Swimming Pool

Play Video

An equine swimming pool is an essential facility for training horses. Our indoor pool, which was built in 1991, has proved to be an invaluable training aid for problem horses whose injuries whould otherwise have stopped them from exercising.

This pool, has been most important for retaining and maintaining a basic level of fitness for horses that are recovering from injury and can be an integral part of training regimes for specific horses. Ligament injuries, tendon injuries, muscle problems, stress and chip fractures are given "weightless" exercise in the pool, rather than standing in their boxes. It can also be used to freshen horses up after a busy campaign or that need to loosen up before exercise. 

The use of the swimming pool was invaluable in the training of Baron's Pit bfore his win in the Group 2, Diadem Stakes and Polish Patriot before his win in the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket.

The complex is complete with two solarium booths for drying the horses and keeping their muscles warm and two enclosed sand pits for them to roll in.
