OUR FACILITIES AT BELLWOOD COTTAGE STABLES

STABLES

There 35 stables at our Bellwood Cottage base and a further 30 at our Highfield yard. Many of the younger horses are kept at Bellwood Cottage whilst horses in full swing are stabled at Highfield. However, what’s most important is finding the stable which your horse is happiest in. They are all airy and are cleaned out via steam cleaners regularly.

GALLOPS

Our range of gallops is excellent and essential to the way in which we do things. We have both the use of Langton Wold gallops as well as Tim Fitzgerald’s Highfield gallops. These combined gives us the use of two polytrack gallops, a sand gallop and numerous grass gallops.

INDOOR SCHOOL

Our indoor school is situated at Highfield and is used by every horse before each lot to allow them to warm up and then after each lot to cool down. During the winter months when weather can be inclement we are never held up thanks to this furlong and a half covered ride.

SCHOOLING GROUNDS

Whilst both sets of gallops have their own schooling grounds we also have our own private one with regualtions hurdles, brush hurdles, Easyfix hurdles and fences and tyres and poles. We pride ourselves on horses jumping well and it’s the hours spent on these schooling ground that are vital in us achieving that.

EQUINE SPA

This is without doubt as useful a piece of equipment that we have. Whether and old horse is suffering from wear and tear in their joints or a horse has just badly banged a joint the spa speeds up recovery time and keeps joints ice cool.

HORSEWALKERS

We have a four-horsewalker at Bellwood Cottage and and eight-horse walker at Highfield.

PADDOCKS

At both yard we have the use of turnout paddocks. We find that this keeps a horse mentally fresh and allows them a bit of ‘down time’ in between races and whilst they are on their holidays.
