We offer a flexible livery package, catering for full, part or working liveries. Our friendly, family approach ensures that we can offer you the service and support you desire, whether you are an experienced owner, or thinking of buying a horse for the first time. We offer special livery packages for those who have a horse or pony that requires re-schooling or breaking in. So whether you require help preparing for a special event, or just need help dealing with a specific issue we can help.
Once you have mastered the art of riding and horse care, there is an opportunity to purchase one or a share of our specially selected horses or ponies at a reduced rate, and keep them at the yard on working livery. This arrangement works very well for busy families. The horse is cared for by the centre and used in lessons to maintain their level of fitness and schooling, in return there is a reduction in the cost of keeping the horse per week. This allows us to invest in new horses and ponies whilst offering a good selection of safe, reliable horses to our customers.
