The Downs Stables are set in Findon, a beautiful village right on the Sussex downs that has been a racing village since the 1800’s. It’s a truly family run yard where Nick Gifford took over the reins from his father Josh Gifford in 2003.

Nick’s yard at The Downs Stables gives horses a stress free environment where turnout is available and individual training needs catered for. The very experienced staff, work riders and family ensure that each of the horses and owners get individual special attention – one of the great benefits of having a smaller yard.
