Hi just curious about how much you pay for grass livery with use of facilities. We are looking to get a project in the summer to bring on and grass livery at the yard we're at is £110! This is with use of two schools,lunge pen and some hacking. Is this just slightly pricey or not?

Its dirt cheap! I pay £25 a week for 24/7 turnout on a working farm. No real electric, no school etc. I paid £42 a week for grass livery on a yard like you have

Okay thanks all it has been a while since we had horses on grass livery with use of facilities on a yard like the one we are on. Things have definitely changed! We used to pay something like £60 with hay provided! Definitlely best place to be for a project as well. Thanks again

Yes we were very lucky. It was a lovely lady who used to compete with my mum and her partner. They had their own private yard where they trained young horses before selling them for nearly 10 years before they sold up and moved to America. They used to buy hay in bulk and were very generous for letting us have as much as we needed for free.
