The cross-country course is open for hire, providing the ground conditions are favourable.
There are a range of fences available, including our water complex. A real chance
to overcome all your cross-country demons.
You must book in advance and unfortunately we may have to postpone your booking if
the conditions deteriorate too much before your session takes place. Each rider
is required to complete a registration form to be found in the hut and it is their
responsibility to do this. Contact Sarah to book.
Angerton Steads Training Arena is a floodlit 70m x 40m all weather surface and organises
training from the best local, national and international trainers providing a unique
opportunity to develop both horse and rider in the heart of Northuumberland. There
is ample parking and easy access.
Angerton Steads Training Arena was constructed with help from a DEFRA grant to help
to diversify some land on the farm. The Arena was constructed by Jim Woods, a local
drainage and excavation contractor from Haydon Bridge. The work took three months
to complete. It comprises a surface of silica sand and chunks of rubber and fibre.
There are ten floodlights around the outside to allow use in the dark evenings and
early mornings all year round.
At one end of the arena a portable cabin has been installed to provide shelter and
coffee making facilities are available.
A complete set of show jumps is available for use. As well as booking onto organised
training sessions (see our Training Events page for details) the arena is available
to be hired by individuals for their own use. Clubs and groups are also welcome
to hire the facilities and to bring their own chosen trainers. See our Hiring the
Arena page for more details.
The arena was launched with a fantastic training event with the legendary Lucinda
