The stables are situated within minutes of the Kingston Gate of Richmond Park where we take our riders for daily hacks. It is the perfect tranquil setting for hacking amongst the deer and wildlife.

The Park extends over some 2,360 acres and is a heritage landscape of National importance. It was enclosed as a Hunting Park by Charles I, who rode in the chase and it still retains many ingredients of a deer park.

It was notified by English Nature as a site of special interest in 1992 and a National Nature Reserve.

Queen Victoria herself rode in the park and recorded in her journal one “heavenly day” when she rode with her household and her ministers from Buckingham Palace to Wandsworth, Wimbledon Common and on the Park, which she rode before returning to the Palace. A distance of 22 miles.
