Preconstruction Planning

We are very keen to be involved in your project from the outset. We can visit your property and discuss the options to suit your requirements. We can advise on the best siting to maximise your ease of use of the facilities as well as ease of construction and giving you the best possible value for your expenditure. We can help with your planning permission using a local planning consultant and architect. We have existing sites you are able to visit and see our workmanship.


Manege construction and refurbishment, stable yards and fencing, access roads, landscaping and most equine related projects.


You will receive a detailed quotation and programme for the works and we can adjust and alter the project  as work continues to take into account any changes you require.

All the plant, materials and labour are supplied by BFC Equestrian and a Risk Assessment and Method Statement provided prior to works starting. We are fully insured and only use reputable suppliers. Health & Safety is taken very seriously throughout the project.

All transport logistics are managed to fit in around your property and horses requirements.  

Project completion

On completion all the site and access routes etc will be made good , if required, and left neat and tidy. Areas of soil disturbed or made good around the site will be cultivated and seeded. In the case of a Manege we will return within a couple of weeks or so and remix the Combiride Fibre surface, adjust doors and gates and generally fix any snags that may have occurred.

Full instruction of maintenance requirements will be given. At any time we are happy to come back and discuss any queries with you and can provide an on going maintenance service should you require.



BFC Equestrian is part of Bassetts Farm Contracts Ltd. I started BFC in 1975 mainly agricultural contracting, but always with an equestrian angle as we had our own horses at home. BFC has always been involved in general groundworks and concreting of stable yards, garage bases, farmyards etc. We built our first Manege in the early 80's. Now based at Bull Farm, Cranbrook, where we have my wife and daughter's eventers along with a 60 x 30m manege, an 80 x 70m grass arena and full xc facilities,  I am specialising in equestrian and landscape projects.

We have links with Chart  Stables (www.chartstables.co.uk) for whom we build stable and garage bases. We recommend www.chrissaunders.co.uk a local planning and architectural consultants. For our manege surfaces we use and recommend Combi-Ride Dual Stabiliser from www.combi-ride.co.uk.

For all on going surface maintenance of manages, whatever the surface, you can't get better than the range of harrows/levellers made by www.arenamate.co.uk. We normally supply one of their levellers to all our new manege customers.
