This is the most popular choice as many people just want to keep their
horse safe and have all the facilities of an equestrian centre as well as the use of a safe riding area. These
horses are not rugged. If you wish your horse to be fed and/or rugged, it needs to be in its own private
paddock (The "Solitaires" Paddock).
The Horses With Friends are rotated onto fresh grass as the need arises. All of the
paddocks have a generous number of shade trees to stand under to keep nice and cool. All of the pasture is
mineralised and fertilised regularly. We have an assortment of native perennial grasses in the pasture, that is
based on palatability from a horses point of view, not a humans! You are welcome to come and see your horse during
the day at any time throughout the week as well as the weekend. Horses will be brought back close to the main
facilities for the weekends, if they are in one of the farther paddocks.
Horses are to arrive in good condition. Any horse that is in poor condition will
need to be fed to bring them up to a reasonable condition before turning them out in the paddock. The cost of this
will be at owners expense.
As all horses are quarantined for 2 weeks, it may be necessary for the Horses With
Friends to be fed hay during this time. This depends on the season. The cost of the hay will be deducted from your
monthly agistment fee. However if there are any extra feed expenses over your monthly fee, then this will be at
your cost. The amount will depend on his size,metabolism and the cost of hay at the time.
