Our Stables

Our stables are approx.13 x 12 or 12 x 12, with two being approx.16 x 12 in size and are housed in a courtyard type layout. This gives our horses' a well-ventilated environment as well as allowing the horses to see and be with each other helping to maintain a relaxed, calm atmosphere.

At GATES we know that fitting in your riding with a busy work schedule can mean that at times you may need to be on site early or late, hence, the Yard is open for Clients between 7:00am and 8:30pm. These opening times are subject to change in winter months.

In extenuating circumstances GATES will ensure the yard is available to Clients around these times.


All livery Clients have unlimited access to the facilities.
