Having endured one of the wettest Februarys in years our paddock preservation attempts have been tested to the limit and thanks must go to our customers who have been pretty sensible with their daily turnout. We offer all year turn out at our livery and can only hope the weather improves to allow us the chance to roll the fields to allow grass growth and replenishment as March takes us into the spring season.
Our commitment to recycling has been recognised as we were awarded a SEPA approved certificate for the disposal of our haylage wrapping. We also have a SEPA approved system for general waste comprising of three areas for disposal – clear plastics from shavings bales, coloured plastics for feedbags and card and paper. We take it to a disposal depot and where, once unloaded, gets compressed and sent all the way to Asia where it is turned into pellets for further use.
We were delighted to be placed into the Business of the Year category at the https://www.horsescotland.org awards at the Dunblane Hydro on March 6th 2020. What a fabulous evening and it was and an absolute privilege to hear equestrian Olympian Jonty Evans giving a speech about never ever giving up. The determination and grit he displayed after a truly horrendous accident and recalling his recovery to running the Great North Run the following year was truly astonishing.
Although we didn’t win this time,we congratulate A2B Equestrian who picked up the award and their dedication to keeping people safe in the equestrian world.
A very informative evening. Did you know there approx. 500,000 horses in Scotland ?. When the riders were asked about what they did most with the horses – hacking came out on top. Having access to the routes we have here at Blackfaulds Farm Livery is a great basis for horse fitness and creating bold horses to go on to their various disciplines and not forgetting the general well being buzz we all get from riding on the endless off road tracks we have here at our disposal.
