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 after being a successful work rider in some of the biggest flat yards in the country he made the move to Dorset, Brian took out his 'permit' in August 2011 along with his partner Daisy Hitchins, after considerable success were granted a combined licence in early 2015 and have already had much success on the flat with the yard continuing to expand and progress season after season.
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. 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! If you take a look at our page 'What We Do' you will see some fantastic results and it just goes to show what we can offer.
