Horses can acclimatise to racing alongside others across the length of the gallop
and do so at varying paces
before being cooled down on the walk back
Our turning circle allows horses to run the gallop multiple times as per their training plan
The bottom of the gallop is equipped with a water walkway for cooling tendons to reduce chance of injury
