At Billings Livestock we're proud to be federally licensed and bonded. We are also governed by the Montana Department of Livestock.
Located about 25 minutes outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, Tivoli Farm is nestled in the middle of historic Keswick hunt country. The rolling terrain and ageless turf provide a wonderful, natural training base, complete with beautiful pasture, endless hacking, as well as fantastic views.
It is not hard to wake up every morning excited to go to the barn, and work in an environment this breathtaking. The Barn We take a lot of pride in the construction and overall design of our barn, all of which was done giving careful consideration to lighting, air flow, and seasonal flexibility, as well as to providing a calming and relaxing home for the horses.
All of our stalls have yokes and dutch doors on two sides, providing our horses the choice of hanging their heads either outside the barn or in the aisles. Bars between the stalls allow the horses to see each other at all times, fostering their tranquility.
Our aisles are constructed of rubber pavers, so that there is zero risk of a horse slipping. There are two grooming stations in the center of the barn, one indoor wash stall with heat fans, and one outdoor wash stall equipped with both hot and cold water.
The Riding Facilities Our facilities at Tivoli Farm are second to none, and we are thankful that we are able to provide students, horses, and supporters with such a wonderful place to ride, train, and ultimately call home. Our arena is a 26, square foot all-purpose school with a premium Wordley and Martin surface that is regularly maintained and watered for optimal footing.
The irrigation system is built-in to ensure year round good going. This beautiful light sand mixture is used extensively at many World Cup Show Jumping sites throughout Europe and the U. Inwe added an international-size turf dressage arena, perfect for big competition preparation.
Our ability to irrigate this area ensures that the going remains excellent, regardless of the weather. Plans are also in the works to install an all-weather international dressage arena adjacent to the current jumping ring.
In addition to our two arenas, Tivoli Farm proudly offers a Kentucky-based Kraft Horse Walker, one of the best in the business. A large training field also exists, providing numerous cross-country questions. Ditches, banks, corners, skinnies, and tables of varying size and difficulty provide all that you would need to develop young horses or school experienced campaigners.
A new water jump was installed incompleting what was already an encompassing cross-country schooling facility. Constant seeding, fertilizing, and mowing keep this field in pristine condition year-round.
Perhaps the biggest advantage boasted by this property is the two 3. We have routinely used this hill to top-up our three and four-star horses with resounding success.
A lot of effort has gone into making our training facility truly world class. From our footing in the arenas, to our half-mile turf hill gallop, the dressage school, our cross-country training field, our barn and feeding program, plus our 6-horse walker, we are able to manage a barn of 18 horses with the efficiency and commitment to detail that is seriously unparalleled elsewhere in this country.Equibase's Virtual Stable.
