Here at Greenvale Stud, Ty Llwyd Stables we have run a very successful Livery yard since 1998. We are located just off the A48 just 2 miles from Crosshands and 9 miles from Carmarthen, in a lovely village called Foelgastell. The yard is run on a day to day basis by me, Marnie Venables (proprietor). I am an Equine science HNC graduate and I over see all care given here at the stables, assisted by experienced and helpful staff.

The stud owns 110 acres of quality land. All fields have post and rail fencing or hedge boundaries and most have lovely natural wooded areas to provide shelter for the horses. The livery horses are stabled and turned out in their own fields, Stud visiting mares also have their own and the Stud Brood mares and Youngsters live out in their own separate fields too. This minimalises the risk of new horses bringing anything onto the yard and any fallings out amongst the horses. The yard has at least one staff member here at all times. Stabling is of the highest quality and so are the rest of the facilities. We have a floodlit all weather surface school and a large Round – pen.

We have a mixture of people keep their horses here on Livery and we all get on very well and often ride out together. It is a happy and friendly yard and we all help each other out.

We run the stables because we love horses! I think this is something that some people who work in the industry forget. We work hard and have fun with our four legged friends as often as we can (see the picture above of us taking out an hour to give our horses an open out! down the fields).

We offer DIY / Part or Full Livery see PRICE LISTS. All the liveries get on with each other very well and often help each other out if one goes on holiday etc. We are always here to help too. We often ride out together and help each other out with training of both horse and Rider. In the summer we have a field designated for jumping and we leave a course up down there for ourselves and the liveries to use.

Lessons are available and every month we have in one of the country’s best all round trainers to teach, David Moul. He is a BHSII and vastly experienced. He has Show Jumped at Grand Prix level on self trained horses. He trained with Yogi Breisner and trained the students at the Naval Riding Centre, taught at Spa shot. He also worked for John Lassiter and the Duchess of Richmond at Goodwood. We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have him come here and are feeling the benefits of his fantastic training ourselves. One of his lessons is pictured below, over our course down the field. Jeanette (an ex employee) has just started competing Eventing on her home bred mare. David has helped her greatly already and indeed myself, whois planning to start competing again after not doing so for over 10 years. Anyone interested in joining us here for some training, should just call the stud.

We are a well respected stables and are also vastly experienced in breaking in and schooling of youngsters and problem horses.

This is done with modern and horse friendly techniques and we have many success stories that we have either bred, trained or sold on, see our STUD NEWS or HORSES SOLD pages.

We do a lot of ground work with our horses before they are ready to break and we bring them all on at a speed that they can cope with and are happy with, this patience pays off ten fold when it comes to competing.
