Butlers Hill Livery Yard offers bespoke services and unrivalled facilities, ensuring your horse is kept comfortable, safe, and most importantly, happy.
Our boutique livery service is limited to 11 full livery horses and 9 retiree horses, meaning that the yard is never noisy or busy - there is enough time for staff to give a truly dedicated service to both horse and owner.
Since 2018, Butlers Hill Livery has seen a huge amount of development to create the perfect environment for your horse.
The main yard block currently houses 11 loose boxes and feed stores, whilst another building has been recently converted into an indoor arena. In addition, there is an all-weather arena which enjoys superb views down the valley.
All of this is housed within over 100 acres of beautiful Cotswold countryside, providing grazing pastures and some excellent hacking routes.
We have paddocks of quality grazing with suitable companions or smaller paddocks available with company for restricted grazing, according to requirements.
We also have laminitic sand paddocks for zero grazing. All paddocks are regularly maintained, ensuring the highest quality grazing.
Safety is of great importance to us, and all fields are maintained to a high level, with all paddocks fenced with stock fence and/or high quality electric wire.
Meet the Team
Living onsite are Butlers Hill Livery's owners, Joe Chapman and her partner Bryan.
Joe has been involved with horses all her life; familiar with the guilt of balancing a career and horses, she has personal experience of DIY and full livery.
In 2018, Joe was lucky enough to be able to retire early, and so began Butlers Hill Livery.
You can often find Joe with her beloved Ralph and Kev, or stocking up the yard biscuit tin!
Bryan is more likely to be found working in the fields or watching rugby!
Yard Manager Laurel has over 10 years experience and has enjoyed time on racing yards, on the hunting field, the showjumping circuit and eventing. Her favourite part of working at Butlers Hill Livery is exercising clients’ horses, and learning their quirks!
Alison, our Groom, is the most recent addition to the Butlers Hill Livery family, and boasts 20 years' experience on stud yards. Since moving to Butlers Hill Livery, she has enjoyed seeing the close bonds between horse and owner.
We are also lucky enough to enjoy the help of Freddie and Gayle who assist with yard duties on weekends, giving Joe, Laurel and Alison a well-deserved break!
In addition to our fantastic facilities, we also offer various clinics and events, as well as indoor school and arena hire.
