The sand gallops offer resistance training on a consistent surface which gives even stride patterns. This helps to improve and increase the length of the horse’s stride.
Our Sand Gallops otherwise known as ‘The Langholm Gallops’ have the following parameters:
- 5 furlongs distance
- 12 metres wide
- 1 metre deep
There is an interior and exterior white plastic racing rail with a central running rail on the straight. This allows for a division between schooling obstacles and the flat track.
Schooling obstacles include:
- 6 reversible jumping fences
- Rubber matting for safety
- Set at a 45-degree angle with a kickboard
The sand gallops are machine rotavated daily and can be harrowed dependent on schooling needs and requirements. Therefore, the quality of the surface is outstanding.
