Moulton College’s Equestrian Centre is set on the college estate and is around 5 miles north of Northampton. The centre supports our equestrian training provision, offering world-class facilities to our students and the community. All the facilities are available for public use and we regularly host affiliated and unaffiliated dressage and show jumping events. The facilities are flexible and can be hired in combination or individually.
Completed in September 2006, this is a state-of-the-art indoor riding school. The wax-based cushion track premier surface provides a dust free environment all year round, and measures 60m × 40m. It incorporates a viewing area for 246 spectators and a judge’s box with PA system. The outdoor arena consists of two arenas side-by-side. One measures 20m × 60m, and the other 20m × 40m. The outdoor arena has an arti-turf premier surface, is floodlit, enclosed and has access to the neighbouring paddock and the cross-country course.
Both the indoor and outdoor arenas are available to hire by the hour at very competitive rates. The indoor arena is also available to hire by half the arena at a time (20m x 60m) making the costs even more competitive. We regularly have full courses of show jumps in the indoor arena too.
The Pitsford cross-country course consists of a selection of jumps, ranging from coffins and palisades, to log jumps and the bank. The bank itself has eight different jumping options. The heights range from forty centimetres to one metre and can be linked to form a number of different tracks.
At the end of the Harlow yard is a horse walker. This provides a safe environment for exercising up to five horses at a time.
The unit has 60 loose boxes, split into four yards, together with various areas of pasture land, divided into individual paddocks. The main yard of 28 stables is primarily for educational use. The stables are approximately 3.5m × 3.7m. Some stables have equimat rubber flooring and automatic water drinkers. These stables are available to hire during events out of term time at competitive rates.
We are able to offer a range of livery services. Please click here to read about our full range of livery services.
Due to the varied state-of-the-art and immaculately maintained facilities, the Equestrian Centre lends itself perfectly as a venue to hire for a whole host of other events both equine and non-equine related. We are able to offer bespoke services to help tailor-make a successful event. Your event could include hire of the indoor or outdoor school including the PA system, barriers and show jumps as well as mechanical horse hire, classroom hire, lecture theatre hire and catering services.
The following utilities and facilities can be considered for a tailor-made package to suit individual requirements which many high profile companies utilise.
