LANE FARM EQUESTRIAN based at Hartford Road, Bedlington is a reputable livery yard and competition centre.

 Our aim is to provide a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with great facilities for horse and rider. Whether you are a leisure rider or more competitive rider, we cater for your needs.

 Having a large indoor arena at our disposal, riders have the opportunity to ride all year round; whatever the weather. Even in snow and ice or howling gale, you have the opportunity to keep your horse fit, training up to date, or just have a ride; you are in a protected environment.

 We have 400 acre of off-road riding as well as two outdoor arenas. Competition is on your door step with weekly showjumping, frequent dressage events and training. We have our own exciting Championship Leagues together with British Showjumping and British Dressage Events.

 High on the agenda at Lane Farm and recommended by the British Horse Society and governing Veterinarian bodies, is the importance of Bio-Security and the protection of our livery horses. To this end new horses are screened for Strangles and are quarantined for three weeks.

 Any contagious disease, whether it be Strangles, Equine Flu, Herpes, Foreign diseases and even Ringworm would manifest itself in that time. Thus ensuring our existing herd safe, as any infectious animal would be isolated from the main herd, from the onset of arrival.

 Enjoying the benefits of competition on site also brings the challenges of visiting horses. However, NO horses other than livery horses are allowed in our stable yard and all good bio-security measures are taken in our competition area.

 Our Quarantine Facilities include, Field Shelter/Stable/Field/Feed and Exercise area, all set aside from our Stable Yard.

 Quarantining new horses makes sense - giving our existing liveries peace of mind, helping eradicate and keep disease at bay.

 Three weeks pass very quickly and don’t forget you still ride – however afterwards you are able to enjoy our wonderful facilities and great social atmosphere. Oh .. and don’t forget to check out our website events page for happenings at Lane Farm.

 To help new livery customers with initial screening, Lane Farm has a great offer: - YOUR FIRST MONTHS LIVERY FREE! - What could be fairer … Feel free to contact us for more information regarding Lane Farm Equestrian.

Grandslam - 8th May 2016

What a beautiful day it was yesterday sun glasses and sun creams at the ready!
If you noted our previous posting concerning Grandslam you will remember there
was a tie for first place at the end of our 80cm Pony Grandslam Champions League. Our contenders
were Rebecca Wilkins with Star and Emily Scott with Winter Flame.
Yesterdays ‘decider’ confirmed 13 yr old Rebecca Wilkins with Star to be our 80cm Pony Grandslam Champion for 2015/2016. Emily with Flame went first but unfortunately had the first part of the
double down. Rebecca rode her beloved little Star and kept a cool head to master a lovely clear round. Rebecca can always remember she won her own Grandslam Championship the day Michael Jung famously won his at Badminton!!
We would like to congratulate Rebecca and Emily on their performances. Two lovely young girls who are great competitors here at Lane Farm, enjoying an exciting finish to their Championship.
True young sportswoman with their horsey passion at heart but with such friendly and happy attitudes. Well Done Girls!
Our decider for Reserve Champion in the 80cm Horse Grandslam was one by Jade Smith on Popular Demand. Jess Hayes and Valentino gave her best, knocking seconds off the time but unfortunately had a fence down.
May we take this opportunity to thank all competitors who participated in last years Grandslam
event and just to remind you that we are now at the start of the 2016/2017 year. So come and participate and earn your Sunday League points here at Lane Farm.
