Retirement Livery

Option 1     Stabled Retirement Livery


Your horse or pony will have his or her own stable all year round and will be on a "full retirement livery" routine.


This includes:


Stabling overnight in winter with daily turnout


Stabling during the day in the summer with overnight turnout


If your horse suffers with laminitis or for some reason requires restricted time out at grass, the turn out routine will be tailored to the individual horse or pony


All bedding, standard feed, ad lib hay or haylage included


Turning out / Bringing in includes picking out feet daily and hosing legs in winter 

Rug changing, and putting on boots if needed


Putting on fly masks (taking them off before dark), applying sun cream etc.


Dealing with injuries and/or longer term medical problems if necessary


Organising and attending vet, farrier, equine dentist visits


Arranging rug cleaning and repairs



Option 2     Retirement Livery at Grass


Your horse or pony will live out all year round with access to our new 24 ft. field shelters which are rubber matted inside.  


Horses and ponies live together in pairs or a group of 3, and at no time will they be left alone in a field.


We take just as much care of the horses and ponies living out as we do of those that come into their stables each day.


Our care includes:


Regular checking 


Changing rugs, putting on fly masks and taking them off before dark


Applying sun cream/sweet itch lotion etc., if needed


Poo picking the fields during summer months


Putting out ad lib hay during winter months (usually into tombstone hay feeders)


Taking feed, medication or supplements to the horses or ponies as needed


Trimming manes and tails


Treating legs and feet during winter to protect against mud fever


Dealing with injuries and/or longer term medical problems if necessary


Organising and attending vet, farrier, equine dentist visits


Arranging rug cleaning and repairs
