Livery Yard in Waltham Abbey
Southend Farm is home to approximately 50 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 good 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. Liveries may book out the large school for private individual lessons if they wish.
Turnout: Summer fields and winter paddocks and pens are provided, although horses will have to share fields. During the summer months (usually May to end of October) horses may be left out in the fields day and night, but owners are responsible for their well-being. In the winter they may only be turned out for short periods, and never after dark.
A number of local feed merchants and farriers deliver frequently to 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 attend.
Although we are a DIY yard, we have 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.
New horses to the yard will need to be tested for Strangles, and a negative result provided before coming here.
