Mistico places emphasis on the continual training of our grooms as a vital and possibly the most significant part of our team, ensuring our horses are happy, healthy and correctly cared for. Many of our grooms have been trained in-house and we strive to ensure their continued growth and education with the intent of having them with us for many years to come. In return we receive their utmost loyalty. We respectfully request that our grooms are not approached with the intention of offering them alternative employment.


Our paddocks although large at the moment are in the throes of been redesigned, fully grassed and shaded. We will be creating smaller individual paddocks for the competition horses, still maintain our herd paddocks as well as allowing for slightly larger paddocks for those wishing for their own horses to be out together. Our paddock times are 8am to 3pm for the horses and will remain as such unless clients request different times.
We will keep you up to date on our progress via Facebook.
