Facility Hire

Please note that as owners of the Quainton Stud, we will not accept any responsibility for any injury loss or damage caused to horses or riders if they attend to use the facilities at the farm. We are aware that the facilities have not been properly maintained to our previous high standards and we dissociate ourselves entirely from the tenants advertising or holding of competitions and shows at the premises.

Quainton Stud’s show facilities are designed, built and maintained to the highest standards with particular care and attention to the ground, surfaces and cleanliness.
