The stable contains fourteen oversize stalls (12’x14’ and 12’X15’) with a wide twelve- foot center aisle on each wing of the courtyard-style barn and along the main back aisle.
Beverly’s stalls were designed and constructed by premier stall builder, Lucas Equine Equipment (www.lucasequine.com). For almost 30 years, Lucas has maintained a reputation for designing and manufacturing the highest quality custom made horse stall components and the beautiful stalls manufactured for Beverly are no exception.
Designed with the safety and comfort of horses in mind, Beverly’s overall stall concept minimizes nearly all chewable areas and protruding parts. The stall doors are mounted on easy glide track systems and secured by Lucas’ state of the art gravity latch, which is completely encased in the frame thereby eliminating any dangerous protruding parts at the opening. Additionally, the doors have removable yokes on top and crosshatched gates at the bottom to allow constant airflow and supervision of horses while they are in their stalls. The stall fronts have integrated feed doors and collapsible rings for water and feed buckets. Beverly’s stall partitions are reinforced with low profile stiffeners at the wood area. All structural post edges are covered with powder-coated angle irons to prevent cribbing and chewing and maintain the durability of the stalls.
Of course, the stalls have to be beautiful, too! All steel components are painted in a timeless black matte with Lucas’s powder-coated paint process. The backs of the stalls have beautiful dutch-doors with a handsome cross-buck design and safety grills over the mullioned windows. The front sliders are designed with a graceful arch and feature beautiful bracket detailing.
All stalls are matted with the top-of-the-line StableComfort foam mattress system. For ease of feeding, each stall has an integrated feed door and drop down hay chutes from the hay loft above. Each stall is also equipped with a fly-mister system and ceiling fan with individual controls.
For grooming, the stable houses two interior wash stalls (one in each wing) with hot and cold water, and one exterior wash stall. Each interior wash stall is outfitted with a fan and dehumidifier and heat lamps. Each wing also houses two grooming stalls (for a total of four), each with bright natural and artificial lighting, embedded grooming supplies, conveniently placed electrical outlets for clippers, ceiling fan, and infrared heating element to allow for meticulous and comfortable grooming.
Each wing contains its own tack room, with built-in oversize cabinets. Each cabinet can accommodate two saddles, multiple bridles and supplies and is outfitted with individual outlets to charge accessories. Each tack room has its own iPod dock.
Off the main aisle is a full-size laundry and storage area containing an oversize washing machine/dryer and dedicated blanket drying closet with racks and humidifier. Here, there are multiple cabinets designed to conveniently store riding and training items, such as saddle pads, boots, and other equipment.
Also off the main aisle with convenient access to the parking court is a full-size, dedicated feed room for secure storage of supplements, feed and veterinary supplies. Each stall has a corresponding cabinet for storage of individual supplements and veterinary materials. The feed room also contains an industrial ice maker for cold therapy treatments.
Lounge and Other Rider Amenities
For the rider, there is an oversize lounge with kitchen appliances, dining area, sitting and media area, inside observation room and outside veranda with BBQ, as well as a bathroom with linen closet and shower.
All main areas of the stable are enhanced with a sound system that has dual-inputs to allow for different preferences in either wing aisle or the veranda.
The stable also contains many safety features for the client’s peace of mind and security. The stable is access by a coded and camera-monitored electric gate. The stable and indoor arena have a keypad entry system. Individual tack and supplement cabinets can be locked. The stable and indoor arena are outfitted with multiple security cameras, including rotating cameras that can be focused on medical stalls, if necessary.
