Sarah Williamson set up Midsummer Farm Stables in 1997 with only six stables, growing the company to its current size.

Sarah said: “I now have four employees as well as my husband and 13 year-old daughter helping out. Over the next year, I hope to continue expanding the business and create new jobs. Almost all of the stables are now occupied, so we are already looking at what the next growth project will look like.

“The advice and support Clydesdale Bank, and business development manager James Hart in particular, has provided has been invaluable.”
