Terms & Conditions


Our aim is to be open most days of the year but there are occasions when the weather does not permit this, to find out if we’re open or not: before 9am: Please call the office on 07557 106679


We cannot guarantee you will have the gallops to yourself and each rider is asked to please be respectful of each other’s needs. Clients that wish to canter must not get in the way of clients that wish to gallop and must either choose to follow the speedier horses up the gallop or wait until those galloping have finished their work. 


We harrow the gallops as and when required and will be carried out at Derbyshire Gallops' discretion.


No dogs are to be taken down to the gallop unless they are accompanied by someone not riding and they MUST be on a lead. 


Impolite behaviour will not be tolerated and poor conduct may result in a client being advised to find an alternative facility to use.
