In all, our Livery consists of 10 stalls housed within a warm and comfortable American Style Barn by Prestige Timber Stables. Each of our stalls are 12ft x 12ft, rubber matted, with automatic water feeders and all have outward facing windows for ventilation and mental stimulation.
In addition to the stalls, within the barn we have a Wash Bay, Feed room, Tack room, Hay barn and general storage area. So, on wet winter days, you needn’t worry about getting your feet wet while caring for your horse.
As our focus is on equine well-being, we understand the importance of regular turnout. Here at Blenheim Stud we offer all Livery horses access to turn out all year round. We have 10 smaller turnout paddocks that are ideal for summer grazing, and two large fields that we circulate for winter grazing as well as hay cutting within the summer months. All our paddocks are safe and secure, electric fenced by HorseRail Ireland (Link to https://www.horserailireland.ie/).
Our outdoor, all weather arena is compact, but immaculately maintained. Our footing is silica mixed with a carpet mixture by Equestrian Surfaces Ireland, providing excellent footing for any discipline. Created in 2014, to date our arena has never flooded or even so much as gathered a puddle in the wettest of weather. We also have a selection of 10ft jump poles and uprights, as well as cones and portable gates for all your groundwork needs.
Hacking out is not just a great way to improve your horses fitness, but it also engages the horses brain by keeping them mentally fresh over a variety of terrain; with many questions and life lessons learnt without a daily gruelling in the arena. At Blenheim Stud we have fantastic access to local beauty spots such as The Hurt Hill, and beaches such as Woodstown, as well as a maze of local roadways. Enough to keep you and your quine mentally and physically happy all year round.
