"A good horse makes short miles."
- George Elliot
Equestrian at Coworth Park is housed in the purpose built American barn stables of The Polo Club. All the Loddon boxes have rubber matting flooring and are supplemented with hemp bedding which is recycled for use around the estate by the gardeners. We also have an automatic waterer system which reduces wastage of water used, all these facilities are vital to our eco-conscious operation as they reduce the amount of waste created by the stables. We have a specially created separate grooming barn where the horses are prepared for riding and washed down after exercise.
Setting out from the stables we have 240 acres of off-road hacking through our private estate, rides take in the views of the main house and estate cottages, the ponds, woodlands and the two international polo fields, whilst there are opportunities for a trot and canter on the oval gallop track with a synthetic sand and rubber surface.
For lessons on-site we use the fully fenced stick and ball field where we have a teaching paddock, 20 x 60 metre international dressage arena and an intermediate level show jumping course which can be altered to accommodate all levels of ability and confidence.
