Heatherlea

Beautiful holiday cottage nestled on a country lane in the village of Otterburn. Sleeps up to seven with modern facilities and an enclosed back garden. Only a five minute walk away from the stud.

Facilities

At Girsonfield a number of facilities ensure that your horse receives both balanced and effective training for the racecourse. 

All Weather Gallop

This 2 furlong circular gallop with a sand and rubber surface is the mainstay of steady canter work.

Hill Gallop

A 3 furlong gallop that utilises our land well. The steep hill is excellent for improving or maintaining fitness.

Grass Gallop

With 2 furlongs over level ground and then a further 3 furlongs up hill, this grass gallop is our longest and also features starting stalls.

Claydon Horse Exerciser

Used for warming up and cooling down horses before and after exercise. Essential for maintaining fitness.

Schooling Facilities

These include hurdles, 'mini-hurdles', show jumps, poles, and fences including an open ditch. Logs and sleeper jumps are also used when hacking out.

Round Pen

An important facility for breaking in young horses. Horses start their education here by being lunged and backed.

All Weather Arena
 
 
An enclosed space that allows us to loose school horses over jumps, long rein, and begin being ridden for the first time.
Stabling
 
 
All of our horses in training are stabled in a barn system with comfortable and secure Lodden boxes.
