Expert, caring agistment for your retired horse

Every old horse is a living legend — and Glenshea farm offers a diligently-supervised horse retirement service, suitable for horses and ponies of all disciplines.

As horses age and can no longer take an active role in work, sport or hobby riding, decisions on the suitability and cost of their continued stabling and pasture needs can become difficult.

A comfortable retirement agistment, at very reasonable rates, means your horse has pleasant pastures, attention and company in its twilight years.

Located near Hawkesdale in South-West Victoria, Australia, Glenshea owners Erica and Phil have a genuine affection for horses, with more than 35 years experience in horse care and various horse disciplines.

  • Daily supervision
  • Carefully maintained pastures
  • Vet and farrier on call
  • Individual or shared (small group) paddocks
  • Full feed and rugging service available
  • Monthly photos emailed to clients


A few requirements

To ensure the health and comfort of your horse, quarterly drenching, an annual dental checkup and hoof trimming as necessary are required for all horses (see the agistment page for details.)

Unfortunately, we cannot accept sick horses, or animals with severe injuries. The ‘usual ailments’ of increasing age are to be expected and we are happy to discuss any particular needs or likely requirements your horse may have.
