Stables at Brookover Farm, Orchardleigh, Frome. The equestrian side of Brookover Farm is managed by Heather Collingwood BHSAI and has many years of teaching experience and in particular enjoyed side saddle riding and reaching the Side Saddle Championships.

Brookover Farm also provides excellent equestrian facilities for the beginner to the more experienced rider. The farm is home to many DIY liveries for clients wishing to keep their horses/ponies here and we can also provide full livery enabling clients the peace of mind with busy lives that their horse or pony is well looked after and if required ridden to maintain fitness during the week days while clients are busy at work or at school. It is a very happy and thriving environment for both horse and rider.
