Our Facilities


Barford Racing Stables is well equipped to cater for all your horses’ needs. With easy access to the M5, the yard which can accomodate up to 40 horses, is set in the idyllic landscape which borders Exmoor and the Somerset Levels.


There is an outdoor arena, an indoor school with jumping lane, schooling fences, stalls, a five-bay Claydon horsewalker and extensive turnout. The well-known six-furlong Snowcombe Gallop is just a short hack away, an ideal warm up before routine or more serious work on its’ carpet fibre surface, with an additional six furlong flat grass gallop laid for use in 2022.
