Indoor Canter Way

Play Video

The oval one furlong, irrigated covered sand school is used daily to warm the horses up at walk, trot and canter if necessary.  Here Amanda can assess each of the horses' action and in the winter months, the covered ride is invaluable for exercising in all weather conditions.  The centre of the ride is grass, housing the weighing station where the horses are weighed once a week and before and after racing.  Each horse is given a best racing weight and a weekly weight report is produced. This area is also used as a safe, enclosed space in which to introduce the two year olds to the practice starting stalls.
