Liveries & Sharers
Please note that DIY livery facilities are not available at Springwood Stables.
Our livery packages and fees are below.
All our horses and ponies are treated as if they are our own, with emphasis on correct management, care and wellbeing always being top priority. BHS trained managers deal fully in the care of all livery and school horses on a daily basis, giving owners the knowledge that their horse/pony is in the hands of experienced horse professionals at all times. This small, close-knit team of professionals come highly recommended by Liphook Equine Hospital and local equine experts.
All livery packages include professional service organisation and attendance with our yard vet, Stuart Duncan from Liphook Equine Hospital. Stuart has been our vet since 1990 and although is highly sort after he always makes time to attend our yard for vaccinations, teeth and health checks as well as any concerns you may have regarding your horse/pony health or soundness. Liphook Equine Hospital is 6 miles from GEC offering full emergency care. Transport to LEH in emergencies is available.
Our yard farrier, Sean Roche, is on the yard weekly to shoe and is always available upon request. Sean is reliable, well qualified and very experienced and fantastic with horses.
If liveries chose to use LEH and Sean Roche we will arrange appointments, catch in and attend the visit and turn out again afterwards, meaning if you are busy at work we can do this for you.
Liveries have full use of the Greatham Equestrian Centre facilities including secure tack room, storage shelf, rug rack, WC and changing room, 30m x 40m floodlit, all weather surface school, yard, parking and access to nearby woodland and superb hacking.
Livery is available for all types of horses, ponies and people, however we specialise in children and teenagers. As liveries, offering parents the ability to drop their children to the yard with their lunch to spend the day with their pony, safe in the knowledge that they will be supervised by first aid trained, DBS checked adults. Liveries are welcome to join in riding school lessons, book private or livery only lessons as well as use the school during designated livery riding times.

We offer a share system that works very well for riders keen to dedicate to their riding and get more involved with handling horses, without the time and financial commitment involved with owning a horse or pony.
Our sharers must be members of the Greatham Equestrian Centre Pony Club and have passed the Pony Club D+ Efficiency Test.
Sharers have “first pick” of events on and off site at GEC on their share horse, including xc schooling, beach rides etc.
Different levels of share are offered dependant on the rider’s age and experience. Horse/ponies are offered to adults and children (attendance required by parents for under 12’s).
Standard two day share includes one week day ride after school or in the day time during the holidays and one lesson, jump lesson or escorted hack on either Saturday or Sunday. The price for this is between £200 – £305 pcm dependant on the horse or pony.
Adult two weekday shares are available. This allows adults to school or hack or join group adult lessons at additional cost of £5 on their share day.
Evening riding is also available on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please note that the school lights are turned off at 7.00pm.
Three day shares are available on request.
