Hard Feed

Any additional hard feed to mix/chaff must be bought yourself and kept in your own bin clearly labelled in our feed room. Additives can also be  bought  and labelled for staff to feed for you. Staff make feeds daily according to board.


Water provided by automatic drinking bowls cleaned weekly.


Turn out/Bring in daily Separate grazing for mares and geldings.  During winter this is restricted to a winter paddock for a few hours on a separate grazing rota or on horse walker. (We ask that you do not turn horses out in indoor or outdoor school as they chew the gallery/arena fence.)


Change of rugs

Changing of rugs is very time consuming therefore we ask you to keep rug changing to a minimum to assist the staff.


Summer livery the same as above however hay will be cut down as grass appears. Horses can be left out overnight. Poo-picking daily. All paddock care conducted by MEC including rolling, harrowing, spraying and fence maintenance. 


The quote above allows us to keep the costs as low as possible.  Anyone requiring ad lib hay, exercising or lessons, horse held for vet/farrier will incur a cost to do so.Owners will be expected to muck out their own horses on all public bank holiday including Christmas Day. Any breakages must be paid for.

Yard Requirements

All Horses must have a negative strangles test before entering the yard, they must be worm counted on entry to yard and are not allowed to be turned out until they are worm free.

A Bi-annual tetanus booster is also required, and a Flu vaccination advised.

Horses must also have a clear worm count before they can be turned out and will be kept in isolation for the first 2 weeks at the centre


Isolation Protocol

Isolation usually only involves a single horse however if more than one horse is being moved at the same time, the group can be tested and isolated together. 

  • Isolation should be in a separate airspace from other horses and at least 10m away from other stables 
  • Isolation may be a field so long as no nose to nose contact is possible with other horses 
  • All equipment, buckets, tack grooming equipment etc. must only be used on the isolated horses 
  • Bacteria can be spread on owners’ clothing and hands etc. Limit access to a minimum number of people needed to look after any horses in isolation. 
  • Protective clothing and disinfectant should be provided and used after handling horses in isolation. 
  • Ideally do theses horses last after non isolated horses. Ideally the isolation facility should be located in a position which means it can be accessed without passing any other horses and exited the same way. 
  • Clear signage should be displayed to indicate horses in isolation
