About DG Equine

Dave Guilding and Claire Smith have worked together for over 25 years at Lakestreet. During this time we had Lakestreet Envoy and Lakestreet Louis standing at stud producing Eventers and Hunters.
We now produce horses for sale and have horses in for schooling, from ponies to 17 hh +. Although we are a small team we can provide a more personal service. We are very hands on with lots of experience and dedication within our field.

Dedication in our Field...

Not only do we we produce and sell top quality horses. We also pride ourselves in organising excellent get away trips for those who want to experience traditional England for what it really is, by providing hirelings for hunting all over the South West, such as, The Ledbury, Beaufort, Cotswold hunt, Cotswold Vale Farmers, Berkeley, V.W.H, Heythrop hunts and more. With our knowledge on the best hunts to go with and some of the most luxurious places to stay we can insure your stay is unforgettable.

We have been providing hirelings for over 20 years and boast a strong reputation for having a large range of expertly produced hunter hirelings that have a great deal of experience in the hunting field, not to mention fun rides also, and the Dartmoor Derby is a yearly trip.

Costs vary according to your requirements, so please contact us for prices.


"I have hired many horses over a number of years from Dave. I have always found them beautifully turned out and very well mannered. The horse's that I have hired have been of top quality, able to jump big ditches, hedges and rails. I have had some of my best hunting days ever on Dave's horses. Now i also hire for my 15 year old daughter who wants to jump everything no matter how big! I am 100% confident that the horse I hire will be safe and my child will come home thrilled to bits ."

"I have been arranging hirelings for my guests via Dave Guilding for many years. The horses have never disappointed, they are always nicely turned out and do the job well. Dave is a pleasure to hire from – reliable, flexible, easy to get hold of (and returns calls quickly), willing to travel, and always friendly and good-humoured. He has been able to accommodate a vast range of different riding abilities – from near novices to ex-professional eventers. And he is usually mounted and hunting himself (in his distinctive, antique Patey!) and so is on hand to deal with any problems that arise during the day, or to scoop up fallers and catch loose horses! ."

"I Have no hesitation in stating that Dave Guilding and his horses are top of the range; to suit all countries and capabilities. If you are lucky enough to have Dave with you on the day as well, then you will share the company of a great horseman and countryman."
