Barton Equestrian Centre is situated just North of Preston in the lovely village of Bilsborrow and was acquired by the Martin family in April 2001.
Gail, Neil and Jane have many years of experience in the equestrian field, Gail has been involved with horses for most of her life, Neil competed at international level on many occasions and Jane has also competed on the national circuit, so together they have a vast amount of knowledge to offer.
Over the past few years the family has greatly improved the facilities at Barton, and continues to do so.
The centre has two large and three smaller outdoor arenas, all post and rail fenced and an adjacent horse box park. One of the larger arenas has a Derby Bank and Dyke, and very successful Derby Shows have been enjoyed by many of the riders who had never been around such a course before.
Indoors the Centre provides two arenas, the larger one is overlooked by a cafeteria and eating area, with a seating gallery that enables visitors to relax and enjoy the events taking place in the arena. There are also plenty of parking facilities, together with another 20 acres of land.
The centre hosts Unaffiliated Showjumping every Wednesday Night, BSPS and Ponies
UK Shows, BSJA Shows, Riding Club and Dressage Competitions and has provided the
location for the Elite Show; British Show Hack & Cob Shows; Robert Oliver Clinics;
Many of the visitors to Barton remark on the warm and friendly atmosphere, even in the middle of winter!
The Martin family aims to provide events for all walks of the Equestrian field.
