Lyneham Heath update re COVID 19


we are open for hacking only

Like the Government we are being cautious.

Instead of booking for your hack, you need to make a donation to Glorious Cotswold Grasslands (click here). Once you've clicked on this link, scroll down to the donate button, choose your sum to donate (no matter how small), then be sure to choose the option for GLORIOUS COTSWOLD GRASSLANDS. There are no booking times, simply come during daylight hours.

Come and enjoy some exercise, but keep to govt guidelines. In addition, please keep within our boundaries unless you are hacking on the bridlepath, no jumping, but you can splash through the waters, saunter round the loop or explore any of the wiggly mown paths (beware some may be rough). Be sensible about fresh horses, park well apart and no groups of more than 6. Dogs are welcome but kept on leads at all times as we have many breeding hares, deer & even some wild partridge none of which are intended for the pot. The Hut & Washdown (communal touching of taps + hoses not advised) are off limits. Keep the loo for emergencies only.

Owen Moore has just resumed teaching private lessons on the arena. If you'd like to book please email Laura Browne on l.browne@hotmail.co.uk

We are using the horses and a new flock of sheep for conservation grazing around the perimeter of the farm. Moving them from area to area in a timely manner we are hoping to create species-rich grasslands and wildflower meadows for our friends the pollinators.



  • ONLY the XC will be available to book (limited numbers). Some areas will be restricted. The Baby Field is closed.
  • Please adhere to your start times
  • Ensure you leave at least 10m between vehicles. There's extra room to park on the grass so please spread out.
  • People to keep 2m apart minimum at all times
  • Do not use the Hut or the wash down bay (sharing taps not advised) - please bring water for horses to drink & wash off, sponges, buckets etc
  • The Loo is open for anyone DESPERATE, but we advise you try to avoid using.There is disinfectant spray to use before and after, on anything you touch! As the entrance is narrow, stand well back to ensure you don’t pass too closely
  • The government is advising we limit contact with other people. Please therefore adhere to government guidelines for households to meet with no more than 6 other people
  • Bring your own poop-a-scoop to clear up after your horse in the lorry park.
  • Please be sensible about the height and type of fence you are attempting and try to avoid bringing overly fresh horses or ponies to minimise the risk of an accident. It’s recommended all riders beneath BE Novice standard come with a qualified instructor or VERY competent equestrian supervisor.
  • All adult riders to be accompanied by a responsible person
  • Children are very welcome to ride but must be accompanied by a qualified instructor or VERY competent equestrian supervisor.
  • Back protectors to be worn

Please note from May 2020 refunds for cancellations will be replaced with a credit in your account which can be used against any facility for up to 6 months
