Probably the best riding riding on Dartmoor, with instant access. Babeny is a fantastic yard to keep your horse at livery due to its amazing location, and the hacking it offers. You dont even have to touch a road! We have upgraded our facilities for all our livery horses, with a new purpose built American Style barn housing individual stables. We are currently working on a new tack room and owner facilities. Offering somewhere for you to relax and enjoy the environment as well as your horse. We have years of experience of looking after horses and riding on the moor. Your horses will be looked after like our own and you will find us a calm, happy and relaxed environment.
Take advantage of our floodlit outdoor arena free of charge, with views to die for.
Large gently sloping, open fields provide excellent grazing.
The horses have access 'to turn' out every day, all year round. They are part of a mixed herd and introduced gradually to avoid injury. They are brought in every morning for a check over, brush and feed if necessary and turned out again if you are not riding. In the winter they are stabled over night and out by day. We offer good quality haylage and sugar beet as standard all included with the full livery package, as is all care, changing rugs etc. You are welcome to buy small bale hay if preferred. Our grass is nutritious but due to us being over a 1000ft high it doesnt hold the same rich sugar content as lower pasture, and rarely causes any health related issues.The only additional items we charge for are clipping and exercising. We have an excellent farrier that visits normally twice a week and you pay him direct. We work closely with Dart Vale Vets and many of our owners share call out fees etc.
All the horses are in a flu/tetanus and regular worming programme and we would have the expectation that if your horse was here you would partake in the programme.
We are a very friendly yard with owners happy to share their knowledge of Dartmoor and the great rides available.
Unfortunatley we cannot offer part or DIY livery but are happy for you to be here as often as you want.
Please phone us for further details. We currently have 2 full livery spaces available, as of Nov 16.
