Farley Hall Equestrian Centre is a luxury livery yard on Farley Estate, the home of Viscount Bearsted. At Farley you and your horse will be catered for as an individual. We don’t do extra charges for every hay-net or bale of bedding, for electric, solarium or hot water, lorry parking is free and there are very few restrictions on use of the facilities: you can have whatever trainer you want.
Clients are treated as total individuals, whether the owner likes to be closely involved day-to-day or whether they prefer the yard to take responsibility for every aspect of their horse’s care. In spite of the luxury feel, there is real horsey passion behind Farley Equestrian and it matters not whether your four-legged friend is a happy hacker or an international competition horse, he or she will be treated with the same care and attention. A team of dedicated and knowledgeable grooms will look after your horse with military precision.
The BHS has awarded Farley Equestrian with a ‘Highly Commended’ status, quoting “I congratulate you on the High Standards of Stable Management and Horse Care throughout your centre, which I’m confident will be a credit to the BHS Approval Scheme”.
Farley Hall Equestrian Centre offers excellent, elite features that facilitate the highest level of equestrian care. Each horse is housed in a luxury Scotts of Thrapston stable. There is the use of washbays with warm and cold water hoses, a two-horse solarium, industrial washing machine, and drying room. There is plenty of storage space for owners, We pride ourselves on sustaining excellent paddocks, which are secure, well maintained and clean.
You can choose to ride in either our 60x33m indoor school or our 85x30m outdoor, and they are only booked out very rarely (less than once a month) for clinics – which you are also welcome to take part in! We can offer a full set of Showjumps, dressage boards and mobile cross country jumps. There is also a lovely level field for riding in if you prefer, not to mention the 1750 acres of private estate hacking. We also have a Monarch horse walker too.
We have an international SJ trainer John Sillett in residence, plus a BE Accredited Coach Natalie Gaibani (who also runs Farley Estate), and top trainers visit the yard each week such as List 1 judge Sue McMahon, Swedish U25 dressage bronze medallist Josefin Gyllensward, international eventer and BHS Fellow Nick Gauntlett, as well as one-off clinics with the likes of Spencer Wilton, Harry Meade, and others! Despite this, it is rare to see more than 2-3 people in the school at once and you can often have it to yourself as everyone’s schedules fit around each other and we have great communication about lesson times and school use (although you are always welcome to share).
We also welcome leisure riders and have many clients who just enjoy our hacking, or the all-year-round turnout in individual paddocks, or the friendly and supportive feel whereby everyone takes an interest in how each other are getting on and there is always plenty of help on hand. We have a secret Facebook group to arrange hacking and socials, or just to communicate with each other!
The yard is open 7am to 9pm with high security and insurance that covers all clients’ tack, plenty of horsebox parking and a clubhouse in the indoor school with free tea/coffee (and usually cake!), plus underfloor heating and showers/lockers in the style of a gym or spa, and free Wifi. We also have a sports masseuse working on site once or twice a month, and are in talks with a personal trainer who may rent a space on the yard as a gym, so it really is a one-stop shop for the busy working rider or leisure rider alike, who are looking for a place to share your hobby or competition interest with like-minded riders.
