Farnham Stables was originally established in 1981 on the property in Chartwell which is now part 1 of the Broadacres Shopping Centre. When that was sold in 2000, the 3rd road property was purchased. The livery yard is situated on 7 acres of land.
Farnham Stables is devoted to:
- providing a constant quality service to our livery clients. Although the yard can accommodate up to 80 horses; each horse and rider combination are treated as individuals, their needs relating to feed, paddock time and lesson times etc is carefully considered..
- training of all levels of horses and riders; from junior to young rider and adult competitive riders both in the showjumping arena as well as alternate equestrian environments.
- encouraging the full learning aspect of horsemanship and enjoyment of equestrian involvement.
- encouraging camaraderie – “All for one and one for all”.
- the buying, training and selling of quality showjumping horses.
Barry and Lorette are both active showjumping competitors and compete frequently at World Cup Qualifier level. They live on the property and give constant personal supervision to both their own, and their clients’ much loved horses. They work closely with the owners to ensure that their horses enjoy the best possible environment. There is a full time stable manager on the property. The highly trusted grooming staff also live on the property.
Barry and Lorette both coach and also provide the necessary show support for their clients. They understand that success with competition horses is as much to do with people, surroundings and collaboration as well as excellent care and schooling/coaching for both horse and rider.
Barry and Lorette have produced a number of successful competitors in various grades over the years, more notably three SA Champions, two SA junior Champions, a Derby winner, a junior derby winner, multiple FEI World Cup qualifier winners, two WCQ series winners, multiple SA Outdoor Grand Prix winners, 4 Philip Smith winners and in 2014 a Youth Olympics participant, to mention a few client successes.
