Dan Skelton Racing

Dan Skelton chooses Andrews Bowen

"Since the start of my training career all my horses have been exercised on an Andrews Bowen surface. It is second to none and I am extremely happy with the results I have seen" Dan Skelton


Andrews Bowen were proud to install Dan's state of the art EquaFlow gallop at Lodge Hill. This pioneering new technology was used when we provided the stunning equestrian facilities at Greenwich for the London 2012 Olympic Games. It provides a completely consistent surface across the whole width of the gallop, whatever the weather, and ensures the optimum conditions for the horses to reach their peak fitness.

The gallop is laid out with a 2-furlong loop at the bottom, and has a three-horse width along the straights to accommodate the schooling fences. From the loop extends a curving uphill gallop, which is a five-furlong stretch and has a rise of 45m over the length of the gallop; the overall length of the gallop including the loop is seven furlongs. Situated at the top of the gallop is a small loop around which the horses can quietly pull up to a trot after completing their climb up the hill. The smaller trotting loop enables the horses to gradually cool down on completion of their morning exercise before heading back to the yard.

You can view a video of the building of the gallop below....
