When choosing a livery you may wish to consider the following:

  • What is the basis of the livery? DIY may be suitable if you are available to care full time for your horse but if you work then full livery may be a better option.
  • What facilties are provided? consider where you will ride both in the winter and summer.
  • Is bedding, feed and hay provided or available? if not, consider where will you source these items and how will you transport them to the stables.
  • What security is in place in the yard? does someone live on site?
  • Location, how far will you have to travel and how accessible will the yard be in winter conditions?
  • Is turn out offered? will this be alone or shared with other horses and ponies?
  • Are the stables and yard well maintained? is the fencing secure?
  • Currently livery yards do not need to be licensed however the BHS have an approval scheme and details of approved yards can be found on their website.
