I moved my mare Tally to BARC 1.5 years ago to have her to the same yard as my girlfriend’s horse so that we actually got to spend time together. Before I had even moved Tally to the yard, I had experienced the fun and family atmosphere of the yard. It didn’t take long for us to settle into the yard and she loved the turnout and relaxed, but regular routine of the yard.
There are lots of activities and clinics to take part in. We enjoyed regular trips out for show jumping and cross-country schooling where the focus was on building confidence and then challenging and improving the horse and rider in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed my time at the yard and find the Megan, the team and the other liveries to be a fun and supportive group of people.
The care of the horses is second to none and the additional peace of mind of having Megan who is a physio and experienced team on hand to pick up quickly on any niggles or when things aren’t right has been a real peace of mind.
Since coming to BARC my life has changed dramatically and my girlfriend is now my fiancée and we have now brought a house in the country together where we are moving the horse to be at home with us. If I was not moving Tally to come home, then I wouldn’t be moving her.
My only regret Is that this year covid has caused the summer camp, liveries shows and Christmas party to be cancelled as I feel I have missed out on these, but Megan may find that I will sneak back into summer camp and I plan to return for lessons and clinics, so it is not really goodbye to Bournefield. I would have no qualms about recommending the yard to anyone searching for a livery yard where their horse will be looked after to a high standard and like they were one of their own!
