Welcome to Poplar Park
Situated in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, amidst more than 200 acres of our own woodland and paddocks. . .
We are the home of British Eventing's 'Poplar Park Horse Trials', celebrating our 36th anniversary on the weekend of the 9th & 10th March 2019 and a second event in May 2019. A great day out for the whole family; put us in your diary now!!
Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Poplar Park is any equestrian enthusiast's dream location. On the next few pages we would like to invite you into our world to show you what we have on offer for riders and equines of all ages and abilities.
Our friendly staff are happy to teach children and adults from the complete novice through to competition standard. Our unrivalled hacking is simply superb: virtually unlimited off-road riding through forests, heathland, estate farmland, and beaches (tides permitting). In fact many of our regular riders come and spend time with us, even if they're not getting on a horse!
For those of you with your own equine companion, we offer first-class part, full or working livery services. Horses are allowed to be how nature intended here at Poplar Park, enjoying all year turnout in carefully tended paddocks. We have six staff members living on site, so there is always someone close by should you ever need assistance. Ryder Davies are our local vets and we have 3 farriers that visit the yard regularly, we also have our own resident Equine Physiotherapist, Sophie Allen, onsite.
With an indoor arena, a spacious outdoor floodlit all-weather menage, a woodchip showjumping paddock, a gridwork school, a dedicated lungeing area and undoubtedly the best cross country course in the area, we really do have something for everyone. However, top of the priority list here at Poplar has to be our faithful, loyal and sometimes cheeky ponies that make this job so rewarding: we firmly believe in ensuring that we have the happiest horses around whilst running and maintaining an inviting yet professional yard.
