Our flexible “pick and mix” livery combined with our highly experienced and knowledgeable team ensure you and your horses receive the best possible service, care and attention.
In order to maintain a happy, healthy environment for you and your horse we ask that all livery owners sign our yard contract. Prior to arrival we also ask that the horse has an up-to-date flu and Tetanus certificate, and during your stay that you agree to participate in TEC’s regular worming programme (using worm-egg counts).
Livery fees must be paid by the 5th day of each month (preferred method is standing order). Extras (see below) will be billed at the end of each month. A deposit of one weeks’ livery will be required at the start of your livery package, which will be returned at the end of your contract.
Full-Livery Fees: £158 per week - without exercise (January 2014)
£210 per week - with exercise (January 2014)
We can also offer 4 or 5 day Full Livery options - please ask us for more details.
This comprehensive full-livery service covers all the services within the ‘Assisted Livery’ option (below) along with daily feeding, muck-out, turnout and catch-in, grooming, rugging, supervised farrier and vet visits.
The option of exercise 5 days-per-week is also available.
We also offer a range of short or holiday livery options (where space allows) - please contact us if you wish to discuss your individual requirements.
