Western House Stables, situated near the quiet village of Melsonby is home to the trainer and Bloodstock Agent Alan Swinbank.
Alan has been involved with horses all his life, having had horses in training with the late Arthur Stephenson and training point to pointers before taking out a full licence at Thorndale Farm in 2001. With many successes and over 700 winners later, he has built a new training complex at Western House Stables that provides excellent training facilities for horses and a safe working environment for staff.
Dreams are made here and the most successful horse trained is Collier Hill, who holds the record for the most prize money won by a gelding – over 2 million pounds.
Alan purchased Collier Hill, as an unraced 3 year old and from meagre beginning winning a N.H. Bumper race at Catterick he went on to take some of the worlds richest races, Collier won 15 races in total, six of them being Group races including three Group 1’s, the Canadian Pacific International, Hong Kong Vase and the Irish St Ledger and was placed on 16 occasions including in 4 Group 1 races and a Group 3.
He was truly an international traveller who took his owner around the world. He is currently retired at Western House Stables, spending his days in the paddocks hopefully passing on all his knowledge to his companions who share the paddocks with him.
He was a horse that everyone dreams of owning and we would like to share that experience again with new owners who would like to come along for some great racing experiences.
We have both National Hunt and Flat horses for sale, and offer full ownership, syndicates or Racing Partnerships. We offer some great opportunities for you to become involved in racing at all levels.
We offer the very best, so please take a tour of the website and give us a call!
