PB Barefoot Rehab and Retirement Paddock Paradise Livery

PB Barefoot Rehab and Retirement Paddock Paradise Livery is a family run Paddock Paradise livery situated in Staffordshire, Midlands UK. We specifically cater to and specialise in the care of retired equines or equines in need of rehabilitating – most commonly due to issues surrounding diet, movement and trim. Our priority is to offer your equine a safe and natural space with their every need catered to – a home away from home.

We have 3 fantastic, non grass Paddock Paradise systems – abundant with various types of shelters, feeding stations, natural herbs and forage, water points and wildlife. Our livery is spread out over 18 acres of undulating land purposely encouraging movement, healing, free choice and natural behaviours.

Our equines are in mixed herds; not only further increasing movement but often helping to elevate stress and anxiety too. Our herds also live out 24/7 with naturally high hedges, mature trees, valleys and field shelters at their disposal as well as an abundance of wildlife, enrichment and forage to further stimulate our equines mentally. The unlevel and hilly environment our Paddock Paradise livery is built upon actively encourages the toning of muscles in the most natural way possible and further maintains a constant level of fitness through the horses fulfilling their daily needs. Salt licks are used to ensure our equines receive an appropriate amount of salt, with access to additional salt water stations situated on each track. PB Livery works along side our fantastic AANHCP trimmer Hoof Matters, as well as our expert team of professionals to truly optimise the care that your equine will receive.

PB’s Paddock Paradise is perfect for enabling your horse to be out 24/7 whilst managing their diet – something that is crucial for those prone to Laminitis, weight gain, ulcers, EMS, grass sensitivity and grass related behavioural issues.

Could your equine benefit from our set up and care?

The Paddock Paradise is a concept based on the lifestyle of wild and free-roaming horses, and provides domesticated 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 provide them with companionship and the freedom to move, sleep, eat and play as they choose, all while having their diet monitored and managed for those with more complex needs. PB specialises and takes pride in the care given to those who have complex needs and conditions – treating every horse like our own.

PB further specialises in the rehabilitation of barefoot horses, most commonly working with Laminitis, EMS and obesity, injuries and grass related issues.

For both Retirement and Rehabilitation, our set up is suitable for those who struggle with the following –

Laminitis and being prone to Laminitis – our non grass Paddock Paradise allows turnout without the danger and threat of grass – it allows us to manage their diet without restricting their movement.

EMS, IR and Obesity – our set ups are the perfect set up for losing weight and getting rid of those unwanted fat pads.

Arthritis, joint stiffness and ongoing or old injuries – the Paddock Paradise encourages movement which helps horses who stiffen, swell or worsen from box rest and stabling.

Resource guarding – all our liveries have access to 24/7 water, food and forage. With time we often find those who resource guard begin to trust in their freedom of choice (their food isn’t going anywhere) and begin to share with others.

Anxious or stressy horses – we offer a peaceful, calm environment that benefits horses who are sensitive and stressy to constant coming and going, noise and busy surroundings.

Boredom – many horses walk through our doors suffer from problems such as crib biting and wind sucking. Being in a herd within a species appropriate environment allows them to thrive mentally, simply allowing them to be horses.

Grass sensitivity or grass – related behavioural issues – our non grass Paddock Paradise system allows turnout without the danger and threat of grass.

Hoof rehabilitation – more movement encourages new healthy hoof growth, ideal for horses with Navicular and Laminitis. We specialise in this and work with our Trimmer Georgie Harrison of Hoof Matters for the best results.

Lack of muscle – our environment helps build and tone muscle – top lines, bottoms and shoulders strengthen naturally without ridden or in hand work.

Ulcers – our horses have constant access to low sugar, adlib meadow hay and other low sugar forage. We try to make out environment as stress free as possible for our liveries too.

Review by , 11 months 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.
