Gallop Testimonial

We used James Ewart’s all-weather gallops last season when the wintery weather deemed we could not get the horses galloped at home. It was a huge advantage getting the horses worked through all of the bad weather, and maintaining their fitness contributed hugely to the horse’s winning performances throughout the season. It was also a brilliant opportunity to get the younger inexperienced horses away from home into a different atmosphere, and allow them to see white railings before they had to brave the racecourse for the first time.

Katie Scott, Point-to-Point Trainer

Northern Area Mens Open Point to Point Champion; Tristan Davidson uses the Langholm Gallop two or three times per week to train his horses. Tristan previously trained Aikman on the sand who went on to win 3 point to points, his own ‘Peter Charles’ was also a winner last season.

“ I like the Langholm Gallop a lot and use it every week to get my horses fit and well prepared for their races- it is a fantastic facility to be able to use “

Tristan Davidson, Trainer
