Please read carefully
Firstly the Kelt Capital H.O.Y
stabling administration greatly appreciated the amazing
co-operation from the competitors in 2007, and we are
looking forward to seeing you all again in 2008.
Due to the number of horses needing accommodation on
the grounds it can be difficult to cater for everyones
stabling. There are approximately 750 yards and boxes
located on the show grounds. The KELT CAPITAL H.O.Y.S
gets bigger every year and due to the limited number
of covered yards and stables at the show grounds it
is really helpful for us to know that you, have a second
preference. If you do urgently require a stable please
do consider putting down the Hastings racecourse stables
as a second choice. These are very good facilities.
There is truck parking and camping available. Please
help us to ensure we can accommodate everyones
requests by marking a first and second choice on the

road end) on the south side of Hastings. It would be

There are both stables and yards available at these
facilities, the stables a very large and are suitable
to house stallions, very large hacks, as well as mares

a truck parking/camping area, and there are toilet facilities.
However, there is not enough room to school horses.
There is no charge for camping at the racecourse.
The Flaxmere Equestrian Park:
Located south of Hastings at the end of Equestrian
