All prices are adjusted for inflation annually on 1st February, and by
consistent with the level of UK inflation in the previous year (RPI is
used, rather than CPI, since property costs are excluded from CPI).
Or to be more precise, where you and your horse's needs
first ! At Lovrin Equine
have first class facilities in the beautiful village of
Wymeswold. A small and relaxed yard, we love thoroughbreds
and sport horses, eventers, dressage
horses, hunters and cobs, but we welcome all horses, and ponies,
from across the spectrum. Above all else we like to enjoy our horses to
the full, and we love to have fun, so if you are like minded, whether
you are heavily involved in competitive sport
or hunting, are primarily interested in hacking, or own
young or resting, retired or pet animals, you are welcome
at Lovrin Equine
We offer a basic minimum part livery 'starter' package, to which
any additional required services can be added, by arrangement with each
individual customer, to construct a bespoke weekly service package for
each horse. With this approach we aim to accommodate the requirements
and preferrences of a wide range of quite different horse and pony
customers. Once we have agreed a bespoke weekly service package for a
particular horse and owner, we calculate an associated total weekly
price. By multiplying that weekly price by 52 (weeks of the year), and
then dividing by 12 (months of the year), we establish a price per
month which is then payable in advance, by no later than the first day
of the calendar month in question. The price then remains the same each
month, irrespective of the number of days in the month, and is thus a
fixed and predictable amount all year round (assuming the service
required is unaltered). Minor variations and additions to the service
provided on a daily basis, as needed to enable customers to manage
their busy lives, or due to weather conditions, or as daily
developments impact upon a horse's prevailing needs, are simply
absorbed as part of the expected 'give and take' between the business
and our customers, and these extras and additions to the service are
provided for no additional charge. If on the other hand a large
variation in the service provided is required, for example an upgrade
from the minimum package to full livery for the period of a two week
vacation for the owner, then an additional charge would be incurred in
For the livery business to remain on a healthy footing we need to be
full, or close to full, and to promote that outcome, once having agreed
a particular bespoke weekly service package for a customer, we aim to
provide additional services, over and above our minimum part livery
'starter' package, at minimal possible extra cost. By keeping the costs
of extras at a very affordable level in this way we hope to enable
those people who need some additional help, perhaps only on certain
days of the week, to be able more easily to make the decision to join
us at Lovrin Equine
We understand that every horse owner has their own views on how
best to take care of their own animal/s, and, although pleased to help
suggestions if our opinions are sought, we prefer it that way ! We
want our owners to feel secure and in control, each managing
their horse according to their own personal opinions and preferences,
objective is to ensure that both they and their horses feel
relaxed and at home with Lovrin Equine

provision, and opening hours remain as normal, except that on Xmas Eve,
