Sarah Start Equine was established in 2005 by the proprietor Sarah Stewart BHSI. Originally her base was at the beautiful Newnton House in Gloucestershire, but she moved to Aquetong Farm, Wiltshire in 2016. This stunning purpose-built yard was designed with the horse's comfort, wellbeing and training in mind. There is a large airy barn with 12 big loose boxes, all rubber matted with automatic water drinkers. There is a rubber matted wash bay with hot/ cold water, plus a solarium. Liveries/clients can benefit from our lovely heated kitchen/lecture room and a very secure tack room with plenty of storage upstairs and a WC. The rug room is large and well organised, and this also houses the feed room.
Aquetong Farm has a 19mx42m indoor arena with an Equestrian Surfaces Waxtrack surface, which the horses work beautifully on. There is also mirrors which allow riders to assess their position and horses way of going when riding on their own.
A full size 20m x 60m outdoor school with mirrors. This has an excellent all-weather surface that stands up to the coldest and wettest weather. There is also a full set of show jumps for lessons or just for giving your horses some fun.
Individual Turnout Paddocks
Top grazing used all year round. Six individual post and rail with electric paddocks. Designed to ensure that the horses have access to grass throughout the winter months, as well as being able to stretch their legs.
Large Turnout Paddocks
These bottom paddocks are post and railed with electric fencing and can be split into 4. This allows the horses an opportunity to go out in groups if this is preferable. The grazing is excellently maintained by the team at Aquetong Farm.
Sarah Stewart Equine is based on a farm, with access to the fields during the spring, summer and autumn. Unfortunately, during the winter the fields are too wet to ride on but we have lovely quiet lanes to hack around.
