FULLERS HILL FARM

Grass Full Livery

From 4 year olds upwards Fully Supervised Retirement, Convalescence/Resting Livery, Horse and Ponies in work to be discussed

Fullers Hill Farm is set within 50 acres of flat and good quality grassland, providing a safe and secure full livery for horses and ponies in retirement, convalescing and resting from injury or illness.

Horses and ponies would graze in pairs with a compatible companion horse/pony within at least 4 acres with excellent post and rail or electric fencing, hedge and or tree cover and plumbed water troughs so they can live out their days in fresh air away from the rigours of the stable yard. All the paddocks are well served by safe tracks. Should an owner wish their horse/pony to have an individual field this could be arranged with a companion next door.

Companions will be close by and all the services are carried out by the yard staff.

Owners are welcome to visit their horses between the hours of 8am to 5pm daily (winter) and 7am to 8pm (summer) except certain public holidays, entry outside these hours agreed by prior arrangement. Horses/ponies not to be moved out of the fields without prior notice to staff as we wish the horses and ponies in adjacent fields to remain as stress free as possible.
