We have 12 internal Monarch stables and 5 huge brick boxes. They are all full matted and several have back windows to over look the yard and the fields. We also have several large barns for storage of hay/haylage, feeds and bedding, and was very secure alarmed tack and rug room.Learn More
We bought a brand new Monarch 5 horse walker at the beginning of 2007, it is regularly serviced and is a huge benefit to the yard. We use it only as an extra, rather than instead of working the horses, and it is a good way to warm them up and cool down, before and after work. A few years later we added a roof to keep the horses dry on the wetter cold days!Learn More
In 2008 we extended the arena to full length, so I could use it to go through my international dressage tests. We also re-surfaced it with a top of the range surface from Martin Collins. It is an amazing surface and the horses all go very well on it. We also have a full set of show jumps with fillers.Learn More
I am very lucky to have 40 acres of fenced paddocks for all my horses. It is split up with a combination of large hedges, post and rail, and feildguard electric fencing. All the horses are turned out in individual paddocks to avoid injuries.Learn More
It is great that my grandparents live next door to us, and own a farm, although it is a working farm I am able to use the 250 acres they have for canterwork and keeping my horses fit. It is also great for the young horses as they can get used to working on grass, and keep fit even if it is just walking up the hills.Learn More
I have just bought my 5 horse PRB horsebox off my parents, I am now completely self funded and am absolutely delighted I was able to buy such a fantastic lorry.
It have a huge luxury living with absolutely everything you need for stay away competitions. It takes 5 large horses and has plenty of locker space.
This was a new addition to the yard for the 2018 season.
I have wanted a little lorry for years as I feel they are fantastic for little trips out, whether it be the vets, lessons or if one needs to go schooling. The are much quicker to get around in, and I don’t need to avoid bridges and weight limits that I do in the big lorry.
We made sure we had a 4.5 ton chassis so it is legal and safe for the horses to travel.
I am so excited about the new Monarch Stocks and Solarium.
The Horses are going to spoilt rotten, the stocks are very useful for keeping the horses secure, and the solarium keeps the horses muscles warm and relaxed, whether it is before or after work or just after they have been washed or whilst they are being plaited ready for competitions!!
The Centaur Heated Horse Rugs rails is a great asset to Team Spence, meaning we can now wash and dry out rugs and saddle cloths from home.
I am very lucky that I have an Activo-Med Magnetic rug and a Cyclossage Massage rug.
Both rugs are fantastic, the Cyclossage is brilliant for warming the horses up before exercise and the Activo-Med has the Magnetic Pulses which is great for recovery after exercise!!
