What can I expect on a Course & Distance stable tour experience?
You'll enjoy a trip to the gallops to watch the racehorses being put through their paces and enjoy an exclusive, informative and entertaining tour of the stables with the trainer to gain a true insight into what it takes to train a racehorse and prepare it for a race. Afterwards you'll enjoy breakfast too.
Don't just take our word for it though, read what hundreds of happy guests have said about their memorable morning on the gallops - testimonials
Loved every minute of it. Kim, Clare and the Thorndale Farm team were fantastic, so friendly and hospitable... Would highly recommend the tour.
I know my Dad really enjoyed being back around horses. He is an avid race fan so this was an ideal gift for him! Totally fab. Thank you.
Loved it. We were taken good care of. We saw the gallops, the all weather gallops, the training jumps, the stables and lots of horses. Plenty of time in the stables, we would go again tomorrow.
I just wanted to say we had an absolutely fantastic day at Fergal O'Brien's stable, we thought it was superb. Thank you again, only took two years (due to COVID-19) but well worth the wait.
Fergal and all of his team were very welcoming - there aren't many top trainers who would make you a cup of tea themselves! Good, clear communication from yourselves.
Fantastic facilities, well-structured tour, very interesting and informative. Great gallops, very knowledgeable stable staff who presented the string very well.
We had a fantastic morning thank you and would thoroughly recommend it. It was amazing to see the horses on the gallops and witness the atmosphere within the yard.
I have had a great morning. Everything went like clockwork. Many thanks.
The care the horses get is excellent and it was so good to be close to them and see all the different personalities. We loved every minute.
I never knew such tours were an option, but I will strongly recommend to my racing friends, it is a morning not to be missed!
