Livery Services 

We offer a full livery service as well as holiday & grass livery. We specialise in behaviour therapy, confidence building, and improving the relationship between you and your horse. We also provide training, re-schooling, breaking/ behaviour/ recovery therapy and competition/hunt livery. Catering for everything from simple behavioural problems to training point to point horses.

By developing fitness and individual feeding regimes we are able to improve and work your horse to be in the best possible condition, ready for the hunting or eventing season ahead.

Hunt/Event Livery

Rowena began Eventing a couple of seasons ago. She was asked to compete a difficult mare who had been described by the previous professional Event Rider as too bold to jump!! (PIC  RIGHT  WITH R AULD) 

Rowena enjoys working with horses that perhaps need a more individual approach. She is able to use alternative methods to work with these horses. Having caught the Eventing bug Rowena has quickly progressed to Novice level with unproven & often quirky horses.

We provide hunt livery services throughout the year with ample old pasture grazing for the summer and stabling on our full livery yard. Our hunt livery includes plaiting and clipping and you can expect to have your hunter kept in tip top condition with excellent quality feed and varied work regime. Great attention is paid to the aftercare of your hunter to keep him fit and sound throughout the season.

 About Us

Temple Equine is more than just stabling and livery we aim to achieve the very best environment, care and work programme for our horses. With an open minded and honest approach we do our utmost to find solutions where others just see problems.

Set on the Meldon Park Estate, in the heart of the beautiful Northumberland countryside we are surrounded by bridleways and hunt country. Our stables and paddocks offer a peaceful atmosphere in which we provide professional standards in a friendly & supportive environment.

The yard has a range of facilities including an indoor school, additional facilities are available to hire on the estate including XC and gallops.

Breaking & ReschoolingLivery

We work consistently and calmly with young horses and have built a reputation for backing and starting unbroken horses in a way that is a positive and educational experience for them.

The Team at Temple Equine includes light weight TB & SJ jockey Caroline Graham & Intermediate young event rider Polly Bickersteth. Between us we have a diverse team of capable & experienced riders who are trained in Rowena's methods. 

Team Temple are in our 5th year here on the Meldon Estate & are proud to receive horses from across the North East Scotland & Yorkshire for our specialist re-schooling services.  

"Amazing results with my youngster, she was treat like one of her own and I will be sending her back again for schooling!"

"Can't praise team Temple Equine enough for the way they have broken in and looked after my youngster. They have really turned him around from never having anyone on his back to being ridden out on hacks and going over his first jump! So pleased. Thanks Rowena, Kaz, Polly, Scarlet and Aggie (the goat) x"

Our methods help to build trust, boundaries and confidence and encourage young horses to enjoy and find their early ridden experiences fun. With 25 years experience working with young horses across the UK and Europe, Rowena has developed her own system using a combination of traditional and modern horsemanship.

"Our young horses gain a wealth of experience on mixed terrain learning to cope with water, gates, traffic and can be produced to which ever stage you as their owner wish."

Owners are welcome to be as involved as they wish and are able to visit and watch at any stage  of our work.

Please get in touch for more info and if you would like to speak to any of our testimonials.

We also provide opportunities for owners & young people to train and develop their skills during ground-work training sessions, courses, and work experience.


Suzi - Myself and my young nervous unschooled horse sought help and guidance from Rowena to build both his and my confidence, as well as to have him well schooled. After 4 weeks at Temple Equine Livery he was a former shadow of himself, as was I.  Rowena was patient, explained everything she was doing and why, and was friendly and helpful at all times. I would highly recommend anyone looking for any form of horse guidance to contact her ASAP. Even if you are looking to change yards.. you will find everything you need at Temple..

Sally -  My horse came for serious issues with traffic we had had a nasty accident and i really thought he would never be safe in trafic. But he proved us wrong and having seen Rowena riding him on the roads without issue i have seen how much i need to work on my fear of traffic!!

Jude - Approx 3 months ago a friend of mine told me about Temple Equine, who help with problem horses. Porsche is a 4 yr old mare that I have been struggling to do basic tasks like leading her to the field without her rearing , not only that but she was very temperamental  not aggressive but most times frightening. My confidence was totally knocked that I could no longer deal with anything to do with her. Rowena Auld who runs this company not only has her going forward but jumping and enjoying herself . I never imagined in such little time yet at all Porsche would come right. I have even rode her. Temple Equine Livery and Training have a very relaxing yard who help you through all your anxietys and not only aid your horse in the right direction but also help the owners deal with their problems. I am so grateful for all her help ..........Without her i don't know what Porsche's outcome would have been. Temple Equine also post videos and pics of how your horse is coming on even if your unable to attend the yard. Thanks for everything xxxxx
