Improvements on the yard

The yard has undergone major improvements and has a professionally installed 40 x 30 m Charles Britton sand/rubber arena which drains well and does not freeze in the winter. There is also a 20×40 m indoor arena. All tracks to the fields are road surfaced and more improvements are made.

Livery owners are welcome any time, there are no restrictions as the owners live on site. New Barn Stables is the home of Kay and Cliff Swabey.


  • 20 x 40 m indoor school for the rainy days.
