Livery Yard in Waltham Abbey
Southend Farm is home to approximately 80 horses. Situated on the edge of Epping Forest, we are ideally situated for hacking out, with some excellent local rides and bridlepaths.
We run a large, friendly DIY yard with excellent facilities including one 30m x 50m rubber surfaced ménage and two smaller sand surfaced ones, which are available to use free of charge to our liveries. Many of our liveries enjoy private and group lessons in the ménages, and organise fun clear round jumping and dressage competitions.
Summer fields and winter paddocks and pens are provided, although horses will have to share. During the summer months horses may be left out in the fields, but owners are responsible for their well-being. Our staff will of course keep an eye out for them. In the winter they may only be turned out for short periods, and never after dark.
Hay and bedding deliveries can be arranged to your tack room most days as we have a hay merchant on site. We allow straw or other plant based bedding products such as Equisorb and Aubiose but no wood based products or wood shavings.
A number of local feed merchants and farriers deliver to and frequent the yard, and are always happy to take on new customers.
A vet visits the farm weekly from House & Jackson veterinary practice and is happy to take on new customers, although you are quite welcome to arrange for your own vet to visit.
Although we do not ourselves offer livery services, we have a number of people on site who are very happy to provide services, from simply giving morning feeds to a full livery service. Please phone to discuss your requirements, and we will be happy to put you in touch with the right person.
