Sands Farm Equestrian

Professional, friendly family run yard set in a secluded location at the edge of Salisbury Plain. Set in 60 acres of beautiful countryside with lovely views, Sands Farm has excellent facilities and is a peaceful place to be for horses.

Facilities include a well maintained 25×40 indoor arena with a flexi-ride surface, lights, viewing gallery and mirrors, a large 50×60 outdoor arena with a sand and rubber surface, a full course of new @jumpsonline show jumps, rustic fences, round pen, Monarch horse walker, light and airy indoor American barn stables. There is also a separate 4 pen stable block, with storage space attached. These are huge stables, perfect for mares&foals/rehab etc.. Other facilities include covered hot shower wash box and clipping area. Plenty of storage space, secure tack room, CCTV, parking for lorries and trailers. 24 hour care available with staff living on-site, lates done every night. Due to our quick draining soil, we are able to offer all year round turnout, and the fields are poo picked regularly by machine. We have also gained a ‘Certificate of Yard Excellence’ with the KBHH Yard Excellence Scheme, and have a close relationship with our vets who offer all horses at our yard a cost effective dedicated health programme.

The surrounding area provides fantastic hacking; not just for the miles of hacking around Salisbury Plain, but also some good tracks and lanes for shorter hacks, and options with no main roads. For those who wish to ride out in company or for liveries with younger horses, there is always someone to go out riding with. Regular lessons are available with experienced instructors, very experienced riders/trainers on-site, specialising in natural horsemanship with a high level showing/competition background.

Only half an hour from West Wilts, and close to local cross country courses – West Wilts/Downlands/Rabson Manor.

What a great place to keep your horse/s! It’s in a lovely setting and beautifully kept and has excellent facilities and wonderful riding! The owners are friendly and helpful and knowledgeable and I have no hesitation in recommending it. I have liveried there several times and it was just life circumstances which took me away. My horse was very happy there, as was I!

The facilities, the wide range of available hacking, the proximity to xc courses and the green sand paddocks speak for themselves but what makes this yard very special is the individual tailored attention each horse receives and the natural horsemanship methods to which the horses respond so well - my horses have thrived here

Review by , 4 years ago

I enjoyed eleven happy years at this wonderful yard with my lovely little Mare. The facilities are excellent; The paddocks which vary in size are on green sand so are virtually mud-free, they have good solid fencing that is repaired as required, they are also cleaned regularly and no weeds are allowed to get established. The indoor arena is a generous size with lots of natural light and additional electric lighting for the dark winter evenings, the outdoor arena is huge and along with the indoor is well maintained and kept very clean. The two barns where the horses are stabled are spacious, clean and again benefit from lots of natural light plus electric lighting. The stables are generous and the layout facilitates visual contact between all the horses. The Tack Rooms are within the barn and are securely locked. There is a storage barn available with individual space for each owner to keep their belongings again this is kept securely locked. The local area affords wonderful off-road riding with many local bridleways and byways, Salisbury Plain is just a stone's throw away across the valley and the ever-changing view from the yard is stunning. The owners are delightful, they are very knowledgeable, experienced and caring. They do everything they can to meet their clients' needs and try to be as flexible as possible. I was more than confident to leave my pony in their care if I needed to go away. Vicky is both an excellent rider and teacher, she is also skilled at training horses and bringing on youngsters. The cats, dogs, chickens and pig are an additional bonus!!!!

Really lovely yard and a perfect setting for horses. I am lucky enough to work here as a groom and live on-site, so the horses are always checked on in the evenings and any emergencies can be dealt with. The facilities are excellent and there are 2 spacious, well maintained schools. The hacking is beautiful and there are plenty of off-road places to explore all year round. This is a really relaxed, professional and friendly place to be and the yard manager and owners are hugely experienced. If you need help with groundwork or riding, or bringing on a horse, the training available on-site really is second to none.
