Horse owners are invited to keep their horses at the yard on a schooling or working livery basis. It is also possible to bring horses for a short stay while you are on holiday, or for overnight stabling when attending local horse shows. If you are looking for a home for your horse while you are away at university for example, or you require a long term home for a horse that you may have out grown, but do not wish to sell to an unknown future we may be able to help you. We are able to accommodate a limited number of donated horses. Please call Sarah to discuss the options if you feel this could be a helpful solution for you.
For security the yard is gated and covered by CCTV. The tack room is alarmed. The owner lives on the property. All stables are fitted with electric lighting, automatic water drinkers and kick bolts on the doors. We have around 80 acres of grazing, fenced with electric fencing, and automatic water drinkers. The following facilities are available for use by livery owners: Restaurant. Vending machines. Toilets. Indoor Schools. Jumps. Outdoor schools and paddocks. Three miles of farm tracks. Livery owners are welcome to join lessons in the riding school, enter our competitions and make use of the other facilities.
Working Livery: Ideal for owners who do not have time to exercise their horse every day. We take responsibility for the full care, feeding, bedding etc of your horse so no need to worry if you can't get here every day. The horse must have tack provided and be available to be ridden by members of staff and selected clients at certain hours during the week and at weekends. If a horse is not suitable to be ridden by clients, eg. too young, too unpredictable, lame, it may be offered a place in Full Livery.
