Developments at Longholes
The plans to transform Longholes into a state of the art commercial rehabilitation and pre-training centre for racehorses have been progressing at a pace over the last few months.
The construction of a new yard of 12 stables has recently been finished, and a second barn-style complex of boxes is half-way to completion.
In addition, the 2½f oval all-weather gallop is also half-way to completion, and will be ready for the winter months. It will be a valuable addition to our exercise facilities which also includes a 7f grass gallop set on an incline on old established turf.
Longholes is also now one of the few yards to have a 10-horse oval covered horse walker, and groundworks are underway to construct an 18-metre lunge pen.
To compliment the ever expanding facilities, an experienced and dedicated team of staff are now in place at Longholes to cater for the wide variety of racehorses coming to the centre for rehabilitation or pre-training.
