Hire the Neighground
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. The small paddock adjacent to the yard contains all the bright flappy obstacles, then it’s just a case of crossing the bridleway to get to the more open area of the Neighground.
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. An elderly retired competition horse will love the thrill of getting into the trailer and going out on an adventure 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, almost entirely off road.
Adventure Neighground On Tour!
Yes, we can come to your yard. We bring a trailer full of agility obstacles and set up a course on your own facilities (a paddock, field or arena).
Groups of up to 4 horses can participate at the same time, making this a social and fun activity that can include everyone on the yard. This is perfect for the horses that worry when travelling, the owner with no transport, or the yard wishing to create an inclusive social event.
The cost is £25 per hour plus £1 per mile travel costs. There is no charge for the setting up and dismantling time. As a yard, you split the cost between the number of participants in whatever way you choose. Rosettes for all, and assistance/guidance if required.
