Horses don’t like steps either and so most of the racing yards are on level ground with tarmac or concrete walkways. The horses are generally in their stables and will often have their head out of the door, for a wheelchair user it may be difficult to view the horses who are tucked away in a far corner of the stable. However, the stables are all attended and we encourage you to ask for assistance from one of the stable lads. When you arrive at the stable please indicate that you are disabled or have a disabled passenger. Wherever safely possible you will be allowed to park close to the buildings and drop a disabled passenger.
The afternoon entertainment is on a grass field which may prove challenging to wheelchair users without attendants. Parking for vehicles with disabled drivers and passengers is directly next to the field.
Special toilets for disabled visitors have been hired and are available at key locations. Please ask any of the marshals. They are also marked in the Open Day programme
If you have any questions concerning facilities or access for disabled visitors then please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
