The grass gallop is situated inside the oval woodchip gallop.
A set of 10 bay starting stalls and regulation hurdles and steeplechase fences are available adjacent to the grass gallop.
The area within the oval gallop is situated in a beautiful setting, surrounded by trees, 25 acres of flat, mown grass, ideal to create show rings for events.
There is a hard standing parking area, toilet block and water taps on-site. The access road makes it easily accessible, and an ideal facility for summer shows, competitions and tournaments.
There is the opportunity to hire the gallops, indoor arena and conference centre to hold an extra spectacular equine (or canine) event.

As from 1st June 2020, we feel we can operate a safe environment and put social distance rules in place thanks to being a large spacious outdoor venue. Therefore as of today and in light of Government advice, our equine facilities are now open for external bookings.
All hires will be pre-booked and paid for over the telephone so there will be no contact on-site at all. Bookings can be made by calling (07392) 085785 Monday – Friday 9.00am until 3.00pm – this is the only number bookings will be taken on.
As of April 2020, we are following British Horseracing Authority (BHA) Equine Influenza Vaccination ruling. During the remainder of 2020, for a horse or pony to be eligible to compete/travel in Britain it will be necessary to have received an approved equine influenza vaccination within the last 12 months, instead of the existing 6-month requirement, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The 12-month approach reflects the policy that was in place in Britain prior to 2019.
Therefore, horses and ponies that enter our site for shows, clinics, training days and competitions must have Equine Influenza vaccinations that comply with the 12-month ruling. Show organisers will check ALL passports on arrival and the venue will also carry out passport checks where necessary. Please have your passport ready to present to show secretaries at entries and when asked to be seen by a member of National Horseracing College staff.
