Bruce Everall

Bruce is a horseman through and through. From childhood he was a keen rider and competed in show jumping. Although no longer an active rider anymore his passion for show jumping continues, as he now produces showjumpers ridden by his grandchild Bryonie.

Besides his passion for show jumping, Bruce imported horses and ponies from Ireland to sell them all over the world and still now people ask for his advice when buying or breeding a horse. When you are looking for a horse or pony, do not hesitate to call Bruce.

In 1999, Bruce started to breed by himself and the progeny can now be seen successfully competing in show jumping and eventing. Some of the self bred horses are still at Acrecliffe Equestrian Centre competing regularly.

Bruce & Dominic (his son) also builds, services and modifies horse boxes to cater for the individual needs of both horse and rider. If you are looking for a trailer or lorry, call Bruce on 07831 486668.
