Facilities

South Downs Equine has a good range of equestrian facilities available on-site.

There is a large airy barn which contains five 12ft x 12 ft stables, one 12ft x 16ft stable, and two 15ft x 15ft stables which are particularly suitable for larger horses, horses requiring box rest, or horses requiring rehabilitation.

Behind the barn are an additional three 10ft x 10ft stables are available for ponies or smaller horses.

Beside the barn are two xxft x xxft stables, and there is also an adjacent yard area with four more xxft x xxft stables, plus grooming / wash down facilities, and a solarium.

The tack room is fully secured, and CCTV is installed for additional protection.

There is a separate rug room, plus a feed store, and there is a yard cat to deter unwanted visitors!

Within the barn is a kitchen area, and toilet facilities are located on-site.

Liveries have access to the 20m x 40m floodlit sand school, which has a waxed, multi fibre surface, and can be used most of the year.

In the summer months, a dedicated paddock is available for schooling and show-jumping, and there are a range of show jumps available to use both in the paddock and the sand school.

The fields are well maintained, and divided into twelve separate paddocks, with post and rail fencing, to allow all year turnout. This can be in pairs, or independent, depending on a client’s wishes.

Excellent hacking is available, with direct access from the paddocks to a bridleway on the South Downs. This leads to numerous rides across the Downs to Friston Forest and beyond.

Road work can also be undertaken on country lanes nearby.

Given the close proximity to the coast, transportation can be arranged to enable beach rides.
