  • Does my horse need to be vaccinated to visit?
    A horse will not be permitted to compete or train unless it has a current vaccination against equine influenza that complies with the following conditions. An initial course of two injections for a primary vaccination, not less than 21 days and not more than 92 days apart, are required before being eligible to compete. A first booster injection must be given between 150 – 215 days after the second injection of the primary vaccination. Subsequent booster injections must be given at regular intervals of no more than 12 months, commencing after the first booster injection. A full course or booster injection must have been administered at least 7 days before arriving at the competition. The vaccination record (s) in the horse’s passport, must be completed, signed and stamped line by line, by an appropriate veterinary surgeon who is neither the owner nor the rider of the horse. In the interests of equine welfare and to maintain optimum protection levels for your horse, it is strongly recommended that the most recent booster injection is given within six months + 21 days prior to the horse competing. The responsibility to comply with this rule lies with the competitor, who should consult with their veterinarian. WE DO CHECK PROOF OF VACCINATION FOR ALL ATTENDING HORSES OCTOBER - MAY, AND RANDOM CHECKS APRIL - SEPTEMBER. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU BRING THIS. Photos clearly showing the correct vaccinations for the horse or vet invoice is also accepted. Horses being found without adequate and up to date vaccinations will not be allowed to compete and will not be allowed to compete until such a time that they have been given their first and second vaccinations.
  • Do you have HGV access?
    Access is pretty good so long as you use Laith Staid Lane. For longer HGV'S. Our Gate 1 entrance is usually a little easier. It is the Silver Gate, immediately on the left after the railway bridge. You will find a link for directions, straight to the gate below for apple users. We regularly have artics using Laith Staid Lane and 18tonne + boxes at the Centre. We have decent sized hardstanding and floodlit parking area. Please Note - access off the B1222 via the farm track signed Huddleston Grange, is one of our driveways, but is not suitable for access to the parking area. We advise that you don't use this route.
  • Are there low bridges near YEC?
    The closest bridges to us are Coldhill Lane (from Aberford direction) height 13'3ft/4m. The bridge on the B1222 next to Squires Cafe is 16'9ft. And the bridge next to us on Laith Staid Lane is officially unmarked. However high sided artics use the lane weekly.
  • Are dogs allowed?
    Dogs are welcome to attend the events, but they must remain on a lead at all times, be familiar with horses and well behaved.
  • What is the Smoking Policy?
    Smoking is only permitted in one designated area whilst on site. This area is located on the route between the parking area and the arenas. You will see a metal smoking bin at the smoking area. Please ensure that you dispose of your cigarette ends in this bin. We have an a wide variety of wildlife thriving at the centre and we want to minimise the risk of them picking up any ends.
  • Do you have disability access?

Please understand that due to the geographical nature of our centre, limited walking ability can be an issue. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the terrain and other safety considerations, we are not able to provide easy access to wheelchairs or other access aids. However, whenever possible we will do our best to ensure that we can offer access our centre, regardless of their disability. Although vehicle access is possible on the main event area, this is not always available due to the horses using this area.

  • I haven't done Barrels before, what classes should I do?
    Classes Explained STEADIE EDDIES For the young and old who prefer a more 'Rolls Royce' slower paced run, novice riders and horses, lead rein allowed. Those unsure of how quick their horse or pony goes can enter the Steady-Eddies, however, if they are deemed too quick for the class they will be asked to compete in the open classes going forward. Judged as one section. If you wouldn't normally 'go for it' in a showjumping jump off, this is a good class to start with. The Slo-Go Run Rules Two runs, the average slowest time wins! Must be ridden in trot. Knocking a barrel or breaking gait deducts 5 seconds from your time. If you stay in any other gait -100sec will be deducted from the run time. Basically Barrel Racing rules reversed! Pony Class Open to ALL ponies 148cm and under. Rider any age. Horse Class Open to ALL horses over 148cm. Rider any age. Open Unrestricted Judged as one section, regardless of whether a horse or pony or a senior and junior. Senior/Junior Open Place as Senior or Juniors regardless of number of entries and whether you are riding a hoarser a pony. Treat Class Random variety prizes are placed on the Barrels. Riders have to run under the set time to be allowed to keep their prizes. Exceeding the run time, lose the prizes! Knocking over a barrel: you forfeit any prizes on that barrel. Any prizes dropped are forfeited. If you complete a non run, all prizes collected are forfeited. A great test for all! Pairs Class A rides the first run. Rider B the second run. Both times added together for the average time + any penalties. Quickest pair wins Pairs can be mixed juniors/seniors on horses/ponies.
  • What do you have to do?
    The ultimate goal of a successful barrel racing run is to negotiate the cloverleaf pattern in the fastest time without knocking over any barrels. We have practice classes, one at the start of the event and the second one halfway through. We have competitive classes for steadier horses and one where everyone has to trot. There’s classes for horses, ponies, seniors and juniors and combined ones. ➖ Each rider completes TWO runs per class. You get 45sec after the bell to start the first run. Then you must wait for the bell before you start your second run. We work out your average time over the runs + any penalty seconds. ➖ You can choose to ride the left pattern or the right or one of each. ➖ If you run a ‘Non-Run’. It means that you didn’t ride a complete circle around each barrel. The pattern has to be a clover pattern. +100secs will be added to the run time. Knocking down a barrel adds 5 seconds to the time.
  • What is a Run Pattern?

  • What sort of vibe is the yard?
    We have a varied range of liveries. But despite being a competition venue, we are a smaller livery yard, keeping up to just 10 liveries at a time. People wise, we have people whose interests are competing and training, owners who prefer to ride as and when, along with a few retirees. We are really careful when selecting liveries that a newbie will be happy here. No one is judged, only supported here. We want you to feel that YEC is a second home. Gem, our Yard Owner, loves having her home as the centre and aims to share how much of a lovely, quiet, and natural setting the actually yard is.
