RAVENSCRAIG

We offer full livery at Ravenscraig, our small, friendly adult yard in Highwood which is close to Ingatestone, Blackmore and Writtle. With only 11 horses this is a very quiet yard with a strong routine creating calm, settled horses and owners many of which have been with us for years. The same two members of staff have been working here for over 20 years so no worries about who is tending to your horse.

20 x 40 sand & rubber well drained arena with jumps and lighting which is only unusable when covered in snow. We also have a separate similarly surfaced lunge area which is also lit.

Turn out is in small groups in post & rail paddocks which we rotate weekly and are poo picked daily. There is daily winter turn out in the original arena with ad lib hay which is used when the fields are no longer usable.

Stabling in new barn built in 2016 all with rubber floors, automatic waterers & haybars. There are 2 tack rooms, a secure alarmed fully enclosed one for tack and another for other equipment.

Genuinely unlimited hay, deep straw beds and feed of your choice within reason are included. If you choose to supply supplements these will be added to your horse’s feed.

All usual services are included:- feeding, rug changes as required, turning in & out, picking out feet, washing where necessary, full daily muck out. Poo picking of fields to clear daily. All stables continuously skipped out when in more in the winter time. Fly masks, spray, etc applied as necessary. Attendance for vet, farrier, physio, etc. Rug washing organised for collection periodically.

All trainers, vets and farriers welcome and no time restrictions on your coming and going. Free parking for your lorry or trailer.

Owner lives on site. Security camera. Electric entrance gate is soon to be installed.

£510 pcm inclusive of straw (other bedding by arrangement)

The standard of care and knowledge of the staff at Ravenscraig is exceptional. I have kept several horses here over the past five years including my international dressage horse who now enjoys a quieter life making the most of the fabulous hacking. You will struggle to find better care for your horse anywhere.

I have been at Ravenscraig for approx 7 years. The care the horses receive is second to none with fantastic hacking. The staff are so helpful and caring i know my horse is looked after even when work commitments mean I can't get down on a particular day.

This is a fabulous small yard. Fantastic care and support from the team and the other friendly liveries. A fun place to be where the horses are happy and relaxed. Excellent facilities and safe woodland hacking.

Review by , 3 months ago

I’ve had my horse at Ravenscraig for over a year now and highly recommend it. My horse is very happy and relaxed. It’s one of the only yards I’ve been to where I can leave knowing that my precious boy is receiving fantastic care - the beds are big and clean. Hay is truly ad lib which is great. Aside from the great care and routine - it’s also a great bonus to be able to ride straight onto a Bridleway.

Review by , 3 months ago

I have kept a horse at this yard for 12 years & I wouldn't want to keep my horse anywhere else. The staff are brilliant & nothing is too much trouble & there is a good routine that the horses really appreciate. I never worry that my horse is short of anything and I am 100% confident that he is well cared for in the way I would like. The facilities here are great, as is the hacking, with lots of different routes & the majority is off road. I would highly recommend this yard.

My horse has been at Ravenscraig for nearly a year . The excellent care and routine enabled my horse to settle in straight away . The yard is managed to such a high standard that I never have to worry about anything . The location is also great for off road hacking !

Review by , 4 months ago

I have had a horse at Ravenscraig for 10 years and can honestly say that there is no where else I would rather be. The level of care is exceptional, I can go away on holiday knowing that my horse will be looked after in exactly the same way as if I was there. Horses settle in very quickly here as the routine is the same every day so there is never any worry about what time they are getting fed or turned out etc. Relaxed horses means happy owners!
