Poplar Park is located down a bridleway approximately half a mile from the road. With most of our staff living on-site you can relax, safe in the knowledge that your horse is being well looked after. At the Park, horses are kept in herd groups and have approximately eighteen hours turnout per day. Although this is incredibly rare these days due to a lack of space at the majority of yards, in the paddock with his friends is definitely where your horse is at his happiest. Coming in around 8 am to their stable, horses are turned out again in the afternoon or left in for you to ride after work or school. Over the winter months, some of the more sensitive and elderly equines are kept in overnight and this is always an option for your horse.
If your aiming to compete, there really is no better place to livery. The Park hosts many onsite competitions throughout the year. We regularly head out in the lorry to local events and as a livery, you are always welcome to book a space on the lorry for your horse. It's a great day out with Jon and Bo always on hand to help with anything from course walking to last-minute nerves.
If your dream is to be able to hack out without the stresses that roadwork inevitably brings, look no further: You will not find better hacking than here at Poplar Park. If you're not keen on going it alone you can always tag along with one of our organised hacks free of charge.
