“Caring service. Everything just how I left it or better!"
“I just wanted to thank you as profusely as possible for the amazing job you did looking after my place and my horses, dogs and chickens while I was away. The severe storms that blew two of the field shelters over the fence, and knocked the electricity and heating out for 3 days, made your life as difficult as possible.......Thank you again for all your hard work and amazing coping skills..... I would recommend you to everyone.”
“Thank you ever so much for the fantastic job you've done here.... We are both over the moon with the way you did everything here and thanks for doing Susie too [Infected Sarcoids ].......All in all we are completely thrilled with you.”
“Many thanks again for house and animal sitting for us, you provide a marvelous service. All the animals seemed completely relaxed and contented which is great peace of mind. Thanks very much for keeping Spanish rugged, he is very well with no extra itchy bits [sweet itch/allergy to insect bites].”
We provide professional, experienced equine specialists to take full care of your horses whilst you are away. All our sitters have over 10 years of experience, many over 20 years, working with horses in a variety of areas, both competitive and leisure; traditional and natural, ensuring that we can match you with a sitter whose skills meet your needs. With this depth of knowledge, and basic equine and animal first aid skills, our sitters have the experience to deal with the unexpected.
We provide complete peace of mind. Our unique daily update service allows you to be reassured that your animals are happy, confident and relaxed with their sitter. So that you can relax and enjoy your holiday.
We come to you. We come out to your property, either to provide daily visits or a full Horse and House sitting service, to avoid the unnecessary stress of moving your horse(s) to a livery yard for care. It has been scientifically proven that both transportation and new environments are extremely stressful situations for horses, and that stress lowers the immune system, making it more likely for your horses to pick up a virus or infection in a strange environment.
We carry on your normal routine so that the only thing that changes for the horses and animals is the person providing the care. This again helps to minimise the stress levels.
We treat all the horses and animals in our care as if they were our own. Showing them the same level of love and attention that they would receive from you.
We also provide care for a large range of other animals, including both small/domestic animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea-pigs, ferrets, fish and hamsters; and farm animals (in non-commercial numbers), such as sheep, cattle, pigs and poultry; as well as all equines, from horses and ponies to donkeys and mules.
We take bookings of any length – be it 1 afternoon or 3 months. We can also cater for you on a last minute basis or take bookings as far in advance as you would like to book.
We provide an initial meeting completely free of both charge and obligation (within the UK). This allows us to get to know you and discuss your exact requirements so that we are able to match you with your perfect sitter. You will also get the opportunity to meet your chosen sitter to make sure you are completely happy with how your animals interact with them. There will be no charge for this second meeting, but you are asked to cover the sitter’s transportation costs.
All of our sitters are fully vetted by us. We do extensive background and reference checks before any of our sitters do any work for us. We also conduct regular checks on our sitters whilst they are working to ensure our high standards are being maintained.
We charge by the day or by the visit, not by the hour, so that we are not ‘clock-watching’ and can spend as much time as we feel is needed with each horse and animal. TLC is Free!
We can either provide daily visits to take full care of your horses’ needs, or move in and provide a full Horse & House Sitting Service to give you the added assurance and security of having someone in your house the majority of the time.
