Stable Visits

When you step into a racing yard, you are stepping into another world. It's a world of dreams and downright hard work. Most of the stable staff have started their careers in racing, filled with enthusiasm.

Most stable visits are free of charge to Members. Obviously there's no obligation to actually go, but it really is an experience to savour and well worth the effort.

Some stable visits include an opportunity to watch the horses on the gallops. You may spot a future winner or you may see an up-and-coming young rider with all the style and ability to make it to the top. You might even spot top jockeys riding.

Read what some of our Members have to say...

  • Martyn E., Maidstone, says; "I would like to thank James Fanshawe and the staff at Pegasus Stables for making us so welcome. It was my first visit to a racing stables. It was immensely enjoyable and interesting. In the August sunshine, Pegasus Stables looked a beautiful place to train racehorses. It was also my first visit to the gallops on Newmarket Heath. All the horses looked well on the gallops. He also consented to having his photograph taken several times. Thanks again to all the staff at Pegasus Stables."
  • Barbara A., Alton, says; "Thank you for two really superb visits to Andrew Balding and Kirtlington Stud. You do these visits very well and I think the Club is good value for money."
  • J.B., Paulton, says; "I would just like to say how much my wife and I enjoyed the stable visit to Andrew Balding. We both thought how well organised the visit was."
  • I.J., Deeside, says; "Thank you very much for arranging the visit to Donald McCain's establishment. My friend and I enjoyed every minute of it."
  • D.W., Tunbridge Wells, says; "Just a short note to say how much my brother and I enjoyed our visit to Seven Barrows. Nicky was very informative about all of his horses, but still managed to give the information in a light-hearted way, which kept everybody thoroughly entertained. No effort was spared to show all of his stars, which were well-presented by his stable staff. All in all a day to remember."
  • Galen C., Devon, says; "Thank you for the superb day at Barbury Castle…You even managed to arrange that fantastic sunshine for us!!! It was so good of Alan King to show us all his Cheltenham horses, as well as our two, and to talk at such length about each one and to enable us to see them at such close quarters. I was thrilled to see ours in "the flesh"."
  • Paul E., Shrewsbury, says; "We very much enjoyed Donald McCain’s stable visit, as the location was fantastic and Donald was so friendly and informative. The visit was so well-organised, seeing some of his 120 horses on the gallops, followed by a procession of quality horses including his Cheltenham "stars" and our own Doyly Carte (referred to as a "flying machine" by Donald)."
