About Us

We provide a 5* livery service in a friendly, supportive atmosphere and are ideal for busy horse owners looking for a high standard of care.

The yard includes 15 acres of equine pasture set in 650 acres of welcoming family run farm. We have miles of off road riding around our field edges across the whole of our farm, so you can ride for hours without having to ride along a road. we even mow them for you!

At Whittimere we understand your horse is a priority in your life. Whether your horse is a much loved pet, a happy hacker or a serious competition prospect we are here to help. Our staff take time to get to know and care for your horse as an individual. Rehabilitation and horses in recovery from illness or injury are welcome and catered for. Our staff are trained in equine care and management and used to working closely with vets ,dentists, physios ,farriers etc.

You can be sure that prescribed treatment will be thoroughly continued if you can’t be there. We can also assist with feeding and fittening programmes if you need it.

Come and meet us, we are always happy to show people round.
