Ive Found The Perfect Livery Yard
I’ve found the perfect livery for my ‘sensitive’ type. She’s not the easiest to manage, but Michelle’s 30+ years’ extensive experience and her common sense approach means we usually avoid weight loss or anxiety before they arise. I really value her approach – also using the vast experience of the experts around us - vet, farrier, dentist, chiropractor, equine masseuse, saddler, nutritionist etc.
I travel with work and it’s critical that I can leave my mare with absolute certainty that she will be cared for, schooled, hacked and that I will be contacted if anything arises. The staff ride at a very high level and can cope with quirky behaviour calmly and with necessary humour!
Her lifestyle is definitely 5*, yet the smart facilities are the friendliest and most social of any yard I’ve been at.
I love the clinics, the lessons, and most importantly the downtime
with my happy and healthy horse.
I highly recommend SH EQ for livery or rehabilitation livery.
I always enjoy my visits to SH EQ. The professional way that Michelle runs the yard makes my work as an Equine massage therapist run smoothly. The horses are looked after as individuals and appropriate exercise or rehab programs followed accordingly . Most importantly, Michelle’s wealth of experience ensures the horses are worked sympathetically and correctly.
The atmosphere that Michelle and her team have created is calm and tranquil, resulting in happy horses and happy owners. It is so nice to see owners staying for the day, enjoying time with their horses without feeling they have to rush off after riding.
I moved my 2 horses to Stanley Hill about 3 weeks ago.
I was looking for a safe place for them to stay; large and clean stables with lots of hacking, a nice school and good turnout. What I got when I arrived was all of that and much more.
The yard is incredibly well kept, including all facilities such as wash-rooms, schools and fields. There is always a friendly face to have a chat and at the same time none of the facilities are crowded. My mare is quite nervous but settled in very well which was important to me.
The team at Stanley Hill is incredibly helpful, they cater for every quirk and requirement and are always available to offer a helping hand or advice (what is the temperature doing tonight: light or medium rug...??) , they keep a close eye on the horses to ensure they are doing well and are always looking to improve their quality of life. Within a few days my little pony had a 'stable-enhancement' to ensure he didn't have to reach his little head over the horse-sized door. He is ecstatic! (and I'm pretty excited to be here myself)
