ServicesLivery Yards£ 400 / month
We are offering 2 spaces for retirement livery on a beautiful quiet and private estate, surrounded by farmland near Newbury, in West Berkshire.
The horses will be turned out with two other retired horses, including our own mare. We provide year-round grazing in post and rail and hedge-lined paddocks. We rotate our fields according to weather, season and grass cover and rest them when necessary. Grazing is in a stunning 15 acre water meadow and we do not use any chemical spray or fertiliser of any kind. Our soil is very well-drained and so does not get boggy and inaccessible. The land is beautifully maintained and all upkeep is done by us. As well as having the benefit of large field shelters with a hardstanding in every field, the horses benefit from natural shade from a number of large trees, as well as a freshwater stream that runs through the meadows. Our fields are very large but all are easily accessible. We are on site 24/7. Finally, we have experience looking after older horses and offer you stress-free retirement for your much-loved friend.
I have over 30 years of experience with horses, producing and competing eventers and show jumpers, as well as running a busy livery yard near Ascot.
