All Weather Gallop at Mowbray

A new All Weather Gallop was constructed for my wife, Ruth Carr here at Mowbray Farm, Stillington.

It is the first in the North to be constructed of Trojan fibre, which is made from chopped up carpet.  
The preparations included intensive drainage,  branch clearance and bridge building. Membrane was put underneath the stone, and a further membrane laid before the all-weather surface was finally added.
The result is a consistent surface to work the horses on - in all weathers, and a 7f gallop which should last with little upkeep for many years.

We have been working for York Racecourse since 2009 generally in racing's closed season. The various and ongoing projects have included refubishment of the prestigious lawns and parade ring and pre parade rings, drainage and irrigation work, path and walk ways, and the race track crossings.

In 2015 we began draining and clearing lakes in the woods in preparation for building engineers to reconstruct a dam.


In 2014 we laid a woodchip walk way to the turnout paddocks for Ruth's horses.


Everyday some 20 horses use this walk way for turnout and to the gallops. It  was previously a muddy track in the

Winter months.
