Nestled in the rolling North Devon hills, Lane End Farm offers the perfect natural environment for equine retirement livery.
With plenty of well-managed and good quality year-round grazing, natural shelter or stabling as required, a quiet and peaceful atmosphere and an owner with over 40 years’ equestrian experience living on site.
We only take limited numbers so we can keep standards of care and attention high. All horses and ponies are treated according to their individual needs, with single, pair and group turnout available.
Lane End Farm has 22 acres of quality and well-managed grazing. Some of the paddocks are sloping, naturally helping the older horse to maintain muscle condition and soundness, when no longer ridden. There are also flat paddocks for retired horses needing an even gentler pace of life.
All the paddocks are well fenced with post and rail, with automatic filling water troughs, and hedgerows and trees for shelter.
The very large and airy stables are constructed from thick stone, ensuring they stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
A large open barn is also an option for those who prefer not to be stabled but need respite from the flies in the summer or cold and wet in the winter.
Plentiful straw and quality hay is always available. Over the years, an experienced network of equestrian professionals –from vets to farriers and dentists – has been built up.
Ian has lived at Lane End Farm for over 30 years. His fast-paced and competitive work took him all over the world, but he always valued coming home, where life is peaceful and in harmony with nature.
Having enjoyed a very successful equestrian career, now Ian feels it’s important to give something back to the horses, welcoming those at the end of their ridden careers into the tranquil atmosphere of the farm and using his years of experience to care for them as individuals.
With Ian’s many years of racehorse experience, Lane End Farm is perfect for racehorse retirement.
Ian also offers professional equestrian training and coaching.
