Aylesford Equine is a family run business; it is the home of Peter, Sue and Louise Walker.   Situated in the heart of the Quorn Hunting countryside, its set amongst 160 acres of beautiful undulating hills.

In 2000 we created a 4 mile X-Country schooling course diversifying from Dairy farming. From then we have expanded to a 3 course course with over 100+ fences. 

Along with expanding the course over the years we built an All Weather Arena with B.S.J.A show jumps, which is available for hire to individuals, groups and pony/ riding clubs. 

2008 saw the sale of the family Dairy farm from there we concentrated on building further the Equine business. We built a small Competition Livery Yard, where we offer full and part liveries.
