We specialise in Horse Retirement Livery at Lowertown Farm. We believe it's important to provide a loving and caring home for your horse no matter what age. Providing special care for the individual horse is vital.
All the horses are kept within a herd environment and as naturally as possible which means that, whilst we still maintain a careful fieldwork programme and regular farrier visits and worming, your horse is in a secure, happy and relaxed environment.
