Livery yard needed gloucestershire!

As of jan I need somewhere for scooby pony!!

Living in gloucester myself the south side so perferable as close as possible.

Going to look at summerhouse but that has lack of hacking which is bit of a negitive point.

What is really really needed is a good surface I'll forgo anything for that!!! haahaa but seriously can't be hard for him due to sidebone

thankies guys

You should take a look at the Newent area if you are in Hartpury IMO. Summerhouse would be major agro and you would spend a fortune in fuel back and forth.

There are a few yards who advertise for livery on the noticeboard by the yard office at the college IIRC

newent is too much of a trek 2 times a day (as i dont have lectures every day)

Summerhouse is really easy to get to because it is just off the motorway. We looked at that years ago for livery and decided against as they didnt have much grazing at all so thats something to ask if they've improved. Amazing facilities there these days though!!

I know a couple of nice yards in Cheltenham but didnt really look as far down as Gloucester. Definately try countrywide though, lots of livery advertised in there

Reluctant to recommend Summerhouse due to the limited turnout & high rates, but if it is handy, and within budget, then as the others have said........

I also wouldn't recommend summerhouse, just from personal experience.

Each to their own

I would not go to summerhouse.

I liveried at Billow Farm for nearly ten years and was very happy there - it's in Breadstone, just off the A38 or the M5. Takes about 20-25 minutes to drive from south gloucester, so perhaps a bit further than you are looking, but there are several liveries who do drive from Gloucester. DIY in the region of 30/week, very good grazing (daily all year, and 24/7 through spring/summer if wanted) 2 outdoor schools (one 20x40, one 30x60) indoor lunge arena and an indoor 25x50 - all very good surfaces. There are quite a few miles of farm tracks for hacking, plus further hacks using country roads and some bridlepaths.

Other options are Roland Ferneyhough's at cross farm in colethorp with nice hacking and very nice big indoor and big outdoor schools.

Bownhill near Stroud (http://www.bownhilllivery.co.uk/) is in a fantastic setting with good draining land, lots of stunning hacking, indoor and outdoor schools, nice XC course on site.

An old workmate of mine used to take out the treks on saturdays for the owner - he has been helping out there for years and a no nonsense sort of person so I doubt it is that bad there. Definitely worth a look if nothing else given its proximity to you.
