The Neighground is what you probably guessed it is – a playground for horses!
There are a variety of obstacles to tackle, either in-hand or ridden. All obstacles can easily be bypassed, and each one can be tackled in a variety of ways. Our clients amaze us with their imagination and always seem to come up with yet another way to work with what we provide!
Examples of obstacles include a rocker bridge, over-head dangling objects, a tyre maze and a step. There are always over a dozen different obstacles available, and all are achievable by any size of horse or pony. We recommend that all horses are allowed to explore the Neighground in-hand first, and for many people this is enough of a challenge for the first few sessions. It is also a great place to bring a youngster who hasn’t seen very much, or a horse who doesn’t go out to shows/events for whatever reason. A elderly retired competition horse will love the thrill of getting into the trailer and going out again!
Most people hire an hour on the Neighground, but there are various add-on options available.
We take a maximum of 4 horses in one booking.
One horse for one hour is £15
For each additional horse, or hour (this could be the arena, field with jumps etc) add on another £5
Other facilities on-site include a brew-room with tea, coffee etc provided and a microwave for reheating your lunch on cold days and toilet facilities. We are next door to Green Haworth Golf Club which has a bar and serves hot meals on weekends through the summer (lunchtime only).
Finally, as we are directly on a bridleway, you can end your day with a hack or an in-hand walk, ranging from 20 minutes to an hour, almost entirely off road.
You can get a sneak preview of one obstacle – the Big Tyre in the video below.
