We're all about strengthening the special connection between horse and rider, helping them reach their peak, whether starting out or overcoming hurdles. Our approach goes beyond the norm, focusing on natural care, understanding horse behavior through ethograms, and personalized rehab. We stand for a horse-friendly lifestyle that ensures their well-being and enriches the rider's experience. Our aim? A thriving partnership where horse health is key, fostering a path of shared growth and healing.

We take immense pride in providing an array of bespoke livery packages tailored to meet the needs of every horse owner. Whether you're seeking holiday, DIY, part, full, or working livery, we offer the flexibility of full grass livery or part stabling options to best suit your horse's needs and your preferences.

Our comprehensive care extends to regular consultations with veterinarians, physiotherapists, equine touch practitioners, dentists, and experts in clipping, worm counting, saddle and bridle fitting, and massage. This holistic approach ensures that every aspect of your horse's health and well-being is meticulously attended to.

Beyond basic care, we specialise in a range of services including behavioural training, rehabilitation, starting young horses, schooling, and sales livery. We understand the significant investment of time and resources required for these specialised activities and are here to provide the support and expertise necessary to achieve the best outcomes for your equine companions.

For those interested in our livery services and to discuss specific needs and pricing, we warmly invite you to reach out via email or phone. Our team is eager to collaborate with you and your four-legged friends to craft the ideal livery solution

From the spirited young to the seasoned elder, our vast experience spans nurturing young horses and addressing the challenges presented by those with more complex needs, all through tailored and ethical methodologies.

Patience is key with young horses, and we meticulously customise our approach to each individual's needs, recognizing that a well-founded and empathetic beginning paves the way for a fulfilling and extended ridden career. Our groundwork focuses on fostering confidence and ensuring the horse is straight, balanced, and supple before introducing a rider. This groundwork lays the foundation for a well-adjusted young horse, ready to embrace a diverse range of experiences and tasks that enhance their mental and physical capabilities, ultimately improving their rideability.

When confronted with a horse experiencing physical or behavioural challenges, our initial step is a thorough evaluation of their movement and behaviour, both in the stable and during groundwork, progressing to under-saddle work, guided by behavioural ethograms. This comprehensive assessment allows us to collaborate closely with you, integrating insights from our team of physiotherapists, bodyworkers, aromatherapists, farriers, dentists, veterinarians, and trainers to devise a customised rehabilitation plan centred on your horse's long-term welfare. We maintain detailed records of your horse's progress and are keen to share our techniques, empowering you to actively participate in their ongoing development. These cases demand immense patience and empathy, and we take pride in our holistic approach, acknowledging the unique nature of each horse and understanding that no single solution fits all.
