With the news of the outbreak of Equine Influenza in the equine industry this has raised some concerns throughout the equine world.
We have taken relevant action and put the below protocol into place.
To allow all visitors the confidence when visiting SFE we would like to share with you all that ALL our livery horses must be fully vaccinated before housing at SFE, and are all our horses are up to date, those actively competing have also either had or are booked in for an additional booster if they are due within the next 6 months. This is not mandatory and purely advisory but we have followed this advice to reduce any risk of infection.
Going forward we do ask the same from our visiting client, such as rehabs, arena hire visitors, horses attending clinics and also our competitors. In order to continue visiting and enjoying our events at SFE we ask that your horses are fully vaccinated and you will or may be asked to produce your passport or vaccination certificate to prove this.
We also ask that is any signs or symptoms of flu are not ignored and if you suspect anything to either report it and have a vet check your horse, or at least do not attend SFE.
We all need to work together in order to reduce the risk of further disease.
I cannot quite believe we are celebrating 10 years of business at Shaw Farm, and what an incredible journey it has been.
We have seriously progressed over the years, from humble beginnings to now being one of the leading centres in the North West for training and livery.
I am so thankful of the opportunities that have come our way with having the yard, from helping people achieve their goals, training our horses to a super level of dressage, training with world class trainers and inviting these trainers into our yard, building our facility and continuing to grow and develop.
The staff we have had over the years will forever be in my debt, as I cannot possibly do the job I do and provide the service I do without them.
We have evolved naturally and I am super proud of the business we have nurtured, it could not of been possible without my parents and my husband.
I am very excited for the next 10 years, my passion and drive for SFE is stronger than ever.
Thank you all so much for making SFE as fabulous as it is, without the amazing and loyal custom over the years SFE would not be what it is today. As a thank you to you all we will be running 10 days of giveaways over on Facebook for the 10 years!
We have been working hard behind the scenes to rebrand our logo and freshen up the website.
Huge thanks to the brilliant team at Creative Graphics for a sterling job!
I love it! Hope you all do too x
We are excited and privileged to be working alongside Masta.
We get sent lots of fantastic products to test, trial and use on our horses and report back to Masta.
We have been extremely impressed with the quality of the products, especially the protechmasta range which has amazing beneficial qualities for our horses.
We share lots of posts and comments over on our social media forums about all the products we are currently trialling out, take a look.
This summer we added to our fabulous facilities with the installation of Theraplate.
I have always had a keen interest in rehabilitation and this piece of kit is amazing at aiding our horses recovery, reducing rest time, kick starting rehab, and generally boosting strength and conditioning.
We are welcoming many clients to use this facility and out liveries are also benefitting hugely from it too.
We offer many packages to suit all budgets so everyone can feel the benefit of this tool.
Our results we have seen so far are quite amazing so I’m excited to be able to help more horse and rider combos get back to thei best.
Between March and August SFE hosted a fantastic Combined Training series, this was kindly sponsored by Aya Sophia Greek Restaurant in Hebden Bridge.
These competitions were very positively received, everyone having great fun and leaving with a smile! They were very well attended and it was great to see so many returning clients.
Huge well done to all our class winners, they are to be awarded with beautiful sashes and rosettes.
Due to the success of this year we will see a return of our Combined Training series next year.
