West Sussex Livery

A friendly and spacious BHS-approved livery yard based in the village of Dial Post near Horsham, West Sussex. It is owned and run by Anne Hawes, who keeps her own horses for affiliated eventing and has run a livery yard, hired hunters and operated a horse and pony share scheme for over twenty years.

Anne, who is third generation of a local farming family, has owned horses all her life and offers a unique service within the horse business as she has an instinctive understanding of horses and their needs. In addition to her own wealth of experience, she has spent many years working with and observing other people's methods and adapting them to form her own special way of helping horses and their owners to fulfill their potential. She is also happy to take on horses and owners with problems and offers calm, practical advice tailored to individual requirements.

The livery yard is situated at New Barn Farm on a private estate 6 miles south of Horsham just off the A24. Set right in the heart of the Sussex countryside, yet just over an hour from London, the farm is secluded with access to thousands of acres of off-road riding (and is a member of the TROT scheme).

West Sussex Livery offers:

Paul, also an apprentice for two years, has completed his NVQ 2 and NVQ in Team Leadership.

Sara has a lifetime of experience working with hunters and is a much-valued backup, helper and driver.

Matt Staples DWCF, also a valued member of the team, who has been shoeing and keeping our horses sound since 1998.

Melissa, our youngest rider at 17, rides, schools and competes for Anne and specialises in producing ponies and has had much success with my Connemara stallion (see SWALLOWS NEST STUD PAGE for more details).

We can fill this gap with a share scheme where we match quality horses owned by Anne with riders to meet  individual needs,  offering support  in helping you fulfil your personal potential and encourage you to take your riding to the next level. We can develop a step-by-step plan for you to reach your goal and you will learn how to keep your horse fit and happy.

You will have the opportunity to join in with the many and varied events we travel to such as affiliated show jumping, eventing and dressage. For the more experienced rider we run seasonal activities including adventure hacks: beach rides, spring bluebell rides, cross country rides, south downs way rides, picnic rides, sponsored rides and hunter trials.
