Little Whittington


Little Whittington equestrian combines a varied x-country schooling ground and competition course with a small & friendly DIY livery yard. 

Livery owners have access to all x-country facilities, sand arena and show jumps, horse walker, sand paddock and grass turnout. Schooling and competition livery is available. 

The XC course is available for seasonal private hire, and regular schooling days take place.

Little Whittington is also base for local 2* Event rider, Philippa Nixon. 

Philippa has a strong team of horses from young to 2* Eventer's, including top horse Arctic Cruising.. 

Philippa welcomes horses of all levels, requiring schooling and competition experience. 

21 year old Pip had great success in 2016, winning the Open Pony Club eventing champs on her own Arctic Cruising, a 16.3hh Grey Gelding, and the Scottish Novice championship on Game of Luck, owned by Miss Lauren Chaffey.
