Stabling and Livery

We currently have 110 stables across our three yards offering a variety of stabling solutions from the traditional stone built loose boxes on Main Yard to Beverley Yard’s wooden stables and York Yard’s American Barn system. 

Students are able to bring their own horse to College on a DIY basis. This is subject to availability, so book early as demand is great. 

Livery owners have access to the Equine Centre’s facilities when not pre-booked; this includes horse walker, a 6km hacking track around Bishop Burton's farm, indoor and outdoor schools. The Equine Therapy Area, including treadmill, weighbridge, solarium and supplementary therapy equipment can also be booked out at a discounted rate.

DIY livery packages include access to individual turn out areas. This will be discussed on livery induction and a rota will be in place. If the weather is very wet access may be restricted.

The Equine Centre also has a horse walker which is available to supplement exercise. Equine vets are present on-site every Thursday. Any veterinary call outs within this period are not subject to a visit fee. However, any treatment required will be billed directly to the client by the vet.

Horses suitable for working in as part of the college teaching sessions may be taken on a working livery basis. This service allows a student to keep their horse at Bishop Burton College for use by the Equine Centre during the term for all educational and teaching purposes for a maximum of three hours per day. The student is able to ride their own horse when not being used for teaching purposes – this is usually at weekends.
