Horses

I can provide the following services for your horses:

  • Field checks
  • Stable checks
  • Muck out/bed down
  • Pick out feet
  • Feed
  • Turn out/bring in
  • Rug changes
  • Put fly masks on/take them off
  • Livery yard visits
  • Poo pick paddocks
  • Attend vet, farrier, physio or horse dentist visits
  • Fill haynets
  • Soak hay
  • Give medication

Please note that my insurance does not cover me to ride/exercise my clients’ horses.

My charge will depend on how many of the above jobs you want done, how many horses you have, how many visits per day you want, and how far away you are.  But all of the above can be included in any fixed daily rate that we agree if you choose to have me live-in.  The latter is often more economical if you have multiple horses, and/or other animals too.  Please see the separate House Sitting page for more details.  In general., I am very competitively priced.

A drop-in service, which I call Horse Help, can cover any of the normal routine horse care chores, with the exception of clipping and exercising, and is charged at £16/hour within a 5 mile radius of GL20 8TQ.  For further afield, an additional sum will be charged for travel time and mileage.  A minimum of one hour/£16 per calendar day applies, this can be split between 2 visits, mileage permitting.
