The Package

image123

Our package is designed to include everything that most horses routinely need, for a fixed monthly fee.

 Unless your horse becomes ill and requires veterinary treatment or some other outside intervention, you can expect no additional charges.


Our retirement livery package includes:


STABLING & MUCKING OUT

 

  • An individual loose box identified by your horse’s name available for your horse all year round
  • Regular inspections of the box to identify any defects and prompt remedying of any found
  • Daily muck out, clean and disinfection of the box and daily provision of fresh straw bedding 


NB - In late Autumn and Winter horses will usually be turned out during the day and brought in before dark. In extreme weather they may be brought in (or stood in) during the day. During late Spring to Early Autumn, depending on weather conditions, horses may stay out at night and be brought in during the heat of the day.


FEED

 

  • Provision of good quality hard feed of a type and quantity to provide for the proper nutrition of your horse (as agreed with you) - up to twice a day

TURNING OUT AND BRINGING IN
