Livery & Loan
Pupils looking for a more immersive equestrian experience can choose from several livery or loan options.
Pupils from Year 5 upwards can bring their pony or horse to school. Stonar believes in ensuring that they learn to take responsibility for their steed, with our expert team on hand to guide, as they learn essential stable management skills. Pupils come to the yard before breakfast and return after school each day to take care of their pony or horse.
To complete the next steps to request a stable reservation please complete the livery application form and contact the Riding Office. Booking early is recommended and payment must be made in full by the first day of term. We cannot accept stallions for livery.
It is also possible for riders staying at Stonar for two terms or more to loan one of Stonar’s horses or ponies. The pupil is then responsible for the complete care, including feeding and mucking out morning and evenings. These tasks will be supervised as necessary. The pupil can ride the horse daily and compete in Stonar Equestrian Centre competitions. They may also be able to compete in external competitions.
The horse/pony will be provided with tack and equipment. Shoeing, vaccinations, vet’s fee and worming costs will be covered by Stonar.
A waiting list operates and to ensure a horse or pony is available, booking early is advisable.
One of the best things about Stonar is that my pony can come with me too! The staff in the Equestrian Centre are always so helpful and friendly, I know I can always ask for their support if I need it."
