|Meet the Team|
The NFED is a small family business trading under the name of CK Art - NFED for fellow equestrian enthusiasts. Claire is an established artist specialising in equine - animal art and New Forest scenes. See www.clairekitcher.com
We have been commoners in the past, breeding New Forest ponies under the "Brushwood" prefix & have our own land at Wootton where we keep our horses.
The main NFED office is in our home in the village of Sway in the New Forest, but the site can also be run from our daughters house in Bournemouth, Dorset. As nearly all communication is carried out online, there is no need to keep to office hours.
Everything from the website design, to photography and graphics is carried out in house. This gives a unique personal service, helps to keeps running cost to a minimum and makes the NFED very efficient to run with updates made regularly throughout the day, 365 days a year. Very few sites, if any can match this, one of the reasons why over the years the NFED has become so successful. The cost savings are passed on to the users, giving great value for money to advertisers. Since its launch in 1999 the site has received several awards and was a runner up in the prestigious Hampshire Web Awards 2007 in the interactive category.
The NFED is intended to cover all aspects of horses and riding in the central southern area and we are very keen to promote and help the New Forest and support commoning where ever possible.
We hope you enjoy using the NFED and always welcome your comments and suggestions.
If you appreciate the NFED, the most important thing to do is tell others about it.
