The Yard and Routine

Horses settle quickly in Nine Acres peaceful, structured environment.  Our internal stabling is snug whilst maintaining excellent ventilation. Since 2016 Nine Acres has undergone continuous renovations and Hazel’s constant desire to progress horse management has led to all the horses living out all year round. Our stabling is still used for each horse’s daily feed, giving an opportunity for a through health check and a few hours of sleeping for those who wish!

Each box is fitted with a back ”window” which is
kept open in all but poor weather.

Our grazing fields are enjoyed by the horses who do well on grass, while those with metablic conditions are carefully managed on our evolving track system.  All of our horses live in carefully matched herds with adlib hay fed in feeders.

With high standards in the management of our yard, stables are equipped with deep beds with proper banks help keep horses comfortable.  Feeding hard feed and adlib forage from floor level allows for a more natural system for the horse, and our late night check ensures we keep an eye out for any problems and horses are kept occupied with healthy digestive systems.
Our 20 x 60m sand and rubber arena and miles of quiet hacking allow us to vary our horses work to their individual requirements.  Finally, we have only a small number of staff, all hard working and committed, with the same high standards and beliefs as ourselves, maintaining consistency in every part of your horse’s training.

We believe our management system, along with our attention to detail in training, is key in keeping our horses happy and healthy.
