About Karen Hague, Yard Manager, Grimshaw Equestrian

Karen and her Thoroughbred mare, SallyA West Midlands girl born and bred, from a showjumping and eventing background, Karen has successfully run yards all over the UK for the last 18 years. In June 2011, however, she decided to move back home to be closer to her family. Having grown up not far from Ullenhall, Karen knows the area very well and had competed and run livery yards here until well into her 20s.

Having horses of her own, Karen’s main requirements when looking for a yard to run were the same as most horse owners looking for livery. These are listed opposite.

Whilst Grimshaw Equestrian offers top spec facilities for anyone looking to compete, it’s also suitable for happy hackers or novice riders & owners. Karen treats all horses and ponies with the same care; regardless of breed, type or value (ditto the owners!). You can read some of her references below:

Karen’s yard requirements - Q&A

Q: Is there enough grazing for year-round turnout?
A: Yes and our field management program will always ensure we have enough grazing (extreme weather permitting!)

Q: Is there any barbed wire?
A: No (in a word!)

Q: Are the boxes a good size?
A: Yes. One of my horses is a 17h.h. warmblood and the boxes are plenty big enough for her

Q: Is there good hacking on quiet roads?
A: Not only is there great hacking around Ullenhall, there’s
also miles of private, off-road riding on the estate, which liveries have use of

Q: Is there a secure tackroom?
A: Yes. It’s alarmed, has a 5-lever mortice lock and it’s behind two doors. There’s also CCTV

Q: Is the yard secure at night?
A: Yes. Staff live on site, as do the owners (who have their own horses here).  There’s a huge, security gate which is locked at night, plus there are a couple of properties at the entrance

Q: Is there an arena
or ménage?
A: Yes. We have two excellent arenas, plus a full set of show jumps. One arena is 20 x 60m  with training mirrors and the other is 20 x 40m. Both have excellent surfaces and we also have an all-weather, lunging circle
