The equestrian facilities, finished to an impeccably high standard to suit a wide variety of equestrian disciplines are designed with usability in mind whilst keeping a luxury feel throughout.

Jenkey Farm is a unique offering for both private use and as an equestrian centre.
Main Yard and indoor arena
The impressive internal stables comprise 7 Monarch stables with swan neck dividers, automatic water drinkers, drainage, and rubber matting throughout. A pristine fully fitted tack room with hot water and lounge area, feed room, plant room and separate laundry/rug room, all fitted with downlights and insulated roofs. There are two large internal wash bays with hot water and over arm hoses and a good-sized Ascot solarium. The feed room has been cleverly designed with double doors to the rear for easy access to the hay barn and for deliveries.
The internal stables lead through to the spectacular 48m x 23m indoor arena fitted with composite kickboards, attractive chrome lettering and wall to wall mirrors. The Equivia grade II wax surface means there is no requirement for a sprinkler system. On the far side is an electronic Galebreaker for all year use, providing protection from rain and wind whilst retaining ventilation. The generous gallery area is striking with a fitted kitchen and large island, great attention to detail has been put into the seamless design with the work surface running the entire length of the gallery and provides plenty of space for spectating and storage.
Outdoor arena, lunge pen and horse walker
Outside is a Mark Scott 60m x 30m outdoor arena with a sand and fibre surface, impeccable drainage and space to extend, a Monarch 5 horse walker with automated rotation. The property also features a Monarch lunge pen with Equivia Grade I surface and a fully drained Stallion or rehabilitation pen with surface and reinforced stallion gate.

Significantly the yards could be run independently of each other.
