Driving Wells Fargo style I see

How lovely

Fabulous 😍

Mark and Jo have been very busy teaching recently. Individual sessions and some enjoyable short courses. All drivers and horses seeing great improvements. Jo wanted to share her personal favourites from this weekend. Olaf and Chris are not just super cute ponies, we also made some huge improvements with straightness and balance in just two sessions. ... See MoreSee Less

I used to "groom" for a blind friend when she had lessons, with a very experienced instructor, with his own set of reins I might add. She was a rider before she went blind, and had decent "hand" and a good understanding of rhythm so she really enjoyed it and gained a sense of movement and freedom from the experience, even if it was a bit hair-raising for us in the carriage with us sometimes😂

We have been busy teaching and working on three big restoration projects. Thought it would be fun to share some of our Fenix built traditional style carriages instead of the usual restoration and new build pictures. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done as always Mark and Joanna x

Great news

The most recent Fenix restoration to be unveiled today. This magnificent private coach by Barkers was once owned by the 5th Earl of Lonsdale. The Yellow Earl was seen as “Englands greatest sporting gentleman”
The usual detailed Fenix research went into creating the nearest possible match to the original yellow. When we acquired this coach it was not in its original condition or colour. Some structural repairs were needed and the new owner wanted it to return to as close to original as possible.

My family used to restore these magnificent pieces I’m now 55 and I was only a child I remember them rubbing the pieces Down by hand with sandpaper and I believe there was many many coats of pain in the process

Thank you for your care of this Park Drag. My father owned it here in the US for a while. Hats off to your beautiful work.

Well !... I thought all those guests would have applauded !

I would love to learn more about the detailed research that you do prior to do a restoration. Please share the steps you go through, and please share the photos you took of piece prior to restoration

That is awesome Betsy

Looks amazing!

Beautiful. You have performed your usual magic again Mark x

Lovely morning with Somerset Sight and The Fenix Training Trust. 12 blind and partially sighted enjoyed a carriage ride and picnic in the glorious sunshine at Fenix. Zorro and Alex provided the gentlemanly horse power to this beautiful wagonette by Peters (restored here in the Fenix workshops) ... See MoreSee Less
