VIDEO - New Arena Surface By Harrison Lane

Often an arena footing consists of a washed silica sand,  but we have found that using a new mix with a black sand has better binding qualities. The compaction properties of this sand are quite different to washed silica sand, it has a much higher density and holds ten times its own weight in water.  We worked closely with Stable 88, the New Zealand distributor for the GGT fibre product and the German manufacturer to perfect the new blend for local conditions, by installing and testing...

Exciting Developments At Harrison Lane For EQUITANA Auckland 2019

Goodwood Barn - Bringing Family Together

Modern ‘barn-style’ homes are hugely popular right now but this Goodwood Barn isn’t a house, it is actually a rural barn that houses a three-horse stable. However, it is no ordinary barn – it was designed to draw a family together through their personal loves: horses, dancing and cars. The 400m² Barn sits on a plot of rural land within the crater of an old eroded volcano in the Bombay Hills, about 40km southeast of Auckland. It is one of New Zealand’s most famous areas for market gar...

Safer Stables

1. Movement of Horses Aisles or breezeways between the stables should be at least 3m wide. This will allow horses to pass each other safely when moving around and when being handled or tied up.  It will also enable the handler to have plenty of room to work on the horse. 2. Stables, Dividers and Partitions A loose box for an average sized riding horse should be a minimum of 3.6m x 3.6m; this is a minimum recommendation and if you have the resources to build larger stalls, do. Many peop...

Stable Floors And Bedding Options

Hygienic stable floors, clean stalls and bedding go hand in hand with a healthy horse and are a must if you choose to box or yard your horse. Cost and availability have an impact on what you might choose to use as bedding for your stables, as will the base that you are putting the bedding onto.  Concrete floors are becoming less popular as the debate continues as to what effect standing on concrete for prolonged periods of time has on the horse. Concrete is also very cold during t...
