Our Paddock Paradise Track Systems

Our livery consists of three non-grass Paddock Paradise track systems - one smaller track and 2 much larger ones that measure 3/4 of a mile long. We typically call the separate tracks 'Track 1' (the smallest one), 'Track 2' and 'Track 3'.

Track 1 houses our smallest herd, which is typically much more slower paced than the other two herds, as Herd 1 consists of our most complex or compromised equines. We have intentionally created an environment for Herd 1 that allows us to implement the freedom of choice, adlib hay and most importantly movement, without making the environment too high energy. This allows us to use Track 1 as a beginner track (if needed) for any chronic Laminitics or lame equines joining us for rehabilitation. 

Track 2 and 3 house our larger herds and although they are similar in numbers, Herd 2 and 3 differ in activity levels, personalities and vary largely in medical needs. When deciding where to place a new arrival, we speak in depth with the owner to find the best fit for their horse - considering medical needs, past experiences, behaviour and personality. We try to be very accommodating and flexible on this front. 

Although all 3 of our Paddock Paradise systems have many of the same features, each track does vary slightly.

Track 1 consists of the following - 

> Adlib hay, fed in a variety of hung haynets and netted hay boxes, strategically placed around the track to encourage movement as opposed to camping. 

> ByHiggins Lick Safe with mineral and salt blocks. 

> Scratching brushes.

> The 'Carrot Dangler' - aka, some hanging (small) logs we slot carrots into. 

> Water source.

> Sand pit (currently in the final stages of constructing)

> Field shelter with bedding supplied. 

> Feeding and grooming pen x 2.

> Natural shelter from hedges and mature oak tree.

> Solar panelled electric fencing with back up batteries. 

New additions to be made/added soon.
