At Kinneston, our principal motive is to focus on the fitness and health of the horses in our care. We believe that for them to fulfill their potential they must be in the right zone mentally and physically, this is the way we ensure an owner will receive maximum reward for their investment and time.
We are fortunate to have the facilities to allow us to do this; they are a continual work in progress with us seeking to make improvements month by month. We believe that our exceptional facilities will maximize a horse’s fitness which combined with a quietly-efficient and relaxed yard will allow horses to thrive and be at ease.
In 2017 the facilities at Kinneston benefited from a major upgrade with the construction of two new all weather gallops; a five furlong carpet fibre gallop and a three furlong oval sand gallop. These complement the existing three furlong cushiontrack hill gallop and the 80 acres of grass gallops which combined with two all weather schools and extensive hacking has created an exceptional private training facility. This allows a bespoke training programme to be developed for each horse in training which combined with a quietly efficient and relaxed yard creates an ideal environment for horses thrive and feel at ease.
In addition to the gallops Kinneston has 800 acres of farmland and forestry tracks, a wide variety of turnout facilities and extensive private summer grazing.
There are 37 individual boxes and three barns to accommodate pairs of horses.
Horses start to learn to jump in the two all weather schools prior to graduating to a line of four schooling hurdles or a line of half a dozen varied obstacles (tyres, barrels, poles and baby fences) and finally the Easyfix schooling fences.
