with the prize draw taking place on the day of the clinic. Last year,collective efforts raised €400 for JT McNamara.
