My name is Brian Matthews and I am a sixty-nine year old retired businessman with a lifetime’s passion for all things equestrian, having worked my way, as a boy, from riding the milkman’s horse to owning Point to Pointers and Hunter Chasers.
I am an experienced equestrian, presently looking after two horses and a pony. I live in Llandinam with my wife Linda, on a smallholding of about 25 hectares.
The overriding consideration in relocating to such a wonderful part of the world was to enjoy the immediate access to the adjacent hills and Powys bridleways.
The horses we presently keep are a 10 year old Arab/Welsh Cob gelding and a 8 year old Connemara/Thoroughbred mare. Both these horses are about 15.1 h.h. and are quiet to hunt, ride, clip, box and shoe. They are not for sale! They are sure footed, wonderfully strong, forward going types and are ideally suited to our equestrian activities in advancing years and retirement.
I have two daughters, both of whom ride, together with 4 grandchildren, who ride Archie, our very ancient and lovable Welsh grey gelding.
