A new livery yard has opened up just half an hour’s drive south of Glasgow rely on us completely to choose their home, companions, food and activities. So we could do no better than choosing as they would choose for themselves.
Goldcrest Livery, at Clarkston Farm in Lanarkshire, is one of those yards where the needs and welfare of the horses are at the forefront of the service offered. Goldcrest knows that a horse who has its physical, emotional and psychological needs catered for is in the best position to remain healthy and give its human more fun and less stress. People with the highest ethical intent for their horses will find a welcome there.
Goldcrest Livery is centred on peaceful surroundings with lots of turnout for the horses and friendly, knowledgeable support for the owners, plus great facilities. There are 100 acres of farm land, which can be ridden on, in addition to the 40 acres available for grazing. A newly resurfaced indoor arena makes sure that, no matter what the weather offers, riding is not interrupted. The yard has plans for a cross country training course, including a water complex, and a horse walker.
Alan Arnott, the man at the head of operations, was an original board member of the Scottish Equestrian Association (S.E.A), which is now HorseScotland. He was President of Polnoon Castle Riders Association for 10 years and was also Chairman of British Riding Clubs Area 1.
Enable Equine clicker training for ground work and ridden work, also NLP and other therapeutic sports psychology modalities for human performance. Liz Love visit regularly and there is even someone on site who can help should you wish to take up carriage driving.
Providing a pleasant happy place is the aim and everyone who spends time at the yard will hopefully benefit from this emphasis. The staff are there to provide support and help where desired. Of course it is recognised that, for some, just spending quality time with their horse is the aim and Goldcrest is happy to support people in this, just as much as supporting those who have great competitive ambition. Goldcrest is happy to welcome caring horse owners for livery and also takes horses for short term holiday livery.
