    Equestrian centre update - June 2021

    Thursday, 17 June 2021 11:24

    The Equestrian centre has been closed now for over a year barring a few short weeks when restrictions allowed us to open. As you are all aware an equestrian centre is not cheap to run with staffing, overhead, vet, farrier, feed and bedding bills to be paid to monthly. The equestrian centre has to make money to help it survive, over a number of years the income generated has decreased and the department has had to be subsided to plug these shortfalls of income by the other trading arms of the association, more often than not by thousands of pounds a month. The effects of the pandemic has meant that an increased level of subsidy has been necessary which – as a charitable organisation- we are not able to maintain.

    Therefore our board of trustees have made the incredibly difficult decision to temporarily close the equestrian centre. This is for them to assess the model and direction of the equestrian centre with a view to maybe change its reach in the future.

    Our horses will be going on holiday to a farm in the countryside until a decision has been made.

    Sheep Grazing in the big field from 17 May 2021

    Wednesday, 12 May 2021 12:10

    The largest paddock within the big field (which is where dogs are let of the lead) will be temporarily grazed by our sheep the week commencing the 17/5/2021 for a possible 3 weeks. (depending on grass intake).

    The field will be closed to people and dogs 24hrs a day as the sheep will be grazing throughout the day and night. The field will remain closed for a subsequent 3 weeks after grazing to comply with H&S regulations. As has happened throughout the last year with the lower paddock.

    We are grazing rather than mowing as we cannot afford the cost of mowing at present, also using sheep to graze this field is more environmentally friendly.

    • Please do not enter the field at anytime.
    • Dogs can scare or harm Farm animals so please keep them on a lead around livestock.
    • Please do pick up after your dog and put bags in the bins provided.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Tom and the farm staff team
