I have a large horse with a number of health issues. At Lower Dale he has blossomed because I can trust that everything will be done as I like them to be done. There is a great balance between professional & really caring so all horses are treated as individuals & the Manager & grooms treat each one according to the horses needs. The manager & grooms cannot do eniuggh for you and work with you as a team. The facilities there are very well managed & are of the highest standard - from the menage to the solar stable - and many more. The sense of calm & the friendliness of everyone ensure enjoyment & relaxing time with your horse.Nearly every month there is an event which gives you the opportunity to challenge & improve your riding skills eg workshops in dressage & show jumping. Very professional teaching of riding which is available by appointment means you are welcome whatever your standard of riding. I'm so glad I came here because it's exactly how it says in the advert.
I have worked at Lowerdale farm for the past 3.5years. Having over 15years experience with equines and over 8years within the equestrian industry - from riding schools to international showjumping yards, it's fair to say ive seen my share. Lowerdale farm is an outstanding place, not only to work and keep horses but to make life long friends and be a part of the team. With lovely yard owners, fantastic facilities, brilliant, well managed pastures, knowledgable/qualified staff and strict routines the horses are always happy! Horses are the main priority at Lowerdale, their health and happiness is our main concern. Honest advice is always on hand with love and best interest to whichever customer or horse that may be. We want everyone to enjoy there beloved 4 legged friends and Lowerdale is a wonderdul place to do this! I am a qualifed BHSAI int SM and couldn't think of anywhere better to stable a horse requiring a happy horse life on full livery.
Am at a loss to understand the first comment posted ..!
Have experienced nothing but individual , tailored care for our horses over the last 4 years , as their needs have changed through illness or injury. Nothing is too much trouble...
Professional , caring and knowledgeable advice from staff and support whenever needed is at the heart of Lowerdale.
Pls could " BHS " clarify that these are indeed their initials ( on the anonymous post ) .
Unfortunately they are similar to the reputable British Horse Society that annually inspects the livery yard and have awarded it Highly Commended for the last few years running..
I am sure the British Horse Society would wish to distance themselves from any confusion with their involvement in this individuals comment.
It is very rare that you come across such a lovely environment, especially in the equine world. Lower Dale is definitely up there for their welcoming, friendly staff and their 5* all round care. I was so excited when I heard that my horse would have a care plan (I'm a student nurse) and from there, I could tell how much they value their horses and liveries. They were all so supportive from day one and I'm so grateful for that. Words can't describe how pleased I am with everything. Plus.. There's cottages and a spa on site! So while your horse is grazing you can get your legs waxed, nails done, eyelashes etc. What more could you dream of really?!
Amazing care for our horse for over 7 years ( and we never plan on leaving!) Each member of staff knows every single horse like the back of their hand and cares for them as if they are their own. They are wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable and have comforted and advised us through whatever injury/illness that could be thrown at us all with a smile! Amazing instructors and superb facilities, and each and every horse has an individual care plan. The Olympic team would probably find it a luxury!
If you are looking for a yard which is professionally run and prioritises the welfare of the horses above all else then I would highly recommend Lowerdale.
The turnout is excellent and the school is well maintained. There is also a shower block, solarium, farriers station, horsewalker, and tea room for liveries.
Most importantly though, is the care all the horses are given and the individual attention, it really is fantastic!
My horse has been at Lower Dale for 9/10 years and the care he receives is second to none. Staff and owners are very understanding and approachable and really do care about the horses on a daily basis. Great facilities and easily accessible to lovely hacks. All year turnout. Very friendly, family run yard. I'm pretty sure my horse couldn't be happier and the number of years we have been there is testament to that.
I have kept my horses at Lower Dale Farm for more than 7 years. The every day turnout, even in winter, is excellent and the facilities are great - all weather floodlit ménage, walker, brew room, shower room, rug room, horse shower and solarium. The staff and owners work very hard to keep our horses happy and are a really good team. Its my favourite place to go to unwind!
Great facilities, staff and owners. Everyone goes out of their way to accommodate the needs of you and your horse. This is the second time I have been on this yard, all horses I've had on here have loved it. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and really love the horses. Plus it's the friendliest bunch of people your likely to meet in the horse world.
Absolutely first class equestrian centre with fabulous staff and facilities. Care of the horses is outstanding, nothing is too much trouble and great consideration is given when your horse needs some extra care or has special requirements due to injury or health issues. Cannot rate this professional, yet friendly and fun, yard highly enough.
