"Hivron Horse Haven"

newstables.JPG

Our naturally well draining, traditional pasture at HHH is fenced with a mixture of hedges,  post and rail and electric fencing, making a secure, safe environment for our horses.

The combination of up to three times weekly removal of droppings by a specialist machine, regular rotation of paddocks and the grazing of sheep ensures the pastures are kept in tip top condition. 

The pasture is managed within the guide lines of An Environmently Sensitive Area.  

All the paddocks have their own automatic water supply, drawn from a local reservoir.

As well as natural shelter on the south facing slope, all the paddocks have field shelters, which are appreciated by the horses and ponies as much in the summer as in the winter.

All pastures can be seen from the stable yard, this gives a high degree of supervision, plus they are thoroughly checked twice a day. 

All horses have access to shelter summer and winter, whether they have been allocated a large 14ft x 12ft, well ventilated and well lit stable, or they have opted to use the field shelter accommodation instead. 

The stable floors are cushioned with rubber matting and shavings or straw.  There are talk grids built into the dividing walls, which allow the horses to see and chat to each other. 

To encourage good respiration, and even dental wear, low-level mangers are used when feeding.

This picture shows our biggest yard with a shelter. We use this for the fatties in the summer and horses and ponies that are on restricted grazing because they are prone to laminitis. It is also used for horses that are on restricted turnout during rehabilitation.
