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

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
