The Ridden Paddock Paradise Yard

In February 2023, we officially opened our second, brand-new paddock paradise (track system) yard for barefoot ridden horses. This new and separate yard is an expansion of our current livery services - our non-ridden, retirement and rehabilitation paddock paradise yard (opened January 2018). 

 

Our goal is to provide horses with species appropriate living on a Paddock Paradise (track system) whilst also incorporating the commonly found ridden facilities seen on traditional yards. We are also extremely excited to announce this is just Phase 1 of a grand 5-year plan, and so the new livery yard will be expanding more and more as time goes on with a range of facilities to offer as we progress.
