We run an open house policy and welcome owners, friends, family and general racing supporters at all times. Please just give us a call and let us know you're coming so we can ensure there are biscuits in the tin and the kettle is boiled!
We have a number of different surfaces and distances for galloping including; 4.5f all-weather carpet hill gallop. A circular gallop which is very good for settling a young horse, teaching continuous stamina and to breathe correctly within its stride and a mile grass gallop for quicker work.
Our outdoor arena is a vital part of our training system and has proved very useful when backing young horses and coaching staff. Most of the horses do some flatwork and loose schooling on a weekly basis. This facility has also proved particularly useful during extremes of weather when it may be too icy/snowy.
Alongside our hurdles and fences, we regularly jump in the school ensuring that all horses relax and enjoy their jumping, without seeing it as a big event. Regular jump work is a key part of the training as it allows us to build up all the correct muscles to make a good chaser.
Most horses use the walker on a daily basis as an addition, not a substitute to ridden work. It is useful for warming up and cooling down the horses before and after work.
We have plenty turnout available to ensure horses have variety and are healthier both mentally and physically.
We use many local fields and bridleways as they have varying gradients, which all help the balance and preparation before going to the racecourse. The local area provides a relaxed hacking environment for the horses to enjoy on their easy days and keep them fresh including a cool stream for their legs.
We have an office on-site which ensures Kayley can mix the administration work required to keep the yard running smoothly with watching the horses closely, helping the staff, riding out herself and not miss entries or declaration deadlines!
We have a solarium which is great for relaxing muscles and for the colder months to keep coats shiny, we use it for grooming in / drying off after a good bath.
We have a Haygain to steam our hay. It is the only scientifically proven way to purify hay and reduce the health threat from respirable dust, mould spores and pathogens.
