The horses are housed in a spacious eighteen box American style barn. The barn allows the air in when necessary in the summer months as well as providing warmth in the harsher Winter months.




 Philip Hide racing has access to extensive training facilities. There is an all weather gallop which stretches to just shy of one mile. Going up an incline the all weather gallop is enormously beneficial and is used on a regular basis. It is very useful in improving and maintaining fitness. There are also four grass gallops to choose from, perfect for working horses on and freshening them up. The gallops are set in acres of Downland, meaning there is plenty of different routes the horses can take each morning ensuring the horses do not become soured by repetitive routine. The schooling facilities are excellent and a steep grass canter ensures that the jump horses can gain the high level of fitness that they require.
