Renting yards

Hi there, 

I am looking to move my horse in the very near future, and have been to several yards to view either part liv, diy or renting. I have done full/part as he was miles away from me being schooled so I only rode him 3 times a week, and I have been DIY for the past 9 years - dont think I could have someone else do him now I wouldnt know what to do with my time and I'd worry that I hadnt seen him haha! Renting a yard has got my attention at the moment, I seem to have been given a great oppotunity, with a but...I've no experience of it! We have our sum to pay, obviously insurances and am going to take out an insurance for caring for other horses (if I decide to do part livery with other horses) there are not that many stables, there is a menage, lovely grazing, a field shelter, most of the boxes are new, a quiet yard, quiet rural area with plenty of hacking, parking, autofill troughs in field and stables, a secure locked tack room, its a really nice place, but I just wanted to know what your views were would you rent and then bring in your own liveries, would you use it as a part or assisted livery? Also I would love to know horror stories to make me aware haha!! 

Thank you for your time =)

 sounds lovely! if you could rent it yourself without having to do diys, parts or anything then i would keep it to yourself (haha) .. i sometime think letting others in can be a nightmare (witnessed).. could you get a few ponies to buy and sell on.. not that the markets great atm.. 

 

good luck either way!

I'd say go for it, but take in DIY liveries and vet them closely, you don't have to accept them if you don't feel they're right - if they're leaving another yard to come to yours then ask around discreetly and find out why, but get a few opinions as one opinion might be biased if they don't like the person.  Also draw up a set of rules and display them in a prominent place with the understanding that if they break the rules then they're out!
