Thurgood Farm

Here at Thurgood Farm we strive to provide a 5* service.

We offer packages to suit your own personal needs, the horses welfare always comes first and we keep them all in a regular routine.

We offer Part and Full Livery. Thurgood Farm is based in a quiet area near Eight Ash Green in Colchester.

We are a family run yard that promotes a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Most of our liveries have been with us for years and we don’t have a huge turnover of clients.

We offer 5* care and the client’s needs are a priority as well as the horses’ welfare.

Our facilities include a 60x20m school, a 20x20m lunge pen, 5 horse Monarch horsewalker.

We have a private track that runs round the farm, as well as quiet lanes and links to the Essex Bridleways.

Our small team consists of people that have had over 25 years of experience in the horse industry.

The yard is professionally run and our prices are fair.

We also invite trainers to hold clinics, and we also run low-key summer events.

Karen and Jodie are incredibly knowledgeable, professional and super helpful. The yard is spotless and the horses really do receive a 5* service. My boy was in a muddle when I moved him to Thurgood Farm from another yard and was generally run down. Karen’s kindness, skill and expertise in diagnosing his issues soon had my horse feeling well and looking amazing through adjusting his diet and helping me bring him back to fitness with a work programme. Both ladies are accomplished eventers, and experienced dressage riders..... lessons are available and the arena is fantastic. small, genuinely friendly yard where everyone supports and helps each other. Highly recommended.

Review by , 3 years ago

I arrived at Thurgood Farm this January and my horse settled immediately. The owners and staff treat my horse as one of their own and he is totally relaxed and happy. I can rest assured knowing that in my absence he is surrounded by kind knowledgeable people that will go above and beyond to assure his safety and comfort. The facilities are first class and the full livery service I receive is second to none. I cannot rate this yard highly enough. Thank you Karen, Jodie, Kevin and their amazing team.
