About Us

Stablecare has been a succesful business for over twenty years. Based in the historic racing town of Newmarket, we provide a daily laundry service for the racing and veterinary industries.

We also provide a collection and delivery service for livery yards, stud farms, tack shops, feed merchants and private owners from East Anglia through to the Surrey area on a fortnightly rota. Cleaning, repairing and re-proofing all types of horse rugs and associated items.

We take pride in our quarantine work for IRT (International Racing Transport) and BBA (British Bloodstock Agency), ensuring all horse and riders equipment is disinfected and certified before travelling abroad. Not only do we provide a laundry service for the equine and veterinary industry, we also do the laundry for our local Rugby Club each week and clean the harnesses for a outdoor leisure centre in Thetford Forest (Go Ape).

More recently we opened a shop upstairs in our unit, selling equine products including: Rugs, headcollars, grooming kits, boots, wellies and much more. All our products can be found on the shop section of our website. In addition we are now able to provide an in-house embroidery and tack repair service.
