Three Maids Chasers is a family-run equestrian facility just outside Winchester. There has been a cross-country course at Down Farm for many years, and some may remember it as Course no.5 of UK Chasers.
In 2007/8 we completed a major programme of improvements. The idea was to transform a tired cross-country course into a venue designed with the enthusiastic amateur in mind. In addition to improving and upgrading the jumps on the hunter trial course, we built a number of new permanent obstacles, several movable jumps and created the schooling field, showjumping area and dressage area.
Around the same time we converted an old farm workshop into a dining room with a commercial kitchen. We also aquired a number of static caravans and temporary stables, completing the transformation into a perfect venue for residential riding camps. Three Maids Chasers now operates an an independent equestrian business.
We offer our facility to riding clubs, pony clubs, instructors and individuals looking to give both horse and rider a bit of excercise. We also organise our own adult riding camps and other events throughout the year. Keep an eye on the 'Events' page for details of what's coming up.
We have more than 20 years experience of running a cross country course, organising events and competitions and have 5 years of hosting Pony Club Camps under our belts. We also have first hand knowledge of the Pony Club system, both as participants and as parents, helping us to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Owing to hard work, careful management and favourable geology, we are open year-round. Our rates are extremely reasonable and we offer a friendly and helpful service.
