The Houghall Equine Centre is a stunning facility that opened in 2016 following a £2.5m investment. It boasts a 28-stable block accommodation, training workshops, tack room, common room area (with vending machines offering hot and cold drinks and snacks), horse-walker, and a fantastic 40m x 40m indoor arena with Martin Collins Active-Track waxed surface and viewing gallery.
In addition, there is a 60m x 40m all-weather menage with a sand and rubber surface that also underwent a full renovation. The centre also provides a full set of show jumps and off-road hacking within the college grounds.
Our equine centre is the perfect place to pursue a career in the equine industry or as an equine event facility. The centre has been approved by The British Horse Society and awarded a 5-star rated council license by Durham County Council.
Our equine training facilities, stables, indoor arena and menage are all available for hire.
