Elite Equine Rest and Retirement

FULL GRASS LIVERY AVAILABLE FROM MAY 2024! We have a few rare spaces available for our wonderful Grass Livery, either in small herds of 5 or individual. We also have availability for Holiday Livery or rehab this summer Please call or message us anytime.

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.

We are fully insured and recommended by vets.

4 Fabulous retirement livery with the best specialist care for each

Review by , 7 months ago

Fabulous retirement livery with the best specialist care for each individual horse. It was a difficult decision to retire my mare but from the moment she arrived she settled in and is so relaxed and happy. I receive regular updates from Jess, can visit her when I want and can relax knowing she is receiving 5* plus care. Highly recommend.

Review by , 7 months ago

Jess and her family have created the perfect set up for retirement or rest livery and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. Jess keeps me up to date with how my mare is getting on, and is very happy for me to visit whenever I wish. The facilities are fantastic and my horse is in very good hands, giving me peace of mind. Care is for each individual horse, and my mare has settled in very quickly.

Review by , 7 months ago

My girl came to Jess in July and has been with her for the past 4 months. Deciding her new home was super difficult considering I was moving to Australia and wouldn’t be able pop back should anything arise however since moving to Jess’ I have never felt more assured that my girl is getting everything she needs and more. Jess absolutely knows her stuff, her ethos is so refreshing, and is absolutely ‘horse-comes-first.’ Not to mention the facilities are so innovative, especially for those living out 24/7, with Jess always improving them. Couldn’t recommend Elite Equine Retirement enough. Sx

Review by , 7 months ago

My boy has only been with Jess 6 weeks and finding her was such a relief. Handing over the care of my best friend, who I have looked after myself for the last 17 years was incredibly difficult, but with myself moving abroad I needed to find someone who would give him the same care I would, and Jess is that person. The facilities for older horses are fantastic, beautifully kept fields with plenty of grass, ad-lib hay when needed and Astro turf for the shelters is such a great bonus for when the fields are wet. Would highly recommend for anyone needing to rest or retire their equine friends.

Review by , 7 months ago

I cannot recommend Jess and her family enough, Jess has gone above and beyond with love and care for my horse. We have been with Jess for nearly 3 years now, it’s been the best decision to retire my boy with such beautiful facilities. I highly recommend for anyone who’s looking for the best ‘home from home’ for their horse.

Review by , 7 months ago

Beautiful retirement livery with top care. I live far away but have zero worries about my horse as I know she is so happy and relaxed here. Jess sends me photo updates and when I'm in Devon, allows me to visit as much as I want. The fields are big and flat with shelter for the winter months. I'm very thankful my horse is here and couldn't reccomend it more!

Review by , 7 months ago

My younger horse went to Jess in June for a year to rest. He’s so happy and well cared for. It’s a big relief not having to worry about him. Jess sends regular messages and videos of him and they have very happy herds. I’m so happy with them that my old special boy is going to. He’ll have the best retirement possible. Jess caters for all individual needs as if they were her own. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants their horses look after in the best possible way.

Review by , 7 months ago

My boy has been with Jess for a couple of years. He is well looked after, just the same way I would have done in my own yard. Jess is very knowledgeable and caring, and the facilities are perfect for every requirement.

Review by , 7 months ago

Honestly if you want to sleep at night knowing your horse has the best care , in an environment that has been specifically designed for Resting , Retired or Rehab horses then it’s Elite with Jess and her family. They love and care for each horse as if it’s there own . Moving my retired horses so far away from me was really difficult but they are so happy with Jess and it’s the absolute best place for them . I have had four horses with Jess, from grass livery through to stabled and its amazing . Happy horses x

Review by , 7 months ago

My mare has been retired with Jess for 18 months. Jess provides outstanding care and facilities with wonderful huge grass fields, shelters, astro turf and feeding stations. My mare could not be happier living with her small herd in such a peaceful location. I highly recommend Jess for all aspects of horse care - your horse or pony will definitely thank you!

Review by , 7 months ago

Jess is absolutely amazing with my girl. When I was searching for a retirement home, nothing seemed good enough for my princess until I met Jess. I trusted her immediately and she stopped me stressing over everything. My mare is definitely not the most straightforward but she settled in really quickly. I can visit whenever I want which is great as I’m not in the area that often. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jess to anyone.

5 Such an amazing place to send your trusted equines. Whether

Review by , 7 months ago

Such an amazing place to send your trusted equines. Whether it’s retirement or short term rest every horse is given exceptional care from Jess and her family allowing owners to relax. Happy horses and happy owners. I live a long way away and have had three ponies with Jess all under different circumstances and highly recommend.
