Wales and West is simply the best venue in the UK - the hours of work that go in to that fantastic place must be huge!!! I've never had a bad word, the most accommodating equestrian venue in the world ;)

We regularly compete here and everything from the pleasant and helpful office staff to the rings and stabling is managed and run well. My parents loved being able to sit in the balcony area to watch and I am sure that visitors to the Chepstow area of Wales would enjoy a few hours here. The cafes are good and the... More

An excellent facility for equestrian interests with numerous rings surrounding a main ring offering everything required to host a major British Championships.

So disappointed with the money grabbing approach of this centre. We booked stables via the web at£50 only to be told when we got there that the price was now £60 as there was do much admin to be done. We refused to pay this extra amount and told we would have to speak with James Broome who from previous... More

I personally was very disappointment when I waited until 815pm on Saturday 23rd June to jump my class and they announced that if you got 4 faults you will have to leave the ring because of there wasn't enough day light. People before me got to jump the whole course. The class was drawn order so I had not other... More

As you drive up the road from caldicot toward portskewett turn left and follow the road until you cant miss the farm on the left. it is a very big place and seems to get bigger everytime I visit. I never cease to marvel at the sight of some of these animals exercising, especially some of the top show jumpers... More

This is always an event my clients enjoy. The horses are settled, the social side is very well organised, photographer is great. Only thing I dislike is that if you are running in more than one class, due to the number of rings your classes are sometimes running at the same time. Other than that, a real enjoyable day out!...

Well organised venue and very freindly staff, Vicky is particularly helpful in the office. Great competitions and events make this probably the best venue of its kind in the country.
