Polo ponies at livery at Druids are in the care of a team of dedicated professional grooms overseen by Giles and Tae Ormerod who have many years experience in the field. Most of the grooms live on-site and are able to provide 24 hour care if necessary.
At Druids we believe that there are several key points to consider when taking care of horses. These include availability of turn out, ample good quality hay or haylage and an individual programme of feeding and exercise dependent on the horse’s schedule, characteristics and abilities.
