We run a dedicated competition yard offering a premium livery experience, with all duties and services carried out by our Prestige Competition Team.
Whether you are looking for short-term livery such as holiday, schooling/training or sales livery, long-term livery or are interested in our horse finder service, we have the knowledge and facilities to suit.
Our livery services are managed from within our main competition yard, by Sara & Rachel Gallops dedicated team. We have both International Dressage & Jumping horses which receive 5* care, 365 days a year. It is important to us to have happy athletes who not only perform to their best, but also benefit from “down time” with regular turnout out, hand grazing, FMBS massage therapy and leg stretching on our Monarch Horse Walker.
Your horse will receive the best care, taking advantage of our FMBs Therapy System, infrared Solarium and fan unit, hot and cold horse wash facility, daily individual turn-out and walking exercise am and pm.
We provide a range of top class facilities, with 4 arenas available, 2 indoor and 2 outdoor, whether you are dressage or jumping specific, there is always an arena available to you, with a BS course outside on a weekly basis and a full 20 x 60 dressage arena set up in preparation for the fortnightly show. As a livery, you are able to take advantage of these competition facilities, as well as having a show centre literally on your doorstep.
We also offer a Pro Wax surface floodlight round pen for turnout and lunging, have canter tracks for hacking in the summer, XC and SJ paddocks for schooling and quiet on-road hacking in the winter months.
New in 2018 we have installed the latest design of the Activo-Med water treadmill. The treadmill is used to improve core strength, muscle development and stride length and is an ideal compliment as part of regular training and is suitable for all horses and ponies whatever their abilities. The resistance of the water increases muscular strength and research has shown that water can increase range of movement in joints and throughout the neck and back.
