We are a professional team offering long and short term livery and training packages (including holiday livery) and rehabilitation/spa livery to the highest standard. The yard is run in a relaxed and friendly manner, with each horse treated as an individual. We offer flexibility to tailor a pick your own livery service depending on your needs and requirements. This may change week by week.

Whether you are looking for a base with first class facilities, a rider for your horse, or you are looking for help with your own training and competition results, we can offer a package to accommodate. Our livery clients are deliberately kept to a modest number so that we are able to give each horse as much attention as is necessary, with the understanding that different horses require different approaches to their working day. Whatever your goals or aspirations, as a riding or non-riding client, we can devise a training regime to improve results, assist with show preparation and warm up, and look at long term aims and ambitions.

Horses in training range from 3 year olds in the initial phases of backing to horses working at Grand Prix. With extensive experience in the dressage arena, we have an exceptional record in producing horses and maximising their performance at their respective levels.

Riding clients at Twyford Mill Equestrian benefit hugely from having a Grand Prix rider on site. Alongside individual training sessions, it can be beneficial to ride in the school at the same time as Tom and the team, to watch other training sessions, or watch the schooling of other horses.

Please CONTACT US to arrange a tour and to have an informal chat about how we may be able to help you.
