Welcome to Silverwood Equestrian
Silverwood Equestrian was established March 2014, starting as a small house plus paddocks and arena, owning only a few horses to start. Silverwood Equestrian was named after a family backstory and aimed to continue the family dream on owning a equestrian centre, adopting, training and completing Silverwood top horses in English disciplines Our goal and aim is to adopt, breed, train and complete on top skilled horses to claim victory over our competitors. We dont just train our horses for competitions, we connect, bond and do bonding exercises to get to know our horses, their skills and their personally

Silverwood Newest Additions!
Only 17 days into the new year and Silverwood Equestrian has welcome two new foals into their family; TJS/SWE Miracle (chestnut one) and TJS/SWE Venus (grey one), making them the first two foals of the year, these foals were suppose to be due in October 2018 during the Spring season making these a very late birth arrival. First time TJS Brizzy was checked over by our local vet, she was only due to have one foal, the second time, we found a second one, but was told there was highly chance the second one wasn't going to survive (which was TJS/SWE Miracle). When it past the due date, the whole facility and the team was worry that TJS Brizzy would have lost her foals or not survive, mainly due to the pressure the foals were giving her. She was keep in the stalls since October 2018, with regular visits by the vet and her partner; TJS Majestic. When the foals arrived late last night, and the first one arrive. The cheeky filly was ready to stand up, she was very hungry and wanted to play without realizing there still one more foal to come. The second one arrive with vet on site, the small colt wasn't moving for about 5 minutes and didn't have a beat, was nearly told he didn't survive until his head started to move, which is the reason his name is Miracle. A miracle foal that wasn't suppose to survive but did. It the afternoon the next day, TJS Brizzy and TJS Majestic are in the top fields with the foals, all healthy and still having a close eye on them <3 <3
Our Friesian TJS Bella and TJS Chesterfield were also due to have a foal; a little filly in November 2018 but due to issues, TJS Bella lose her foal during the birth

Your facilities are just gorgeous! You are an amazing designer. I really love that fifth picture in your facilities post and your barn stall design (picture 1 in the horses thread). Last two photos of jumping are great too

Facility #2 Construction
Construction of facility #2 is nearly finished with only the show jumping arena and few extra pastures to go, maybe a cross country track as well, then it will be open for the public, our horses and staff. This is the first facility that has a riding hall with the facility, the other facilities will/have a open planned arena (Half open with a roof and fencing).
Facility #3 will be the last facility that gets construction with plans of how the new facility will look, we like to keep the facility similar to our old facility #3 (shown in a few post prior) but we want the bigger land
