Horse walker/exerciser

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.

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.

Runabout

Our new Indoor Riding School is now operational. This is Claire jumping under lights
