PB Paddock Paradise Livery

PB Paddock Paradise Livery is a family-run paddock paradise (track system) livery situated on the Staffordshire Shropshire border in the Midlands, UK. Specialising in the rehabilitation and management of Laminitis and EMS, we additionally cater towards a wide variety of horses with common or complex medical conditions, typically caused through an unsuitable diet, environment or trim.

Offering retirement, rehabilitation or non-ridden livery, our priority is to provide your equine friend with a safe, species appropriate environment whilst having their every need catered to. We take great pride in offering a high standard of horse-centric care, encouraging horses to be horses.

What is a Paddock Paradise?

The Paddock Paradise is a concept based on the lifestyle of wild and free-roaming horses, and provides domestic horses with a environment that more closely resembles their natural habitat. Our equines not only reap the benefits of daily movement from one need such as water to another such as food, but additionally benefit from socialisation with other horses, grooming, foraging, playing and generally having the freedom of choice to do as they please. While your horse is with us, we aim to provide them with an environment that contributes to the release of any stress – be it stress from busy yard environments or lack of species interactions – we allow them to just switch off and simply be a horse. We also provide them with companionship and the freedom to move, sleep, eat and play as they choose, all whilst having their diet monitored and managed for those with more complex needs. PB specialises and takes great pride in the care given to those who have complex needs and conditions, treating every horse like our own.

  •  Laminitis and EMS – With a species appropriate diet in place and daily movement encouraged, our set up is perfect for shifting those unwanted fat pads and excess weight. Our particular set up allows 24/7 turnout without the danger and threat of grass, allowing us to manage their diet without restricting their movement.
  • Arthritis, stiffness and injuries – Prioritising daily, consistent movement and a barefoot natural trim allows the hoof and body to function freely, without creating additional soreness, stiffness or swelling through long periods of box rest, minimal movement or the use of shoes.
  •  Grass Affected issues – Eradicating your horse’s access to grass and ensuring their salt, vitamin and dietary needs are fulfilled, our paddock paradise livery allows horses to socialise, play and move freely without battling metabolic, behavioural, physical or neurological issues that stem from high levels of sugar, potassium and nitrogen.
  • Hoof and body rehabilitation – Providing a species appropriate environment, diet and trim stimulates blood flow, aids in new hoof growth and facilitates in increased muscle definition and weight management. We are ideal for those with ongoing issues such as Navicular, Laminitis, on/off lameness, cracks, sore heels, poor quality hoof horn, SI issues, soft tissue injuries, lack of muscle and more.
  • Anxiety and resource guarding issues – Many horses struggle with anxiety caused through restricted feed, turnout and isolation or the comings and goings of a busy yard. We pride ourselves on offering a peaceful environment, fulfilling their most basic needs without restriction or pressure. Our liveries have access to 24/7 turnout, socialisation, hay, water and shelter.
  • Ulcers and Colic – Facilitating your horse’s need for a constant supply of high fibre in the form of adlib hay and enabling continual movement helps to improve overall gut function and can drastically reduce the occurrence of ulcers as well as decrease the risk of colic.

We also offer ridden livery to ridden horses and their owners at our separate paddock paradise yard: PB Paddock Paradise- Ridden Livery

This yard look after pony and owner. If there was an option to move in, I’d be there. Simply put I searched and viewed many places to find the right place. Most are interested in how they meet your needs as the owner, at PB the horse is first and the owner second. Refreshing and knowledgeable. The Best Care any pony can have.

Review by , 5 months ago

So happy to have found PB for our Sophie. Their care and attention is excellent. We spent along time looking for a suitable livery when we moved to Stafford. Sophie had been used to full time field access and hated being stabled. We were not particularly looking for a track system, not knowing much about it, but it suits Sophie very well. We had always managed her diet by strip grazing, but it was a challenge! She has been at PB for just over a year and is happy, healthy and looks younger. We couldn't be more happy with her care.

Review by , 1 year ago

I had tried to manage my spooky grass affected horse for a while, but he became worse & rather dangerous to ride. Luckily PB had a space & could take him for rehabilitation. Now barefoot and living mainly on meadow hay, his feet have improved, muscle tension has reduced, and hopefully his brain will be calmer when he comes back into work. Alyson & the team are very knowledgeable, and are totally focused on the horses' needs. All the horses on the track are relaxed and happy. Having kept horses by 'traditional' methods previously, track life has been an eye opener for me, and I am so glad I found out about PB.

Review by , 3 years ago

My ponies and I had struggled to stay healthy in various rented fields trying to use track principles but never able to get rid of grass. I knew they would benefit from being in a herd on a track and when ill health made diy almost impossible I took them to PB. It was supposed to be an interim measure while I recovered and found somewhere to keep them nearer home but that was two years ago. They have done so well there, stable weight fantastic feet happy and relaxed that I can’t move them unless I can replicate what they have here. Alyson does a fantastic job and I have seen other horses rehab on the tracks sometimes nothing short of miraculous. Highly recommend.
