Posted on 03rd September 2014
David Dennis Racing, Tyre Hill Stables, Hanley Swan is hosting an open day for the general public on Sunday 14th September from 10am – 3pm.
The open day will give the local residents the chance to go beyond the gates and take a tour of the stables and the 140 acre estate which has recently undergone a large-scale refurbishment.
The Stables are occupied by trainer and former jump jockey David Dennis and his wife Kate. With a 10 year career as a professional jump jockey which yielded over 240 winners, David, along with his experienced team, has a wealth of racing industry knowledge. They currently train 30 horses using a wide range of facilities, including two purpose built all weather gallops, equine pool, solarium, indoor school and horse walker, all of which are on site.
At the open day there will be a bouncy castle for children and tractor and trailer rides which will tour the gallops as well as a horse parade and hog roast and a bar. All the facilities will be open to view, from the gallops to the horse solarium and swimming pool.
Tyre Hill Stables is based in the picturesque village of Hanley Swan, enjoying a secluded rural location; the estate features many acres of rolling green hills and fields making it the perfect location for a horse racing stables. It is also within easy reach of Worcester, Cheltenham, Stratford and Hereford racecourses.
Trainer, David Dennis says: “We moved here about 12 months ago and feel it’s the right time to let people know what we have been up to as we’ve been so busy with the yard renovations, hiring staff and horse-training we haven’t really had the chance to speak to anyone beyond the gates.”
“We really hope local people will come along to the open day, spread the word and show support of our enterprise. We have put in a lot of blood sweat and tears, but we are finally happy with the environment we have managed to achieve. We are hoping to expand our stables even further in the near future, creating more local jobs. As well as local people we are also inviting friends and contacts from the international world of horse-racing. I grew up within a racing family and it is a big moment for me to be able to open my own yard, which I want to share with as many people as possible.
I am extremely passionate about horse racing and want to put my jockey and pre-training experience to ensuring that all the horses here receive the very best care and expertise from myself and our staff.”
