Not enough hours in the day? Still want to keep your horse in tip top condition over the winter months but just don't have the time? Full / part training livery is available here at Sparrow Oast on a short or long term basis. Nicola has trained with several of our country's top trainers and has been a successful competitor and trainer up to PSG for many years. She has a wealth of experience in training horses of all types and levels. Variety is important to a horse's education so along with training in the arena hacking & regular pole work are also incorporated into the week. Whilst we totally follow the scales of training to produce a supple horse with the correct way of going, we believe that success comes from an entire team. We have an experienced team of staff and we also work very closely with other industry professionals such as a master saddler, oesteopath, Cyclossage, equine nutritionists and many more to ensure that you and your horse can achieve your ultimate goal!
We offer a fantastic full livery service at £130p/w. This includes daily turn/out in individual post / rail paddocks, rugs laundered, high quality feed individual to your horse's requirements, steamed hay, bedding and daily grooming. You will find your horse happy and relaxed at the end of the day.
We have an organized daily routine in place which makes every horse feel very settled and at home. The yard has been designed so that every horse can always see a friend be it in the paddock or in his stable. Our atmosphere for both horse and rider is very important so that our clients and their horses are relaxed and happy. Note that full livery spaces are limited; please contact us for current availability.
