When the new block is completed in the next few weeks, over 100 stables will be available, with the impressive main stable yard comprising of 78 purpose built stables. In addition, there is an international sized indoor arena, which has recently been relaid with a top quality all-weather surface. There are also two horse walkers, an equine swimming pool and a weigh station.
In addition to the main yard with its 13 barns, we are building a brand new stable block and large new barn.
This work is due to be completed by the end of the summer and will take the total number of horses housed to well over 100.
There are two main gallops - a 4f round gallop at the top of the hill provides an ideal all-weather surface for cantering and faster work, plus is used for schooling over hurdles.The stiff uphill straight gallop is used for conditioning and fast work as well as the lower stretch providing the schooling fences for our chasers.

Purpose built equine pool with a ramp leading to a circular pool 3.5 metres deep. Equine swimming is popular with the rehabilitation and fitness of racehorses as swimming is a strenuous exercise and also is great resistance training for a sound horse.
Ian has successfully used the pool with a large number of horses who have had leg injuries or issues.
There are excellent schooling options available to Ian, including hurdles on the round gallop and fences on the straight strip.
C4 cameras visited the yard earlier in the year to film star performer Ballyalton being put through his paces under Sam Thomas. Click to view bit.ly/1q0vTCq
