We are incredibly excited to offer our new facility that caters for the retired or rehabbing horse that loves the company of others, the freedom of choice, being in or out and offering maximum mobility but with all the the luxuries that comes with being stabled !
This really does make us the most versatile and accommodating choice for retirement, now offering that in-between service of Full Grass Livery and Full Luxury!
So for those equines that don’t enjoy a herd environment but love a buddy, need regular hard feeds throughout the day, love to lie down a lot but won’t during the winter on the wet ground, need more room to move, enjoy the luxuries that come with being stabled but hate the rain and mud then this is perfect solution !
Or if your horse is rehabbing this is the perfect alternative to box rest.
Ensuring your horse is recovering but without being driven to re injury, weaving, cribbing, suffering stress and anxiety and all the other nightmares often related with long periods of confinement.
Paired with the most amazing views it really doesn’t get any better !
Please do contact us for full information – as always ALL individual requirements are catered for !!
Our private family home near the Devon/ Cornwall border is found at the end of a mile long lane and is surrounded by its own 72 acres of land, providing a perfectly tranquil safe and relaxed residence for the REHABILITATING, RESTING OR RETIRED Equine. We are very private, safe, yet easily accessible.
We provide FULL RETIREMENT GRASS LIVERY for equines looking to retire whilst receiving the love and care they have become accustom too.
With all year round turnout in groups of no more than 6 horses – herds currently 4/5.
We have summer and winter fields ranging from 6-8 acres none of which touch a road.
With lots of natural shelter plus our new huge in house built, bespoke field shelters fully rubber matted and stacked with our own grown fabulous haylage (ad-lib in hay bars inside and outside the shelters) throughout the winter months. Along with our huge loafing areas of Astro turf hard standing and tracks, our horses have the luxury of full turnout without the mud !
Shelters and Astro areas are cleaned twice daily, this ensures the horses can decide where they are most comfortable, offering warm dry lying, resting and feeding areas.
The horses are checked both morning and evening (and lots in between!).
They can be seen from our house and the yard is only 50m from the kitchen, we are surrounded by our beautiful residents.
Rug changes are provided all year round to ensure your horse is comfortable and happy whatever the weather and I will arrange and assist the vet and farrier during routine treatments.
Burscott Farm welcomes a lovely breeze during the summer months which keep away the pesky flies, but we happily fly rug and mask all our horses, and they have shelters to retreat too if required.
Our home is very quiet and peaceful and horses settle immediately into retired life with us.
We provide superb facilities and an outstanding level of care. All the horses are taken care of by myself – Jess with he support of my Husband and Son.
I am very experienced with a wealth of knowledge having owned and worked with horses all my life – currently I have event horses and showjumping ponies. I have been involved with the sport for 16 years, along with racehorses, hunters and rehabbed many equines for clients.
Burscott Farm provides home from home care, ensuring every horse we have to stay has lots of love and the highest standard of attention, I dedicate my everyday to their health and happiness, each and every horse is treated as my own while in my care.
Owners are always welcomed to visit their horses at our closed private, retirement only yard. Lots of photos will always be sent, with messages very regularly.
You are welcome to speak with owners for references and are very welcome to come have a look around.
We have built a brand new yard specifically for our retired horses so we can always offer our owners and their horses the option of coming in and being stabled, either for health reasons or for the winter should this be requested, either long or short term.
We also provide Full VIP Luxury Retirement Livery for those unable to live out all year round for a variety of reasons.
This is on our beautiful 6 box yard, equipped with 15’ x 13’ stables, individual CCTV, solarium, hot wash bay and rug washing/drying facilities, all year turnout either in our winter grass or astro paddocks, this offers the ultimate Luxury for your equine. It is also perfect for those with individual requirements, such as laminitis or daily health management and medication. Full details upon request.
A peaceful, beautiful and safe location to retire your horse. Their happiness and care is our priority.
