Chapelstyle Equestrian is a friendly, family run livery, schooling and breaking yard situated in north Sheffield, accessible to Barnsley and on the edge of the Peak District in the beautiful rural village of Midhopestones. The business is run by Julie Firth who has over 25 years of professional experience in breaking, schooling and caring for horses. Chapelstyle also holds events and shows for novice riders as well as more experienced riders. Julie has competed in many spheres of equitation and regularly rides with the Rockwood and Barlow hunt.
Livery, Schooling & Breaking
Julie believes in working closely with owners to ensure horse and rider partnerships are happy ones:
"Often the decisions an owner has to make about their horses are difficult and it's sometimes unclear about what to do or what to try. At Chapelstyle we take time to understand each horse and rider. It's not a one way service - it's important to listen to owners so that together we better understand the needs and talents of each horse we care for and work with" Julie Firth, Business owner
Chapelstyle Equestrian offers livery stables in large barns that provide good ventilation, drainage and visibility. Horses who don't like being alone will be happy in the generous boxes which allow them to see the other horses while being secure within their own box. We like our horses to be happy and owners to be involved in supporting each other. Read more about our services and the views of our customers by clicking on this link or using the About Us tab above
We like to put on events that build the confidence of riders. In the summer Friday night jumping has proved very popular over the years. Special events for younger riders such as fancy dress events and trips to the sea side (taking the ponies!) are equally as popular.
