Our family have been running a livery yard at Greenacres Farm for over 40 years. The farm is situated at the end of a quiet country lane in a peaceful, rural position on the Hampshire/Berkshire border and yet is within easy driving distance of the M4 and M3 motorways and several competition venues including Wellington Riding. Extensive (permit only) hacking is available as the farm is less than a mile from the Bramshill Forest and Warren Heath both of which are owned by the Forest England. The yard has seen some changes and developments in the last few years. These include a large car park, barn, round pen and security system. Regular clinics are held and anyone is welcome to join in. Enjoyment and willingness to learn being the main criteria.
"We will always remember the years Prof was with you at Greenacres and all the amazing care and attention you gave to make his life there pretty special for our little pony. You have been so great through the years giving us help and guidance. We don't know what we would have done without you at times. Words can't express my gratitude" Nicky Lucas and The Professor.
"I would highly recommend Greenacres Farm as a professionally run, friendly yard with excellent facilities. For me it was essential to find a yard with plenty of year round turn out, a good outdoor school, good hacking and the flexibility to do my horse myself, but have the advantage of extra assistance if needed. It is in a beautiful, peaceful setting and Trio (sometimes quirky) is extremely happy here. Louise is very professional and is a highly accomplished rider. She runs the yard to a very high level in safety (both for horses and people). There are a real mixture of owners from happy hackers to those who like to compete regularly in dressage, show jumping and eventing. There is always an excellent atmosphere and people are always around to give advice and watch out for each others horses. I could not imagine being anywhere else." A.L.
