About the event

A track system provides an environment that caters to a horse's fundamental daily needs such as 24/7 turnout, herd living or companionship and a species appropriate diet. With an array of common equine conditions linked to diet and management such as Laminitis, ulcers, EMS, obesity and more, keeping horses on a track system provides an alternative way of rehabilitating or managing horses with ongoing problems. Better yet, a track system provides countless benefits that every horse will better from in some way or another, even those without medical conditions. Be your horse retired, ridden or in need of some rehab, a track system not only fulfils your horse's needs but also often reliefs owners of the constant stress that comes with battling grass, individual turnout or long hours of stabling. 

If you're interested in setting up a track system for your horse but don't know where to start, this course is perfect for you. Our 6-week online, interactive course is designed to break down the planning, budgeting and building stages of setting up a track system into small, manageable chunks of information, distributed through interactive, 2 hour meetings every week for 6 weeks. Attendees will have the opportunity to implement each week's topic or task into their horse's management, care or land, step by step with our guidance and support.

Suitable to:

  • Those on rented land or livery yards who are unable to surface.
  •  Those on a budget or limited funds.
  • Those on large or small plots of land - we have experience with both!
  • Those on hilly land, woodlands, clay and more.
  • Complete beginners or anyone wanting to expand their knowledge.
  • Those with Laminitic or EMS horses looking for different management methods.

The course will start on Monday 17th June 2024 at 7pm GMT and will then continue to take place every Monday at 7pm GMT for 6 weeks until the 22nd July 2024.

Who are we?

PB Paddock Paradise Livery is a family run, track system livery with over 15 years of rehabilitation or tracking experience. Specialising in the rehabilitation and management of Laminitis and EMS, we now have 2 seperate track system yards with varying sizes of herds, land types and more. Our main yard's tracks are non-surfaced due to being in a protected area but we do have experience setting up a track system for both a small amount of horses and herds up to 15, with anxiety or medical conditions, in a woodland or over undulating and hilly land. 

Alyson Sharpe of PB hosts regular clinics, workshops, open days and courses, in addition to providing 1 to 1 services, to help horse owners expand their knowledge on species appropriate living, diet and lifestyle and managing medically complex horses.
