Naomi Vance-Webb (Meadowbrook PRE Stud) has been involved with horses from a very young age and, more specifically, the PRE (Andalucian) horse since about 1990.
The old saying, “from little acorns.... big oak trees grow” couldn't be more true in this case. An initial purchase of a lovely PRE gelding back in 1990 has led to being one of the premier breeders and producers of the PRE horse in the UK today.
The PRE as a breed has evolved into a horse that can now compete with any other breed of horse in the world, in any discipline. In fact, from his ancient beginnings as a war horse, chosen for his incredible agility, and the ability to “turn on a sixpence”, he has proved himself over and over as versatile, willing, courageous and talented.
More recently the breed has been taking the dressage world by storm and in the last four Olympic Games, bringing outstanding results for a breed that has only been taken seriously at this level since 1996 when EVENTO was the first PRE to represent Spain at an Olympic Games. The results the PRE horse has achieved at International level speak for themselves, as can be seen in the International Breed Results:

Individual 14th place, Team 7th

The purpose of our breeding programme is to produce a horse that is functional in the modern world, combined with the conformation that is worthy of a Show Champion.
