Stable Visits

Accordingtojodie then Moel Famau

We are privileged to be able to offer our members stable visits throughout the year to some of the finest racing stables in the country. Our long standing reputation and the enthusiasm and understanding shown by our members allows us unrivalled access and engagement throughout the training community. We love nothing more than providing members with the inside track on everything from the workings of a yard, the routine of some of the best horses in the world or even gleaning some horses to follow that may not be so well known.

Visits are hosted by the trainer or, when work and travel commitments may intervene, an experienced member of the stable staff, giving unparalleled insight into the horses, training methods and future hopes for their stars.

It is only possible to run our stable visits through the good will of trainers. Most take no payment for our visits, with the ticket price covering the administration of the event and any surplus being given to the yard's stable staff pot or a charity of their choice. With this in mind, please read our safety & etiquette guide for stable visits, which will help you to feel comfortable on the visit and get the most out of the day.

Stable visits are a great opportunity to meet your equine heroes and gain a greater appreciation of the industry as a whole. Book on to one of our stable visits below!

Yearlings who began to arrive at Musley Bank in November are now two year olds, come February, just four months into their training. Canters on the gallops are still tentative, as immature bodies and minds get used to their new found jobs. The Flat season will be far from racegoers minds but the early months of the new year are a key time for flat trainers, keen to give their inmates the very best possible start. Milestones and targets reached now ensure ambitions can be fulfilled months down the line, getting these early days wrong could mean paying the price all season long. Richard Fahey walks this tightrope better than most and has generally offered Club members a fascinating visit at this unique time of year.
