Depart from Broadway at 8.15am for the short journey to Jackdaws Castle where you will collect the mornings work sheet before heading off to the indoor school to watch the mornings 3rd lot warm-up. As the horses depart you will follow them out on to the gallops, where you will watch them work on one of our various gallops, under the watchful eye of Jonjo and his team whilst taking in the stunning scenery of this magical setting.
You will then return to the yard to watch a horse swim in our equine pool and then use the solarium; this is truly a ‘5-Star Hotel’ for equine thoroughbreds.
Next you will be guided around the yard meeting our equine heroes and taking in the daily life of this amazing yard. You could be visiting on a day when our top jockeys are in schooling the horses or watch our resident farriers at work as they prepare the horses.
