the Facilties

FacilitiesOur yard is a private competition establishment hosting 15 large airy stables (16ft x 16ft) with rubber matting throughout, including a large wash area and an equine solarium. Here horses can relax before and after work.

StrangfordBased in the drumlins of County Down, we are spoilt with the natural hills for hacking and canter work, and travel to nearby gallops and swimming pool for extra fitness work. In addition to hacking, we have a large 5 horse Monarch Walker which is used for warming up and cooling down.

We are very fortunate to live only 2 minutes hack from the picturesque Simmy Bay, a salt water inlet of Strangford Lough, which serves as our daily spa for the horses after they work. This is a great cooling agent for legs after strenuous exercise and the natural healing properties of the sea for cuts and injuries.

We also use a horse physiotherapist on a regular basis incorporating daily use with Equisage and Magnetic therapy rugs.

We have a large all weather sand/rubber/fibre mix arena (65m x 40m). With a selection of show jumps and portable cross country fences and are close to a selection of excellent cross country schooling venues.

RosieFoxOur head lad Allan Fox leads the team, including long term support member, Rosie McBride. Without their dedication and support our yard would not be complete. There is 24 hours supervision with the back up of yard vet, Howard Whelan who lives 10 minutes away.

DOgsRioNo yard is complete without dogs and we have a pack of them which travel everywhere with us including the resident Black and Tan stud dog, Tatts!!! As of 2013, we have a new stud dog, Rio (pictured right) , who is a son of Tatts , May 2013.
