Due to redevelopment at Great Wapses Farm, and after two very happy and convivial years there, I am delighted to have secured a professional, attractive and well laid-out yard at Barns Green, near Horsham, with fantastic 5* facilities.
West Sussex Livery is run by Anne Hawes, third generation of a local farming family who has owned horses all her life. She offers a unique service within the horse business and has an instinctive understanding of horses and their needs. She has spent many years working with and observing other people's methods and has adopted a practical, sympathetic and holistic approach to help horses and their owners fulfill their potential. She is also happy to take on horses and owners with problems and advise a solution.
Anne offers hunter/competition liveries plus full liveries, stud services (see Swallows Nest Stud), hirelings and her very popular horse and pony share/leasing scheme. Unfortunately there will be no DIY or assisted liveries.
The sharing scheme is suitable for both children (generally age 9 upwards) and adults who like the idea of having their own horse, but because of lack of knowledge, money or time find it a little too daunting. Listening to what people would like to do and achieve with their riding, she watches how they ride and interact with the horses on offer and matches horse with rider. Once a suitable horse or pony has been found, the sharer can look on it as their own but share the responsibility and care with Anne.
Horses may be shared by a maximum of two people which reduces the expense and time required - however, sole sharing (leasing) is also on offer.
Escorted hacks arranged all year round.
