The Centre is open from 7:30am to 7:30pm 363 days a year (we are closed on Christmas Day and on New Year’s Day).
The Centre is less than a kilometre from the nearest entrance to Windsor Great Park, so excellent hacking is easily available for our full-livery clients.

The Reception is the hub of the yard – open 9.00am to 6.00pm 7 days a week. It is dry and warm. There is a viewing gallery to view riding lessons in the indoor school. There are tea and coffee making facilities, vending machines with snacks or cold drinks and client lockers.
We have three all-weather schools with the latest sand/premier stabiliser surface.
The Indoor School (55m x 22m) has good natural light and it is fully illuminated. It has mirrors on two sides and a sprinkler system keeps the surface moist.
The main Outdoor School measures 65m x 30m and is floodlit.
The Small Outdoor School (Playpen) measures 38m x 18m.
We have 40 large boxes. Most are 3.6m2, some are pony boxes. All have automatic watering and a ‘haybar’ for healthy hay feeding and rubber matting. All are separately lit, have rubber matting and are bedded on straw or shavings.
We do take security seriously so you don’t have to. Both tack rooms and offices are Secom alarmed and both are locked when no one is on the yard. We have Banham’s digital CCTV. At night the main yard and front car park are illuminated. The staff house is positioned to look down on the yard, and the owners live on site too. So there is always someone on site. Entrances to the yard, barns, tack and rug rooms are locked at night. Late night checks are carried out.
We have seven paddocks fully post and railed with metal gates. All have electric fencing with automatic watering. The paddocks are carefully rotated to ensure good grazing and are kept clean on a daily basis. They are also looked after by Shorts agricultural specialists.
All courses are run from our fully equipped training room.
Our facilities are always being reviewed and updated. We take health and safety seriously. We have a regular maintenance contract and repairs can be effected immediately.
We take the management of risk associated with horses, horse care and management seriously and have developed our own assessment of risks. Whether it be riding on the roads, leading horses to field or getting hay bales down, all have risks associated that need minimising. Staff should be fluent with this, and we encourage all clients, in particular livery clients to be aware. A hard copy of the Centre’s risk assessment is available in the office but if you want your own copy you can download it here.
