Kilronan Livery yard is a community within itself.

We support and encourage all riders in what they do and want to achieve within the sport. It is the home of Kilronan Riding Club, which encourages all our liveries to take part in activities both within and out of Kilronan. The tack room is a hub of activity, complete with a wood burning stove, coffee machines and kitchen facilities.

It's no wonder why our livery clients are so happy in their second home, and most importantly, the home of their most valued family member.

Three Horses

Jane Gallagher, Part-owner of Grace

''With its warm and welcoming atmosphere, Kilronan livery yard has become a second home for me and my daughter. The Dawson family have been on hand to help with everything from our search for a safe and suitable first horse, to training for local riding club events. The facilities on site are great (indoor, outdoor, derby field, daily turnout, walker and lots of space for hacking) but it's the people in the yard that make it such a pleasant place to spend time! There is always someoneto ask advice from or to swap horsey stories with over a cup of coffee. The standard of care and professionalism is second to none at Kilronan and all the livery horses are cared for as if they were the Dawsons' own.''

James Walker, Owner of Katanga

''I have been a livery owner in Kilronan since 2008. Since the Dawson Family took over in late 2014 the yard has been run like a family business. Everyone knows each other, and every horse is treated like family. It's nice to know that the managment care so much about my horse. She is given the best care and attention. I would recommend Kilronan Livery Yard to anyone that cares for their horse, and wants the people looking after them to care about them as much as they do about their own horses.'

Louise Somers, Owner of Arthur and Pride 

''I think the fact that I have had horses on livery with Kilronan for over 15 years speaks volumes. Kilronan Livery Yard has such a relaxed yet professional manner, it is the perfect mix. There is great attention to detail and each horse's individual needs are catered to. Above all else the horses are happy and the friendly welcoming atmosphere is a clear indicator of the happy livery owners too.''
