Gallops: Available for racehorse trainers & leisure riders

Kelsall Hill All Weather Horse Gallop

4.5 furlong, public horse gallop for hire rising over 100ft from the Cheshire plains, wax coated Martin Collins all weather surface

The gallops are for public use as well as for liveries and are open every day. Please call the office to book, we cannot guarantee you will have the gallop to yourself.

Anyone can use the gallop for fitness work from racehorse & point to point trainers to endurance & leisure riders but please be mindful of each others' needs. You can combine the gallops with other products such as the farm ride, cross country or arena for a combo discounted rate. We tend to find that mornings are busiest for racehorses so if you're not planning to ride at that speed please come a little later in the day.

The gallop has a warm up track to loosen up muscles and then there's a 940m perfectly straight gallop to train on with a Martin Collins Activ Track waxed surface, Duraloc fenced on both sides, rising up over 100 feet to the top. After that there's a sand surfaced track to return to the start of the gallop for another go or to the car park. If you are doing interval training we don't mind you returning to the start by riding back down the gallop.

This facility is excellent for building fitness, stamina, suppleness and strength or simply if you just want a good blast!

Horse and Rider Safety

It is a condition of use that all riders adhere to the rules regarding use of the gallop. These are available from the office.

For safety's sake we have invested over £20,000 in erecting Duraloc running rails and we have six slip rails in the fencing to allow riders to abort their ride if necessary.

Should a horse or rider need medical attention we also have the added advantage that the fencing will unclip to allow horses to exit the gallop or to allow access for a vehicle to any part of the track.
