Our Kirkey Hall Campus, near Ponteland, will see the construction of a bespoke equine centre including a new 38 x 48 metre square indoor arena with viewing gallery (subject to planning permission), a new education hub to accommodate the delivery of equine management skills such as farriery, dentistry and physiotherapy, plus renovations to existing equine facilities.
The improvements will enable the college to become a centre of excellence for equine education and the facilities will be available for hire to local riding clubs and support local horse owners in the management of their own animals.
