Schooling Ground

Richard’s schooling ground overlooks the stunning village of Adlestrop and the horses jump on turf that has been laid to grass for centuries. The facilities include a multitude of obstacles including logs, barrels, baby hurdles and full-sized hurdles plus baby fences and full-sized steeplechase fences.

With Richard’s theory that practice makes perfect many of his string are regularly schooled over the obstacles as part of their training programme.

Paddy Power Gold Cup winning jockey Ian Popham who regularly rides for the yard says: “The great variety of obstacles and fences are a huge help in ensuring that all runners jump with a good technique and confidence when reaching the track.”
