About Us

Brian, originally from a small west coastal town in Scotland has no family links with horses, or racing for that matter but decided after a childhood of watching racing and having a few bets on Saturdays that this was the industry destined for him to be in. After finishing school at 16 he was straight to the Briitsh Racing School in Newmarket and from there he has never looked back. Several years ago he made the move to Dorset, Brian took out his 'permit' in August 2011 along with his partner Daisy Hitchins, who owned the horses and have had a great deal of success along the way, having had a personal best season last year both on the flat and NH we have already started well with a winner under each code already!

Tall Trees itself has been developed massively over the last few years from a small stable with no facilities to a state of the art training facility that has everything to offer. The progression still continues as we are about to start the building of another 16 box barn and further facilities to take us to 52 stables. When a new horse arrives we take time, care and attention to establish what the horse needs and enjoys to do his very best on the racetrack. Nothing is spared for any of the horses here and all of them love their work and enjoy life!
