Why come to Swallowfield EC?

Having your horse based at Swallowfield Equestrian Centre has a great number of advantages, not least of which is our envious location. Set in 80 acres of unspoilt countryside, we are only fifteen minutes by car from the major motorway networks of the M42, M40, M69, and situated within easy reach of Stratford upon Avon, Warwick, Solihull, Coventry and Leamington Spa. Yet the centre, being located in a designated green belt area, is surrounded by countryside full of farmland rides, bridleways and hacking through some of the most picturesque villages in Warwickshire.

Swallowfield EC is rapidly becoming the 'centre of excellence' for dressage, providing a top class livery service with unrivalled facilities for the competition rider and their specialist livery needs. We also welcome the busy horse owner who wants to purely enjoy their riding in a relaxed but reassuringly professional environment.

With the popularity and frequency of our on-site competitions, we have seen a steady increase in demand from owners and riders for centres which are able to offer specialist schooling and training. We employ a team of dedicated staff and provide in-house training for dressage with Jo Swain, a Level 3 British Dressage Coach and qualified show jump trainers.

As a BHS approved livery yard and BD approved competition venue, Swallowfield EC is committed to delivering the highest standards of livery service, horse welfare, yard and competition facilities - and happy clients! We offer a full range of exceptional livery packages with optional top up services to meet all our clients and their horses' individual requirements.

For additional flexibility, you can interchange within the tiers i.e. you may opt for the convenience of full livery during the cold, wet winter months then opt for part livery during the spring and warmer summer months.

Our tiered livery services allow owners and riders to have the freedom to choose the livery package most suited to their specific needs, budget and lifestyle. Each livery option can be custom tuned so that you know you and your horse are receiving the very best service from a supportive, dedicated and professional team.

For livery enquiries please contact the office on 01564 - 784475 or email swallowfieldinfo@gmail.com for details and to arrange a visit.

    Anne-Sophie Gilson:

    My name is Anne-Sophie Gilson and I have been at Swallowfield for almost 3 years, I first had a pony called Chico who I unfortunatley had to give away due to injury. However I now have Casper a 16.1hh, 7 year old, Dutch Warmblood who I have had now for almost a year. I have regular lessons with Jo Swain, who has brought on my riding and my horses way of going to a level I never thought would be possible in such a short time! I regulary compete in dressage competitons and seem to win most of them with 70%+ scores! I hope to compete on the BYRDS teams this year and qualify for the Novice and music regionals.
