Riiiiight.

Busy trying to find DIY livery for my boy in Cheltenham, have Home Farm lined up for a viewing on Sunday, which would be perfect as we have no transport so could compete!

Must have lots of turnout, good safe hacking and a school.

Only problem being he does crib bite (although going to start treating him and hoping this will lessen/stop but I can't guarantee)

Also looking for a farrier that is good and doesn't cost the earth, prices round here vary so much!

Thanks folks!

Thanks Foreverwandering!

Currently we've not actually in Cheltenham, Bourton on the Water until we find a yard to move to!

What sort of prices are we talking for a full set??

oh right, very near where i am!
i think its £47 for full set.. or £57... but i have road studs and that and i think i pay £57.. well i say i pay, i mean my dad!
im sure there are lots of yards near you...
overdale eqeustrian centre
crown farm
deer park
summerhouse

depends what sort of facilities you want?
home farm is a nice place, but quite far.. im sure you could find somewhere closer.

Ah forgot to add, I'm in Cheltenham and he's in Bourton as he's on loan until I find somewhere to put him and then I'm buying him (complicated!)

Home farm is about 10mins drive from home and I could compete on site which is ideal as I have no transport!

£47 for shoes! Yay! Currently on a five week rota at £70 a pop...

Have emailed Deer Park and waiting for a reply. Where's Overdale/Crown Farm?

Summerhouse is too far away as he'd be on DIY.

oh right, sorry misunderstood...
crown farm is probably too far then as is near Burford, overdale is chipping norton, so again probably too far...

Deer Park very good and much better hacking

Any idea on prices? Deer Park would be great as it's not too far away from us and hacking really appeals to me.

Thanks for the PM's re farriers guys, much apprecitated!

Going to see Deer Park this evening, it's £30 a week but I figure it's worth paying that for better hacking, plus we can hack round the XC course.

Mind you I'm not sure how my ex-racer is going to react to sand gallops
