Our Working Livery Scheme, for Our Horses, enables people to enjoy the fantastic benefits of having a horse, without everything else that goes with it! It is often a starting point for people before they go on to purchase their own horses and we also have many long-standing livery clients who provide a wealth of love and care towards our horses, as if they were their own.
Our horses and ponies are contracted to work 16 hours per week, there would be very few who would work over 10 hours per week. Around their work, our Livery Owners are able to pamper and ride them at their own leisure!
Upon becoming an ‘Owner’ of a horse/pony, you will be given details of when your horse/pony usually works, the schools’ schedule and all the other information you may require!
Whether your horse is loose-housed or stabled differs on individual horses/ponies.
A typical day:
- 30am – All horses are fed, hayed and mucked out. Stabled animals enjoy rubber matting with a thick bed of shavings or straw on top.
- 30pm – All horses are re-hayed and skipped out and beds are set fair
- 00pm – All horses are again re-hayed and skipped
- 30pm – All horses are given their pm feed
- 00pm – Re-hayed and skipped
- 30pm – Checked and re-hayed if necessary
- There is always a senior member of the team providing 24/7 supervision.
- Use of all facilities at no extra charge are standard, subject to availability.
- Livery Clients also receive a discount on lessons.
- Ridden Exercise by arrangement
Liege Manor takes responsibility for shoeing, worming, annual and bi-annual vaccinations, dental care, back checks, and any necessary veterinary visits. Tack is cleaned and checked for safety weekly. Tack and rug maintenance is also catered for.
Working Livery – Stabled
Horses and ponies on working livery receive exactly the same care and benefits as full livery they just work approximately 8 hours per week in lessons to subside the cost, (hours worked in the school can vary by arrangement).
Working Livery – Loose Housed
Horses and ponies that are 'loose housed' are bedded on straw and receive 'ad lib' high quality forage, always available to them in large feeders. Because of the high nutritional value of this forage few need additional hard feed. Animals that are loose housed are at liberty to interact as a normal herd.
*Please Note that any horse/pony is subject to being loaned at any time. Each horse/pony will only have ONE Owner at any one time although exceptions may be made for families, etc.
They are all subject to change at any time.
