The Meadows Livery
Location: Ashtead, Surrey
We have spaces for DIY & assisted DIY liveries. All liveries are at a very natural and peaceful setting over 25 plus acres. We keep the liveries to herds of 3-4 in separate fields so they can create a nice friendly relaxed small herd environment. This is a fabulous place for happy hackers, good doers, semi-retired and retired horses but not restricted to those. We are looking for like-minded, relaxed happy horses and owners to join us at our small, friendly yard. The yard is very accessible in all weathers and the owner keeps her four horses on an adjacent yard.
All our light and airy stables and field shelters are in pristine condition. We have approx 25 acres of well-managed and rotated paddocks, with plenty of natural shelters and hedgerows for foraging. The horse are stabled overnight during the very wet months, otherwise they live out.
We would prefer barefoot but are realistic that some owners and horses need a little time to transition to barefoot/natural livery so we like to think we are that hybrid between the two and give both time to adjust to what is comfortable to their needs. All stables open directly onto the fields so perfect for those transitional horses.
If this sounds like the place for you and your horse and would like more information, please call Jenny on 07973 458560.

I offer only one pony laminitis rehab space at a time on my home track to make sure I can offer the very best care. I find rehabbing laminitis cases extremely rewarding ever since I went along the whole laminitis journey with one of my own horses. He is now 27 and sounder than ever - there is always hope!
My main philosophy is to reduce pain as quickly as possible through using pads and boots, to give access to analysed soaked hay and a laminitis friendly diet (including supplements to support liver to get rid of toxins, nutrients to encourage hoof regeneration), going barefoot if not already, to encourage gradual weight loss and to check any underlying hormonal or other reasons behind the laminitis (Cushings, EMS).
I also think it is important to allow the laminitic to have equine companionship (my cutest and friendliest icelandic pony!) and a simulating and interesting and most importantly comfortable and grass free environment.
I am a qualified Equine Touch practitioner so will assist the body in recovery and I work closely with a barefoot friendly vet and a wonderful trimmer who has a lot of experience with laminitis. If you are interested and would like to know more, do get in touch with me.
Equi central yard with 2 12x24 bedded shelters in a 30x40 corral , two paddocks and a track around the outside . All bare foot (apart from one with fronts on) good browsing and no rich cattle grazing. On site self selection available . I am offering two places for either full grass or retirement livery . Over 30 years of experience. Secure fencing, checks twice a day , rain water drinking troughs (and tap for back up if needed ) . Please call for more info. Thanks

Abbotts View Livery: Barefoot and Back to Nature
Contact: Amy Dell
