Their stables are a little dark and sadly they do not have windows or a paddock which are options for boarders at my yard. However my girls spend their afternoons & evenings outside in a turnout area which I have been lucky to get separate from the yard - unfortunately there is no winter turnout option offered at my yard.

I have three tack lockers, although I have only taken a photo of the two i use regularly. The third one is just storage at the moment. I am technically only supposed to have one per horse, but before Nancy came into the picture the tack locker below the one I had for Kika became available - for a tenner a month I could rent the extra locker. Rather than give one up and risk not being able to get an extra locker again, I was selfish and hung on to the third one when Nancy arrived *blush*

I am spoiled rotten with the facilities at my yard, we have three indoor arenas, an outdoor and a smaller lunging arena which I have been known to ride in when bringing the ponios back into work after injury as less space for them to take notions in...
|My favourite arena to ride in (20x40m²)|

|Oldest arena (20x40m²) & mostly used for|
Riding School in evenings, so rarely available
when I ride - LINK
The outdoor is huge, 25x75m² and has floodlights if you want to ride in the evenings or when it is dark.

I can't just pick one thing sadly, I love the people, the fact that it is 10minutes walk from where I live and that my girls are well looked after & I can see them everyday - if not in fact twice a day as I zoom there and back on my lunchbreak to turn them out during the winter months. I am spoiled rotten by the facilities and I haven't even mentioned the solariums, washbays, grooming areas &/or walker! For full breakdown of facilities available check out LINK to stable webpage, although many pictures have been shared by my of the girls in different areas on this blog throughout the years.
