To conform to government guidelines the following applies to all bookings of the outdoor arena:

  1. All external customers are to turn up no earlier than 15 minutes before their booking, and must leave the yard no later than 15 minutes after their booking.
  2. A booking is limited to a single household, and a maximum of two horses (1 rider + 1 groom per horse).
  3. External customers must not enter the yard, this is for livery customers only, therefore please tie up next to your lorry/trailer.
  4. Hand sanitiser has been placed by the gates, this must be used upon entry to the school.
  5. The toilet facilities are closed to all customers
  6. All normal arena rules are still enforced.


We have been working hard to re-open Sower Hill in a safe manner for livery and external customers. We are happy to announce from 18th May 2020 the Outdoor arena will be open for all. A number of restrictions and guidelines will be in place to ensure social distancing is maintained.
