ash. Foxridge Stables




Pastures:
The owners of Foxridge do not own these; they lease them off man who recently sold his small heard of dairy cows. In all there are twenty paddocks, currently there is only five in use. The paddocks are large, giving the horses plenty of room to explore.

Wash Rack:
Here is where you wash the horses; it is located on its own, more towards the back of the stables area. It has drains where the dirty water from the horses so that it does not go elsewhere. From here you see the paddocks where the horses graze.

Indoor Arena:
This is used the most for riding lessons, but it is also available for those who board their horses at the main stable. There is an outdoor arena currently being built, but it will be a while until that is finished.

Main Stable:
Here the riding horses are kept, with over twenty stalls it is the biggest stable out of the two. At the front there is a small office, in here you will find either one of the owners the majority of the time. Further down there is a tack room, which is always immaculate like the rest of the property. The feed room is located in this stable also.

Boarding Stable:
The locals or those who came here for holidays for at least over a month board there horses here, it is the same size as the main stable but it only has fifteen stalls. The stalls are slightly bigger, and the detail around the stable has more of a luxurious feel. It has its own feed room and tack room.

Spare stable:
This is where the owners keep the newly broken or troubled horses. There is rarely more than three horses in this stable. Their own horses are also in here as it is somewhere no visitor is allowed to go unless they are supervised.

Lodging aka ‘guest housing’:
This building is specifically for the workers of Foxridge Stables that are not from the Island. With 20 rooms, this building has a college dorm feeling to it. Located a ten minutes’ walk away from the Stables it is an ideal place for those who do not have anywhere to stay. Surrounded by forest it is easy to see why one would want to stay in such a place.

The Bran:
This is the barn, it's a magnificent wooden structure with fifty spacious loose boxes equiped with automatic water dispensers. It's always kept neat and tidy in the barn, and the doors are locked from eleven pm to six am. Only people who work at the barn are allowed to stay later and come in sooner.

The Office:
This is the office, where the manager does most of the paperwork and sorts out lessons and such. If you're looking for something - perhaps to start riding, loaning a horse, boarding a horse, looking for a job or perhaps you want to put an advert up..then come here and someone'll be here to help!

The Pastures:
These are the fields, there several of them to split the mares from the stallions, but each field is vast, stretching out for several acres with shelters in case of rain.

The Arena's:

These are the arena's, they're set a little bit out of the way from the yard to allow some peace from the hustle and bustle of the yard. They're smoothed over every evening and jumps are kept tucked away within the corners..remember to put them away after you use them!

(view spoiler)


The Tack & Feed Room:
This is the tack and feed room, tack is kept in neat, labelled rows and the feed is well stocked in labelled feed bins. Make sure you keep the place tidy and remember to clean your tack every now and then!

(view spoiler)

The Breeding Barn:

This is the breeding barn, where stallions offered for stud and broadmares are boarded. It's a top of the range barn with it's own couple of paddocks for the newborn foals and their dam's to be put out to grass until the foal is old enough to be moved to the regular barn.

(view spoiler)


The Trails:
These are the trails. There are several different paths that will take you off to different places - from a woodland ride, to one that'll lead right to a little secluded beach (Lake). Take your pick and enjoy the ride...be careful of the weather though, and the wildlife!
