The open day is a unique opportunity to see the horses in the training establishments throughout the Lambourn Valley. More than 30 trainers will open they yards to the public and over 10,000 people are expected to take the opportunity to meet the horses, the trainers and to really see first hand the Lambourn racing industry. Many yards have special exhibits and some demonstrations including horses using hydrotherapy pools.
In the afternoon the massive events field with its central arena opens with a full programme of equine and country related shows and demonstrations of country skills. Trade stands offer all manner of goods and services generally connected to country pursuits. Children's activities are also available and there are many different places where food is available.
We are most grateful to Betfair for their continued sponsorship
