The Horse comes first. Always. We provide a calm, relaxed natural environment where Horses can truly be themselves and the freedom to express this. Natural herd living in a well managed environment with a focus on barefoot and holistic horse health and ethical training. Yard owner’s own horses aren’t ridden.
Full herd based livery only to ensure our exacting care and welfare standards are always maintained. We offer surfaced tracks all year round plus grass tracks in the summer. We can use these as full track only or Equicentral with access to well maintained natural grazing depending on your horses needs. We have a large lounging yard and barns where the horses are free to come and go as they choose. There are numerous off road tracks with almost direct access from the yard and we have permitted access to private forest tracks across the road. We have a grass schooling area with some agility equipment and resident instructor with 30 years experience in classical in hand and liberty Work who uses +R training.
Our liveries live together as a herd which may be split into smaller groups in order that we can manage your horse’s individual dietary requirements for grass to ensure good health. Home grown meadow forage is available 24/7 365 on our yard and surfaced track system. Daily feed is all natural, forage based and we provide balanced minerals, linseed, brewers yeast and ad lib salt. Horses are encouraged to recreate natural browsing patterns and behaviours via track and Equicentral principles. We harvest rainwater and have natural springs to provide clean free access water. We have a maximum of 12 Horses on 22 acres, plus tracks to ensure enough space and resources. We include worm counts, worming, hoof care, first aid, sun screen and fly spray to ensure every horses well-being is taken care of. We have several open barns and lounging areas, plus an abundance of natural shelter should the horses choose to be out of the weather. All training and handling is via non escalation, shaping and positive reinforcement. Our horses have free choice to participate in sessions. We offer Emmett therapy to keep horses balanced in body and a safe, calm horse centric environment for a balanced mind.
We are absolutely passionate about providing the very best natural environment and lifestyle for our own horses and are lucky enough to be able to share our Haven with a select few liveries.Truly a Haven for Horses (and humans).
