The yard is made up of American style barns. They are very light and have good air circulation as well as being spacious. They are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. All stables have automatic water fillers.
We have in total about 105 stables in about 8 different yards. Some of the yards have earth bottomed stables which seem to work wonders on horses with leg troubles.
There are also two six horse horse walkers on the premises that are used all year round. These are undercover so the horses can be exercised whatever the weather.
We have a 7f dog leg all weather gallop on the premises. We also have three grass gallops - a 7f round gallop, a 7f dog leg gallop and a 5f straight. We use the gallops depending on the weather and the workload of the horses.
We exercise many of the horses in our numerous lunge pits as well to give the horses variation in their work load and type of work. We have recently built an indoor ride which is prooving an invaluable facility for breaking. It also gets used by the older horses when they first come back into work after their winter break and in periods of bad weather.
All of our horses are turned out in the paddocks daily after exercise. They are out for about an hour and also go out in the afternoon throughout the summer. This relieves the boredom of standing in the stables.
We have three horse boxes of our own, two, four stallers and a two staller, which are constantly on the road enabling us to keep our transport costs to a minimum.
