Winner of the Lövsta environment reward 2020
Julmyra Horse Center is located in a sensitive area. We therefore hold our environmental performance to high standards. Together with the municipality of Heby we take part in LIFE IP Rich Waters, a multi-year EU-project to improve the water quality in the Northern Baltic Sea Basin District. Within the framework of this project we have made several improvements to our facilities, with the aim to reduce nutrient leakage. We are now at the forefront in terms of manure management. The measures do not only benefit the environment. Improved drainage and dams to retain phosphorus have made the day-to-day management of our paddocks and tracks easier.
The methods and approaches used will be further studied and evaluated, with assistance from the County Administrative Board and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The LIFE IP Rich Waters-project runs from 2017 until 2024.
Julmyra Horse Center are a first-class training facility mainly for Trotters. But we can also offer very good training possibilities for riding horses. Rönningens Kör och Ridklubb takes care of the riding part for us.
