Welcome to Model Farm Equestrian!
Model Farm offers a friendly and professional service within equestrianism. We are a family run business with over 40 years of experience, offering a number of equine services for any type of horse/pony and rider, any age or level. We are located in a quiet, traditional village on the outskirts of Liverpool.
Owners and founders Peter and Micky Borthwick have had experience with horses most of their lives. As a child, Peter successfully competed in eventing, including Junior European Trails. As a teenager, he moved to Ireland for a number of years working for the legendary show jumper Iris Kellet. On return to England, he went to work for Carmen Lanni, where Micky also worked. Micky is also a fully qualified instructor. They have both competed successfully in dressage, show jumping, eventing, showing and working hunter, as well as having plenty of experience on the hunting field.
Their daughter, Sammy has also competed successfully in all disciplines but is now presuming a career in Showjumping. Producing Young Horses and competing upto 1.40 level. She has worked for international show jumpers Kieth Shore and Robert Bevis and spent some time working in Belgium for showjumping dealer Peter Lauwers. Their son, Michael, also competed at a young age but is now perusing a different career.
Although we specialise in the breaking and schooling of young horses, we offer many different services and this year (2012) we are looking forward to the arrival of the first foals of our newly founded showjump/event stud. We hope to successfully breed top class potential international horses.
