Ah I know it's nice to have your space, but a school and hacking buddies would be lush!! I'm not looking for a huge yard, just something smallish! Only an idea at the momen t anyway!! Couldn't get someone in as it's dads fields etc and being the lovely farmer he is he hates horses and reckons they're a waste of money!!! xxx

im on oxfordshire/gloucestershire so here you go:
sh1tty farm which is more like a junk yard is £30 grass livery, not including anything else
lovely yard is £30 with great facilities- 2 SJing courses, XC, arena etc. and that is for a stable and a paddock....
and then you have somewhere which runs events which is £7.95 a day including all their facilites- indoor/outdoor arena, XC course, gallops etc.
£130 per month for all inclusive at a yard with good facilities but no bedding.
grass livery can be £40 with lots of facilites
so sort of varies tbh! there isn't really a set price at all in our area as it is very much down to the yard etc. although first yard mentioned is wayyyyyyyyyyyy over priced! but there we go! :) hope that has helped a bit

Thats not too bad. Im hoping to get a horse on loan again, and have always used the same yard (buckinghamshire) but not sure if theyll have room for me. Theyre cheap - £100 a month incl hay and straw (as most of it is made there) but the school isnt very good.
Im in a bit of a pickle cos Im going to look at some horses to loan, but if I go back to the yard they would have me back but it would have to be a live out jobby for the time being at least as theres no stables free ahhhh
