What to expect

You will be able to see a yard in full swing, seeing 3rd lot pull out and be paraded followed by watching them at exercise on the sand canter. A wonder around all the barns (lots of stable stars to see), see the equine spa in use, farrier at work, access to speak with senior members of staff & be hosted by our Assistant Trainer - Robin Smith. We will also do a questions & answers session!! Alan King might not be present on the day.
