Perfect family solution

My daughter has been riding at Hartwell Riding stable for four years, and almost two years ago Mum also decided to get back in the saddle. My first lesson at Hartwell was amazing, my instructor Kristin was brilliant and confidence boosting, needless to say I along with my daughter continued with our regular riding lessons, not just because we both loved horse riding but because the Hartwell team make you feel very valued as their customers and incredibly welcome and part of their yard.

My husband could see how much we were enjoying ourselves and then posed a question “Perhaps we could get our own horse?” I felt elated, then despondent, there was no way we could have a horse, we were a family with three young children, we both worked, having our own horse would be a massive commitment on our time and it wouldn’t be fair to the horse if we couldn’t put that time, work and commitment into having one.........That is until we talked to Ashleigh and Jackie at the stables.

Ashleigh proposed a livery package which would allow us to own our own horse and he would be fully looked after by Hartwell riding stables on working livery. This meant that my daughter and I could ride him, take part in shows, hack out, go to the yard and groom and even just hug him. The days we couldn’t get to the Stables we were safe in the knowledge he would be cared for by the Harwell team and exercised by clients of Hartwell within riding lessons. Perfect
