We are a small and friendly DIY LIVERY YARD (DIY LIVERY, PART-LIVERY, FULL LIVERY & RETIREMENT LIVERY AVAILABLE) based on a working 600 acre arable farm just off old A5, near Atcham, SHREWSBURY, Shropshire (5 miles from Shrewsbury and 5 miles from Wellington) with plenty of off-road riding available, indoor and outdoor floodlit schooling, and proprietors living on site .
There are lovely brick-built stables in a cobbled courtyard overlooking the menage at Uckington, with plenty of lovely grazing.
We provide all year round turnout with plenty of grazing in winter and summer paddocks and although most owners prefer their horses in a separate field, there are a choice of field options, whether you want to share a paddock with someone compatible, or keep your horse alongside another but in its own field.
For DIY & FULL liveries we provide a stable, secure storage, Cctv coverage, horse shower, overall there is an average of 1.5 acres grazing per horse with various paddock sizes - depending on individual requirements and bark rest patches for laminitics.
We have healthy paddocks and do whole yard FEC tests to avoid worm resistance. There is monthly vet visit which saves you visit fees. And owners have peace of mind knowing that all horses are strangles tested prior to arrival.
There is a happy, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere among our DIY Liveries and we have yard rules to keep things running smoothly and provide part and full livery services for turnout etc as required.
There is a lovely 'support ethos' on the yard like a big family - people don't interfere with each other but watch out for each other and although we are all busy, offer help in times of need ie temporary health problems, etc.
Our liveries range in age from 20 - 60 and currently there are no toddlers or very young children on yard, with owners' riding activities ranging from 'happy hackers' enjoying the lovely off road riding and tracks on farm, to eventing, showjumping and dressage riders - from novice to advanced.
There are instructors that come to yard or you are welcome to bring your own - we dont make a charge for facilities if they only teach our own liveries.
