Yard Details      

Kim Bailey moved to his Thorndale Farm yard in 2006. Set in 1,000 acres of grazing farmland the facilities have been designed with both horses and the staff's comfort and happiness in mind. Most yards are a fraction of this size and scope.

Kim houses about 70-100 horses in training at any one time and has a full range of facilities, including walkers, exercise paddocks and lunging pens as well as turf and All-Weather gallops.

He maintains a very highy quality website, with a daily blog which reports on a wide range of events happening at the yard each day.  It is difficult to organise visits to a yard like this during the season itself, as Kim can often have half a dozen runners a day, but the Spring offers a good opportunity to visit, once the jumps season has started to wind down.
