The past few months has seen a period of change here at CVE. Through circumstances beyond my control, we have had to move from our previous yard and began operating out of my own field next door. This has been a little bit of a set-back and took us back to basics, however, it has not stopped us! We are still functioning, the health and happiness of our horses comes first, and we are seeing success across the range of equestrian services that we have on offer; horse sales, riding school, hacking, schooling and breaking liveries, working liveries. We have been, and are still, developing our facilities so that we are able to offer the best environment in which to offer our services. We have just completed stage one, which has seen CVE change from a complete grass field to a yard with 4 stables, a beautiful ménage (with sand and rubber surface), tack store, an office and a portaloo. It has been hard work, and I could not have done this without the help and support of my working livery owners, my rider (SLC Equestrian), and team of volunteers. I am looking forward to seeing my business grow and blossom, and helping my horses, and my past, current and future customers to enjoy equestrianism in any form that they can.
References and testimonials are available for all aspects of my business, and I have 100's of happy customers; if you would like to speak to any of these people then I am more than happy to arrange this. All of my horses & ponies for sale are open to trial, and any vets and instructors are welcome to come to the yard. I have supplied horses and ponies to many riding schools, RDA centres, and gain a lot of business through word of mouth. All horses and ponies are fully warrantied (with a full money back guarantee). Carrie's promise to you is to match the rider with their horse, and to tell you absolutely everything. Our horses are hacked both alone and in company, including over the M4 and M48. If you are looking for your Equine Partner this please call me to discuss your requirements.
All our horses are up to date with the farrier, worming, teeth and vaccination.
***Horse Sales: Our published prices are subject to change at any time; this is based on the horses time with us and the work completed. As you can understand the more work we put in, the more we need to ask****
