Our Indoor Arena 20m x 40m provides excellent protection whatever the weather in summer and winter! You and your horse can stay dry without being blown across the arena and still hear what your Instructor is saying.
Mirrors can enhance your training experience with or without an Instructor. You can check your posture and alignment and if something doesn’t feel quite right you can see what your horse is doing as well as feeling what’s going on. How useful would it be to see exactly what your Instructor is saying as well as feeling it? – Invaluable!
The building has a ventilated roof and sides, so it does not become stuffy in hotter and more humid weather. Roof lights improve visibility during daylight hours and electric lighting ensures you can extend your day and ride in the evenings and/or dull days in winter. All of which make for a more comfortable and productive training experience for you and your horse and results matter to all of us. Happy horses and happy riders are what we aim for.
The sand and rubber surface is maintained, watered and levelled on a regular basis to ensure it remains in excellent condition for both flatwork and jumping. Dressage letters are included, and jumps are available.
Opened October 2014 60m x 25m with sand and flexiride surface giving your horse plenty of room and comfort in your training sessions. Perfect for practising 60m dressage tests, complete with a full set of dressage markers. Everyone who has ridden on it says how good the surface is to ride on including:
George Whitaker at our Open Day who said “It’s a great surface to jump your horse on.”
“A friendly professional run yard, with good facilities. The indoor arena provides a light, dry working environment, the surface is always well maintained, giving your horse enough support, without being too deep. I feel working on a good surface is very important to prevent stress upon the horses limbs. In addition there are a variety of jumps to work with, so building a course can be achieved.” Bekki Marsden BHSII (SM) REGD
