How Kings Sedgemoor Equestrian Centre Started In 2011
Purchased in 2008 the 8 acre site was originally an intensive pig farm. It required great vision and investment by Jon, Charlotte and Julian Warman to transform the site into one of the leading outdoor equestrian centres in Somerset. With a lot of hard work, long hours and some very supportive friends, professionals and advisors, Kings Sedgemoor Equestrian Centre became a reality in July 2012.
