Court Equestrian has a wide range of facilities which are based on
the stable complex and associated arenas and paddocks at Priors Court, plus
additional paddocks and stables a short distance away (easy hack across farmland),
and land rented from a neighbouring farmer.

Court Equestrian has a large number of stables/loose boxes. of different sizes and design, suitable for all types of horses and ponies, including mares in foal.
The horse walker/exerciser is used to keep horses fit, and to keep them exercised if they have not been ridden for a while, or if the owner feels they need additional work
Covered waiting area
We have a number of areas where horses and ponies can be tethered between rides, including this large covered waiting area, which is particularly useful in both very hot or cold/wet weather.
This is a view of one of the many stable blocks that we have at Court Equestrian, for our own school horses and livery horses and ponies
Handling bales, feed, muck
With the large number of horses & ponies at Court Equestrian, we need serious help in handling material. Our main tractor has forks for pallets, squeeze forks for bales, and a long spike for large bales, as well as a post rammer for planting fence posts and a power take off for other implements. Our smaller tractor mainly handles stable waste.
This little quad allows us to carry a few bales, quickly around the grounds.
Our new Indoor Riding School is now operational. This is Claire jumping under lights
