A former racing yard, Woodruffe boasts 35 high-quality stables in a courtyard setting. The boxes are spacious, well-ventilated and have automatic drinkers.
Woodruffe is blessed with superb hacking country on the doorstep, with very little roadwork. Epsom Downs are five minutes away, offering the opportunity to canter over wide open country and the all-weather gallops - beneath the famous grandstand!
A little further away, there is National Trust land at Headley Heath and Mickleham Common. Pub rides are very popular in the summer months, and Woodruffe staff are always available to accompany the less confident rider.
