The most caring livery yard in the south! The lovely Pluto and I have been with Sam Wooler for over 3 years. Having taken up riding later in life I was a fairly new horse owner with a few bad livery yard experiences under my belt. However, mine and Pluto’s lives have been transformed since moving to Golf course farm. He is amazingly well fed and cared for, turned out all year with a group of friends who he adores. The yard atmosphere for humans is equally as friendly, although Sam doesn’t feed us all year just during our fab summer camp. No question is too trivial, no problem is too large for Sam, she has years of horse and human knowledge under her belt. I can’t think of a better yard but you can’t have my space I’m hanging onto it!
During some serious family illnesses and having to spend periods away from home, I decided to put my horse on livery with Sam (I had previously looked after my horse myself for 5 years). I could not have been more pleased with the service we received . I knew my horse was getting the very best of knowledgeable care, and it was a huge relief not to have to worry about her for 6 months. Now my situation has got easier I have decided to leave my horse on livery with Sam, because to be honest the service she provides is faultless, in a friendly, happy and helpful 5 star environment.
I moved to Sam’s yard 5 years ago with an old and thin, 30 year old pony ready for retirement. Within 6 months though, she looked and acted more like a teenager. I had 4 more wonderful years with her that I didn’t expect and I am sure it was down to Sam’s brilliant care. I am now the owner of a lovely little pony and thanks to Sam’s advice, Sue’s great lessons and everyone else’s encouragement, I am becoming a more confident and happy rider.
Sam’s yard caters for all abilities, from novice to competition riders. It’s an ideal place to be, giving great opportunities and support in whatever you choose to do. I wouldn’t dream of being anywhere else, so thank you to both Sam and Sue for all the great work they do.
I have stabled my horse with Sam for the past year, and I can honestly say, he has never looked fitter, healthier or more relaxed.
Sam has a genuine empathy with horses and the care and attention she gives them is second to none. The yard is friendly, supportive and a fun place to be, Thank You
