MORE ABOUT CARTERS BARN EQUESTRIAN
We offer very limited spaces for full, schooling, hunting and rehabilitation livery at our small, friendly yard in Piddlehinton (6 miles from Dorchester, Dorset). We are pleased to accommodate happy hackers, rehabilitation liveries, competition horses and everything in between! We are perfectly placed in the heart of South Dorset hunt country, with easy access to Cattistock and B&SV Hunts. We have some availability for holiday liveries, please contact us for further information, availability and pricing.
Our 16 box yard is located in a very private but stunning location in the heart of Dorset's AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty), with direct access onto miles and miles of bridleways. The hacking is incredibly varied with plenty of hillwork and grass canter tracks, perfect for fitness training, as well as woodland and quiet lanes, with no need for any road work if you don't want to. We are always happy to show our liveries the best routes.
The yard and grounds are maintained to a very high standard and are kept clean, tidy and organised.
We ensure the horses receive the best care and are treated as one of our own, and pride ourselves on getting to know each horse as an individual.
The facilities include:
- 25x50 Pegasus arena with a variety of training jumps and fillers. The arena has been fitted with a watering system to ensure it rides well all year round
- Large airy stables with automatic drinkers
- Internal and external cross tie areas for farrier/vet/clipping etc
- Hot horse shower
- Gated entry with key pad system
- Secure tack room
- Rug/feed store
- Tea room/kitchen area
- Trailer storage (lorry storage is an additional charge)
- Monthly dressage/flatwork clinics with UKCC Level 3 and BD accredited coach Amy Blount
The turnout is secure, well maintained and poo picked regularly. The fields are south facing, gently sloping on well draining chalk soil which allows all year turnout. We can offer pair or individual turnout, and have several smaller paddocks for isolation/controlled turnout.
Own instructors are welcome (subject to confirmation of valid insurance).
This yard has to be seen to be appreciated, so please get in touch for more information or to arrange a viewing, and we will be happy to discuss your requirements. A PDF copy of our pricelist can be downloaded here...
