Sarah Chettle – Director

Basheera (Xquisite Design), Lucy & Sarah at the British Arabian Championships 2022

Sarah studied for her degree in Equine Management at Merrist Wood under Kingston University and has used her practical knowledge to have successfully managed two BHS riding schools and livery yards. Sarah has owned and worked with horses all her life and is passionate about them and their welfare. With drive to seek her mark on the industry, she has taken the opportunity in 2016 to establish her own family friendly livery yard and riding school.

Andy Binnersley – Business Manager & Partner

(Yes Andy, I still need a corporate photo, and until I get it, this is it!)

Andy’s career has been in security and safety systems and in 2006 started his own business providing his vision of high-quality installations and a personal service. Andy also has a passion for youth work, volunteering as a street based detached youth worker for Hampshire county council. He is now assisting Larkspur in developing and marketing our business and, at the behest of his pony-mad daughters and the relief of his long-suffering wife, spends a large amount of time running around for us. He and his oldest daughter Alice now own Dougal and Jack.


Alison & Shrimpy!

Alison and her teenage daughter joined us as clients in 2018 and quickly fell in love with Larkspur. Having ridden since she was only 8 years old Alison fit right into our horsey family and joined the office team in October 2020, heroically managing the chaos of a riding school during lockdown with the aid of copious cups of coffee, a big smile and a fresh hairdo. Alison and her daughter Neve are also the proud owners of our very own Shrimpy, beloved in the riding school.
