Welcome To James Ewart Racing
British Race Horse Training Facility in Scotland, UK
Thank you for visiting the James Ewart Racing website giving you an insight into our horses in training, horses for sale, the facilities available, and our general yard information along with links to our Yard Blog and Twitter and Facebook updates.
We have a team of experienced English and British equestrian trainers who specialise in preparing thoroughbred horses for flat and national hunt racing. Our trainers’ excellent techniques and state of the art centre combine to ensure racing success.
Flat national hunt races are designed for three year old horses which have yet to compete in flat racing. For horses that have never jumped obstacles, national hunt flat racing provides the experience of the course without the fences or hurdles. Our experienced trainers employ flat racing to ensure that horses are fully prepared for their racing careers.
We have 47 Horses in Training here at Craig Farm and a new satellite yard fully enclosed with 9 licensed stables at Warwick Lodge Stables in Middleham. Managed by Barry and Stef Keniry who also run a successful breaking and pre training yard. Barry rode winners for James and Neil so it’s nice to come full circle.
Our trainers also have a band of Broodmares including Think Green, Overlady and High Meadow Girl with a nice colt foal by Multiplex on the ground.
Our Horse Training Facilities
Our equine training Facilities include a diverse mix of training gallop surfaces. The Sand Gallop, with deep sand for resistance training and fitness, The Tapeta™ Gallop for all weather, fast work and light training, and the Grass Gallop inclusive of three sets of Easyfix® fences and hurdles for the finishing work. Also The Ménage with poles and tyres and the lunge ring for preparation work and the invaluable bespoke 10 bay Horse Walker.
These facilities, combined with our trainers’ expertise, ensure that our horses are trained to an exceptionally high standard.
