We provide super facilities for all your horses' needs including:
Our Indoor school is available to our clients throughout the day, and has a new surface as of early 2019. There are also a range of jump wings and poles, a high mounting block & sound system that can have Radio, CDs or Aux input. Our clients can book the arena for sole use (i.e. Lessons or Jumping practice) at certain times of day, with peak times available for all.
(Please note: We rarely allow the arena to be hired externally, due to our clients use having priority)
To achieve all year round turnout we have 'Summer fields' and 'Winter Fields'. Our yard is based in clay, even though we are based so close to the chalk White Horse Hill, and grows good thick grass.
The 'Winter Fields' are all close to the yard, with the majority being Post & Rail fencing, wide 5 bar gates, with field sizes varying from maximum of 4 (we prefer groups of 3) down to solo fields as necessary. We are constantly improving our gateways and tracks and they have come through the winter well this year.
The 'Summer Fields' are more for our DIY clients, are around 500m from the yard (without going over any public roads etc) and having not been grazed all winter; they are lush and full of grass. Similar field sizes, horses can be left out 24/7 if necessary, although we would encourage strip grazing to help make the grass last longer, and to keep their waists so that their saddles still fit!
We have quite a few options for hacking; For example a short ride around the beautiful village leads to Woolstone Hill where riders can go through a gate onto the National Trust land. A permitted path goes up to and around the Uffington Hill Fort and just beyond is the Ridgeway Long Distance path and many miles of wonderful downland riding.
We have clients who do all the different distances, from just pootles round the local block, a 'Ride & Chat' around the neighbouring village of Uffington, and even the other extreme of one or two endurance riders who disappear up the hill for hours.
We are also within travel distance of various competition/training venues, like Hunters Equestrian (40mins), Wickestead Horseplay (25mins), Boomerang Stables (35mins) and many more.
A superb place to train horses for dressage, eventing, show-jumping and endurance, or just for happy hackers.
Both DIY & Full Livery available. For more information about exactly what these services entail, please go to the relevant tab at the top of the page.
