The American-style enclosed equestrian barn at 11.5 metres x 38.6 metres, has stunning hardwood walls, concrete floors and a rustic appearance and blends in beautifully with the surrounding environment. The barn is comprised of 18 loose boxes and 4 pony boxes.
The smaller equestrian arena at 26 x 43 metres and the larger international size arena at 30 x 60 metres both use advanced riding surfaces for improved performance. The equestrian team at Mount Juliet uses the highest-grade cushion track premier surface, similar to that used in the international warm-up arena at the Royal Dublin Horse Show & Kill Equestrian Centre, both of which are international competition arenas. All these ingredients create a quality footing wholly sympathetic with the horse, maximising the experience for both horse and rider.
The show-jumps aim to cater for all levels from novice to advanced horse and rider, from schooling fences to competition courses. Training sessions can be made more interesting for rider and horse with bright new colourful jumps and courses.
