Livery and Loan

Riseholme Equine Centre has two American style barns with 48 stables, designed to keep your horse safe and happy.

Our American barn style stabling system has everything your horse needs to thrive.

Working livery

Horses suitable for working as part of our teaching sessions may be taken on a working livery basis.

Your horse will stay with us and will take part in educational sessions during term time for no more than three hours per day. You'll be able to ride your horse when it isn't being used for teaching purposes – this is usually at weekends.

If your horse is suitable and is accepted on working livery, your livery costs will be reduced by 50%. We will provide all feed and bedding and the day-to-day care of the horse and will look after the horse during term time.

You would be responsible for any expenses for worming, tack repairs, any veterinary fees and farrier fees.

If you wish to discuss your horse’s suitability for working livery, please email
