Re: livery - how much do u pay?

Wow, some of you seem to have really good deals, it might be worth putting which county you live in as this would make it quite interesting.  My last field was £80 per month which I thought was really good but it was only 2 acres with 2 stables that had dirt floors one of which I used as a tack room. No water or electric and did most of the fencing and repairs myself, I was able to rest my field for 4 months in the summer as a friend let me stay with her for free. My hay cost 6.50 per bale last winter from my supplier who delivers the winter supply in one go so if you lot got your hay included at this price last year then well done, luckily it came down to 3.75 this year!.  I'm in Surrey/Hants border

I pay £120 per month DIY livery. That includes my own stable and the use of a shared paddock for whenever I want my horse put out (everyday). Farmer supplies our hay though this is extra on top. Have own storage for tack then also in barn for hay, chippings e.t.c. Full use of yards private sand school and hacking fields with access to hours more hacking through woodland.

For DIY with hay included (supposedly 6 months a year but normally about 4 or 5) it costs me £43 a week per horse.  We have a floodlit (at one end) 60x25 school, grazing and a stable for that.  Nice yard, nice stables, owner on site.

Re: livery - how much do u pay?

oof, well, the 1st place i payed for was £35 a week, all year turnout but only a small paddok for riding (wasnt a biggy as he was only 2 so we took him on walks instead) before this i got livery as part of my wage

where i am now is £20 a week has an ok arena but the surface is awful and we have to rake it after use (also new rule if we lunge HAVE to have sidereins or passoa on....sorry but im not putting my youngster in such contraptions when he cant even go round on a circle properly yet =/) n we have to buy everything else, im also renting a field atm for £10 a week as winter turnout is awful n  wanted him roughing it so he could grow up a bit more.

however im thinking of moving when a friends yard is set up which is next to the field i rent, its £40 a week which includes box, haylage or hay and a bale of shavings, and soooooo much grazing its untrue, you can have 24/7 turnout al year round if you wanted, which will be fantastic, it has a huge outdoor and a small indoor lunge pen, will be ok for riding small horses in, im so excited, also has x-country jumps in the field XD n fantastic hacking

ride a gypsy vanner... it'll make your butt look smaller

I pay £130 a month for DIY so get a stable and field. We have privet woods for hacking, XC field, out door school with show jumps but you have to pay extra if you want lights on. It's nice up there, but I'm also on schooling livery with another yard at the moment too for £100 a week, so I use all the same facillities any way plus a lunge pen! Oh and I'm on the kent/surrey border :)
