With equines living longer and our lives growing ever busier we understand the strain of owning older equines can add to your life, as they still require the same amount of care and commitment as a ridden horse.
Our equine retirement package takes the worry out of owning an older horse by giving you the peace of mind that they are being cared for properly on a daily basis by people who really care.
It is inevitable that with older horses the day will come that they will need to go to the ‘big ranch in the sky’ and as part of our commitment to you we can arrange this all for you making it as stress free for both your equine and you.
What the retirement package covers:
Our retirement horses live out 24/7, all year round (with appropriate rugs if required). We have found that this is the best way to keep them happy and healthy all year round. However should they require a stable for any reason one will be provided but we do try and get them back to their herd as soon as possible to reduce stress.
As well as the above your livery charge will cover wormers, feet trimming and hay. We will also send you a monthly report and photographs should you not be able to visit your equine.
All dental and veterinary bills are at the owners cost. We would contact you immediately should any medical care be required.
We will also deal with all end of life care should this be required. As animal lovers we know how hard these decisions can be so we will support you with as much or as little assistance as required. An agreed plan will be discussed as part of your livery contract on your arrival.
We cater for all horses from all different back grounds, our current residents consist of a retired national hunt champion, international show jumper, old hunters, beloved first ponies and a few hairy riding horses. Out of all the horses on the yard these are by far the happiest and the easiest to deal with.
