The Stables near Bushes farm in Blandford was established by Marcia Coombs, instructor and owner. Marcia’s knowledge and skills in training have benefitted the stables for more than 40 years. Marcia is involved with various pony clubs, teaches for Clayesmore school, Castle Court School and is well recognised in her local area. Marcia is well known for her eventing and show jumping, her daughter Sophie has had the full benefit of her mothers expertise and now competes successfully all over the country. The Stables also has an entourage of regular faces as they provide D.I.Y liveries, which makes the whole site a fun and sociable yard.


We would like to welcome people of all ages and riding abilities to join in. The Stables is a small family run business and can give you or your children the time they need, to develop ability and confidence. We offer group and private lessons, hacks out and being on the northern fringe of Blandford Forum we have some fantastic rides available right on our doorstep.





We have upgraded our facilities this year with nine new stables being built to replace and add to our horsey accommodation. 

Jonathan has also been creative with the horse shoes opening his Etsy shop making horseshoe gifts out of the horseshoes. Check out his items here.


We now have spaces for full/part livery, schooling, breaking and producing all types and sizes of horse and ponies. Please contact us for more infomation.
