Woodchip Gallops The College boasts two wood-chip gallops. The oval, six furlong gallop lends itself well to endurance and stamina training, while the straight gallop is perfect for interval training. The straight gallop is on a gradient and is largely open, while the oval gallop is fully railed and benefits from furlong markers. Grass Gallop The grass gallop is situated inside the oval all-weather 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 extends to approximately 25 acres/10 hectares, lending itself particularly well to hosting shows, competitions and tournaments. Schooling fences In the centre of the oval gallops are the new EasyFix hurdles and fences which are available to hire for schooling. Racehourse Simulators Housed in the Victorian stable yard are two racehorse simulators. The room has mirror facilities and audio visual equipment on which to view previously recorded riding footage.
