10 REASONS TO CHOOSE US
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 stick to your routine.
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 have you covered.
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 are flexible.
We take bookings of any length – be it 1 afternoon or 3 months. We can also cater for you on short notice basis or take bookings as far in advance as you would like to book.
FREE initial meeting.
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. You are asked to cover the sitter’s transportation costs.
All of our sitters are fully vetted and insured.
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.
TLC is Free!
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.
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.
