Welcome!

PB Barefoot Rehab and Retirement Paddock Paradise Livery is a family run Paddock Paradise livery situated in Staffordshire, Midlands UK. We specifically cater to and specialise in the care of retired equines or equines in need of rehabilitating - most commonly due to issues surrounding diet, movement and trim. Our priority is to offer your equine a safe, natural space with their every need catered to - a home away from home.

We provide the residents of PB with a peaceful environment, fulfilling their need for a species appropriate diet amongst a herd with unrestricted movement. Each and every horse is given the freedom to forage, move, sleep and play whenever they please. At PB, we encourage horses to be horses.

Could your equine benefit from our set up and care?

The Paddock Paradise is a concept based on the lifestyle of wild and free-roaming horses, and provides domesticated horses with a environment that more closely resembles their natural habitat. Our equines not only reap the benefits of daily movement from one need such as water to another such as food, but additionally benefit from socialisation with other horses, grooming, foraging, playing and generally having the freedom of choice to do as they please. While your horse is with us, we aim to provide them with an environment that contributes to the release of any stress - be it stress from busy yard environments or lack of species interactions, we allow them to just switch off and simply be a horse. We provide them with companionship and the freedom to move, sleep, eat and play as they choose, all whilst having their diet monitored and managed for those with more complex needs. PB specialises and takes pride in the care given to those who have complex needs and conditions - treating every horse like our own.

PB further specialises in the rehabilitation of barefoot horses, most commonly working with Laminitis, EMS and obesity, injuries and grass related issues. 

For all packages, our set up is suitable for those who struggle with the following -

Laminitis and being prone to Laminitis - our non grass Paddock Paradise allows turnout without the danger and threat of grass - it allows us to manage their diet without restricting their movement.

EMS, IR and Obesity - our set ups are the perfect set up for losing weight and getting rid of those unwanted fat pads.

Arthritis, joint stiffness and ongoing or old injuries - the Paddock Paradise encourages movement which helps horses who stiffen, swell or worsen from box rest and stabling.

Resource guarding - all our liveries have access to 24/7 water, food and forage. With time we often find those who resource guard begin to trust in their freedom of choice (their food isn't going anywhere) and begin to share with others.

Anxious or stressy horses - we offer a peaceful, calm environment that benefits horses who are sensitive and stressy to constant coming and going, noise and busy surroundings.

Boredom - many horses walk through our doors suffer from problems such as crib biting and wind sucking. Being in a herd within a species appropriate environment allows them to thrive mentally, simply allowing them to be horses.

Grass sensitivity or grass - related behavioural issues -  our non grass Paddock Paradise system allows turnout without the danger and threat of grass.

Hoof rehabilitation - more movement encourages new healthy hoof growth, ideal for horses with Navicular and Laminitis. We specialise in this and work with our Hoof Care Practitioner Georgie Harrison of Hoof Matters for the best results.

Lack of muscle - our environment helps build and tone muscle - top lines, bottoms and shoulders strengthen naturally without ridden or in hand work.

Ulcers - our horses have constant access to low sugar, adlib meadow hay and other low sugar forage. We try to make out environment as stress free as possible for our liveries too.

Dubri's Story

Hi there, I'm Alyson.

I've now been working with and whole heartedly loving horses for a successful 40+ years. After owning my first horse Hazey at just 12 years old, my passion for horses has continued to grow in a multitude of ways.

My family and I first went barefoot when my daughter's oldest pony Dubri starting struggling with Laminitis and EMS. At the time, the Vet's only advice was to shut her in a stable and wait the process out but when said advice did not work, the question of Dubri's well being came to mind and so did the decision of putting her to sleep or not.

 

With plenty of research to fuel my final decision, I decided to take her shoes off, create a small track with minimal grass and hope for the best. 15+ years on and our little rescue pony is happier, brighter and better than ever on her very own grass-free Paddock Paradise with the sweetest of friends.

Rehabilitation at PB Barefoot Rehab and Retirement Paddock Paradise Livery - What can we help with?

Barefoot hoof symbol PNG.png

Laminitic Rehabilitation - we specialise in rehabbing Laminitic equines back to health. The majority of horses that come to us have diagnosed or undiagnosed Laminitis, whether that be sub-clinical, acute or chronic. 

Barefoot hoof symbol PNG.png

EMS and obesity - we welcome many equines into our care who are either overweight or have a diagnosis of EMS. We have had great success helping horses achieve weight loss and live a more healthier life.

Grass Affected equines - 'Grass Affected is a term originally coined by Jenny Parson of Calm Healthy Horses. A ‘grass affected’ horse has issues caused by one or more aspects of their forage and feed adversely affecting their health, movement and/or behaviour. We work closely with UK representative Sue Palmer of Calm Healthy Horses UK to rehabilitate or manage those affected.

Injuries and issues surrounding movement - we most commonly rehabilitate, help with or manage equines with soft tissue injuries, SI issues, tendon injuries, general stiffness and DDFT damage. We also have experience working with horses who suffer from tightness throughout their bodies and bad balance/lack of muscle.

Hoof Rehabilitation - working closely along side our AANHCP/ISNHCP Hoof Care Practitioner, Georgie Harrison of Hoof Matters, we are able to transition shod horses to barefoot or offer our services to those barefoot equines in need of a helping hand with the likes of Navicular and Laminitis.

What our liveries have to say

277162558_3077746852477059_2452835147524566263_n.jpg

"This amazing place has been home for my horse for a couple of years now. I never have to worry about her, she is looked after beautifully and in keeping with a natural life that I am sure she would choose for herself. She previously suffered with swollen knees and stiffness but since she has been on a track, on the right diet and constantly moving with her friends she has been absolutely fine. It’s a huge relief to know that she is looked after and loved as I work full time and have commitments that mean I cannot give her what she needs. It’s equine heaven and most of the time I wish I was a horse there."
