Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Can I meet you there or come in the horsebox?
You are welcome to come in the horsebox or meet us there.
2. Why is the gallops experience only on offer for a couple of months of the year?
During the Winter months the gallops are fairly quiet so there is less chance of interrupting the training of eventers and jockeys.
3. What is the minimum age?
4. What clothing should I bring?
During December/January (especially in the exposed area of the gallops) it can be bitterly cold so do dress appropriately. You must provide your own hat and safety equipment for away rides ie gallops, day rides, hunting, beach rides, sponsored rides etc.
