Pricing structure



Block A stables are large and are allocated to stallions as a priority.  If they are not booked out, they are available for hacks and galloways.  However if a late booking comes in for a stallion, by booking with Nominate, you agree to move your horse to the second size stables in Block B which are 3.000 x 3.100

Block B stables are 3.000 x 3.100m which cater for hacks and galloways.  While we appreciate you may be booking horses and ponies and would prefer to stable together, this may not always be available. Once again, large horses take priority.

Block C stables are only suitable for ponies as they measure 2.800m x 2.300.

Block D stables are suitable for hacks and galloways and are stand alone structures, fully covered.
