PostSubject: Advice on running a D.I.Y livery yard (Pros and cons.)   Fri Mar 08, 2013 4:21 pm

I have been offered a wonderful opertunitie the use of a yard, 24 stables, indoor school, manarge, 15 hectors, all paddocked up ready to go!!!!affraid



I've been luck to get myself a job cheers Yhippy payed employment, large very exclusive top B/B just a few miles away from me. In my morning break I went for a walk to look at the wonderful gardens, walked through an arch way and their it was, this wonderful set up. I asked my employer about it and she said bring your horses use the yard, set it up if I wanted.!!! It was done 6 years ago for her daughter to run a riding center, but due to her daughters divorce ect. It was never started, so it just sit's there doing nothing. I have been given the weekend to get a basic plan together and talk with them next week.

So guys and gals, question's are :- what registration do you need to run just d.i.y livery? Do I need french qaulifications? ( I have stable managment, but english) Do I need insurence ? Also I've noticed on Boncoin for my area yards asking 45 euros a week, is this the going rate?

If anyone runs such a yard I would be most greatful for any information. Im in the Deux sevres area (79) so wont be nicking any clients lol. or any one have any thoughts I would be most greatful for thoughts advice or any experiences you have had as clients.

Thanks in advance Sue.

The paper work was a mine field, had loads of problems with the safer, no-one seems to know what is right. So for the moment have not bothered, wish I had just gone it allone and not bothered with contacting safer. So wonderful yard is sat mostly empty, have got mine their, I used the sand school last week myself. confused

You can't get away from the SAFER I'm afraid Shocked

They have made our lives an absolute misery over the last few years. I just wish we'd known what we know now when we were thinking of buying the property, we would have run a mile Sad

Anyway, if you can use it and enjoy it for yourself then make the most of it!

I cannot wait for the day to arrive when we don't have to answer to the SAFER for everything.
