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 our facilities ensure that your horse receives both balanced and effective training for the racecourse. 

All-weather (Carpet Fibre) Hill Gallop with Water Walkway and Turning Circle

A four furlong gallop on site. The incline on the hill is excellent for improving and maintaining fitness. Now better than ever with a water walkway, turning circle and resurfaced with carpet fibre.

All-weather Circle Gallop

This two furlong circular gallop with a sand and rubber surface is the mainstay of steady build-up canter work.

Grass Gallop

A flat grass gallop. During the summer the horses love a change and we can use the 5 furlong grass gallop in a huge circle around two fields.

All-weather Arena

An enclosed space for loose schooling horses over jumps. This includes hurdles, 'mini-hurdles', show jumps, poles, and fences including an open ditch. Logs and sleeper jumps are also used when hacking out.

Lunge Pen

For starting off new horses.

Starting Stalls

On-site training for our Flat horses. They learn to long rein through the stalls at an early age. Once near a race, we take advantage of the pre-stalls assessments at Newcastle Racecourse.

Stabling

High quality stabling including open air stables for horses with respiratory issues.

Monarch Solarium

As well as improving the horses general health and well-being, the solarium can be used on a daily basis to help quickly dry horses avoiding muscles damage, tightening up and chills.

Schooling Facilities

Hurdles and fences for training our National Hunt horses.

Grazing

Ample grazing for horses out of work.

Newcastle Racecourse

Our horses benefit from training at Newcastle Racecourse. Unbeatable preparation for a race day.

Haylage

Making our own haylage keeps costs down and quality up and consistent.

Foaling Facilities

We have all the neccesary facilities and expertise to foal mares and raise foals.

Horse Walkers

Used for warming up and cooling down horses before and after exercise. We have two horse walkers enabling us to exercise up to 11 horses at once and being much safer than riding around roads.
