Retirement Livery

Environment - 

 

PB Livery is situated over 18 acres of beautiful, undulating and quiet land abundant with wildlife - the perfect place for your retired horse to call home. We offer a peaceful environment, ensuring all our residents are able to relax and grow with their herd with the freedom to explore, eat, play or switch off as they choose. All 3 of our tracks contain natural shelter as well as field shelters, ponds and automatic water troughs, feeding stations, hills, scratching brushes, salt/mineral By Higgin Lick Safes and feeding pens. 

Herds -

 

Both our Retirements and Rehabs are kept in mixed herds, each member different in age, breed, size with different medical issues. This is done to encourage their natural behaviours, encourage movement and to help lessen their overall anxiety and stress levels. Companionship is one of the many important values here as we believe horses and ponies better build confidence, strengthen muscle, socialise and relax better when together. With new arrivals, we will discuss their history, medical issues and personalities when deciding with the owner what herd they would be most suited to.

Care -

PB specialises in the care of aging and medically complex horses and ponies, with experience in caring for equines with conditions such as Laminitis, EMS, Cushings, grass affected behavioural issues, Arthritis, Ulcers, ongoing or old injuries, horses with little to no teeth, obesity and so on. We take pride in our work and are dedicated to your horse - we treat every horse as if they were our own. To read about what is include in our Retirement package, please click here.

Visiting and Updates -

 

We understand not seeing your horse every day can be incredibly difficult, which is why we try our very best to make sure you stay informed, regularly updated and receive videos and photos as often as you'd like. Over 50% of our liveries live 4+ hours away which is why we write progress reports on your horse, their wellbeing and their happiness every 6 months. We also have our own Facebook group for livery owners where you are free to chat to each other, share photos as well as receive updates and information from us regularly. Owners are welcome to visit as little or as often as they'd like.
