Facilities

Sand school

We have an outdoor sand school measuring 20m x 40m, equipped with jump poles, wings, blocks and cones. The sand school is sheltered on 3 sides and is not overlooked.

 

The 'Flat Log' and 'Banana'

There are more than 40 permanent cross country jumps spread over 10 acres, ranging in height from 20cm to 90cm. There are drops, banks, troughs, ditches, coffins, water (when it rains), both bespoke and commercially designed (all professionally staked down).

Mounting blocks

Our premises consist of a spacious concrete car park, with a sloped tarmac drive to the stable yard. We have stabling for 9 horses or ponies, plus stalls and tie ups for a further 15 horses and ponies.

Show jumping paddock

Our show jumping paddock is in use from April to October. We have a full set of wooden show jumps with safety cups and keyhole tracks for the spreads.

Summer polo pitch

A full size outdoor polo field is normally 274m long and 146m wide.
Our polo pitch at Cornilo Riding is 100m long and 30m wide. 

This means that we don't gallop, mostly trot and canter.

We also have the occasional infamous 'walking chukka' which is great for understanding the rules and rights of way!
 

Dressage arena in lower cross country paddock

We are lucky to be able to enjoy a 40m x 20m grass dressage arena during the summer months. Sometimes we make it a 60m x 20m arena.

Summer gazebo

Our indoor facilities include seating and kitchenette, toilet and handwashing, gazebos in the summer, heated office and tack room, lecture room, plus a small 20m x 20m indoor school for those who really cannot tolerate British weather!

Riding home

We have some beautiful bridlepaths and green roads through a varied countryside of chalk downland and woodland. Birds of prey, field bords and wild animals are often seen throughout our hacks.

We do use roads, but all of them are lanes, and we are lucky to have local drivers who are thoughtful of how they share the roads with us.
