    My other half pays around £25/week for stable rental. This is for DIY livery, so she has to do everything involved in looking after the horse herself. She pays for feed and bedding etc on top.

    So just for a roof over the horses head, power, water and pasture she pays £25/week.

    This is a commercial livery yard though with around 60 stables.The livery yard makes further money by offering extras like letting out and bringing in, mucking out etc etc.

    Edited to add: You’d need about 2 acres of land per horse to allow rotation etc.

    S-in-L paid £50pw for stable and grazing rental, no livery.
    She now pays £60pw for stable, grazing, hay and 3 days livery which is a good deal.

    Make it inhabitable by humans and let it out as a health retreat 🙂

    Sorry, but I read the thread title as….

    “What’s the going rate for horse stabbing?”

    😯 😳

    I’ve been emptying thirty five years of accumulated junk from our stables.

    When we bought the house they were let out but we’ve neither kept horses nor relet them.

    We have space for perhaps seven horses and a tack room. We could also reclaim part of the Park to use as a paddock.

    I’ve no idea what the rental of a stable would be. Any horsey types on here that could give me a clue?

    Missus pays £10 a week. Its nowt spesh, but its weatherproof and safe. Its £25 during the summer. She Pays £36 a month for a big Haylage bail.

    Not my cup of tea, but i’d be ddevestated if anything happened to her Horse. He’s ace.

    me too! you’d have to be a bit unstable to stab a horse. I don’t think they’d grant you bale. you’d probably be put out to pasture.

    Wrong thread brakes! See the Day Off Rant.

    OH pays £20phpw for roof/water/power as cbmotorsport said. (In rural North Yorks)

    Depends on the genre horses as to how much space they require I believe. I.e shetlands and kids ponies don’t need as much space to jog about in, nor do they need as much grass.

    OH uses a forum called horse gossip, might be worth asking on there?

    You’d get a bit of money in BUT there’s always the possibility that little Trixy and her friends from school get dropped off at 8 on a Saturday/Sunday morning and don’t leave until 6 at night – do you really want that?

    For some reason I keep reading the thread title as horse stabbing instead of stabling. Similar to the way I read shopfitting as shoplifting.

    What about shirtlifting?

    Some of the expensive livery stables around Cheshire charge as much as £75 per week.

    I think £20 – £30 would be about right.
    Way back many moons ago, I paid £5 per month to a corrupt* farmer to keep my large pony out at grass.
    * turned out it wasn’t his land.

    Edit: Have you space for an outdoor menage? If so this will bring in a bit more money

    This is largely why we never continued letting the stables.

    Bunnyhop, there’s always room in my life for an outdoor menage* 🙂

    * This may require further research.

    You’ve obviously never been to a livery yard!? 😀

    More like middle aged, overweight, hairy faced ladies, miraculously squeezed into jodphurs, smoking roll ups, drinking tea and talking for England.

    everyone gets the menage/manege thing wrong. Except my dad. Who trots it out whenever he can. He’s where I get my smartarsery from.

    Mcmoont you will also need a barn to store hay and feed, an area for cars to be parked etc when the little darlings are looking after dobbin. Someone will always want to leave the box or trailer at yours as well.

    I presumed you meant menage as in menagerie and having a little petting zoo out back with fancy chickens and pot-bellied pigs.

    Since the age of 6 this horse mad girl always thought it was menage, well that’s what everyone else called it.

    So I can see brakes that’s where the mistake has come from.

    Thanks for the clarification, there’s no telling how much trouble I could have found myself in.

    Mmmh, mcmoonter collecting vast quantities of wood and now horses. Suspect there may be a mahoosive BBQ in the near future. Hope we are all invited?

    My sister in law is no longer on the board of Tescos so my offer to host the AGM BBQ has been shelved.

    As already said you will need several paddocks as horses will chew up the sward when it is wet (look at what they do to bridle ways!) You will end up picking up shit daily from the fields because of possible worm infections. Many horse owners have them as a trophy without really knowing what is involved. Buy a millstone to put round your neck it will be easier 😉

    tbh A stable is no good without associated fields – so work on 1/2-1 acre per horse, more if it’s 5hit ground.
