On the gallops at Thorne Farm Racing

At Thorne Farm Racing our carpet fibre gallop  is 7.5 furlongs long and is designed specifically to take advantage of the wonderful topography that the Thorne Farm offers. It starts at the bottom of the valley rising to just below  Stoodleigh Beacon which is the highest point between Exmoor and Dartmoor at  987ft above sea level. Our carpet fibre gallop and our outdoor school are available for private hire. Please contact the office for more information.

We also have a 3.5 furlong grass gallop which is wonderful old Devon turf that can be ridden in any weather. Our schooling facilities consist of 3 plain fences and an open ditch, 3 hurdles, and 4 tyre jumps. Top jockey Tom Scudamore describes our schooling facilities as one of the best as does former top jockey Rodi Greene.
