Poplar Park is the perfect venue . . .

     Here at Poplar, we are very proud of what we have on offer for horse riders of all ages and abilities.  We hire out our facilities to both individuals and groups such as riding and pony clubs.  Come for an afternoon or make a day of it and take in some hacking after you've schooled round the xc course.  Maybe you just want to get away from it all, in which case why not book a stable and stay for the weekend . . . the options are endless. 

If your an event organiser please contact us for pricing details and available dates for your competition, clinic, camp or training day. 



BE Cross Country Course

With jumps ranging from 60cm up to 1.20m, our xc course is just awesome!  We have no less than six courses:  60cm, BE80(T), BE90, BE100, BE105,  BE Novice and BE Intermediate.  However, what makes our course really special is the ground, being on free-draining sandy soil you are always guaranteed the best going for your horse.  The course is well maintained with takeoffs and landings regularly raked. 

BE Course Designers Joe Weller and Jim Hardwick update the track every year with interesting new fences designed to make the most of the natural features of the land. 

We close the course in the middle of February each year in order to prepare for our British Eventing Horse Trials in March but otherwise, we are open all year round with either a full course or a schooling course.


Course Hire is £30 per horse with no time limit.  

Further discounts are available for large groups, please contact us to discuss.  



Affiliated Showjumps

We usally have a course of showjumps available for hire.  Our jumps include plenty of fillers and planks. 

The showjumping arena is a very large grass field so there are times when we have to allow it to recover and are therefore unable to hire it 365 days a year.  However we nearly always have a grass field with a course set up available for hire.  Please give us a ring to discuss availability. 

Arena Hire is £15 per horse per hour.

Broken poles are charged at £5 per pole.

Further discounts are available for groups, please contact us to discuss.
