Neardown, the training establishment of Oliver Sherwood and his team is ideally equipped with top class facilities.


Lambourn Downs

Lambourn Downs, an area steeped in history with close links between horse and man through the ages.

Ever since man carved the image of this beautiful and elegant creature in the Down's chalk it easy to see why the beauty and open spaces of this area would provide a natural draw to horse and man. Literally, a stone throws from the Lambourn Downs, Neardown has some of the most outstanding gallops in the country adjacent to the yard.


The stables were purpose built by Charlie Mann in 2012. They provide a five star "horse hotel" with access to all of The Jockey Club's facilities at the Lambourn Gallops.


Surrounded by elements of nature at their best, mature ornamental trees, manicured lawns and little intrusion from the hustle and bustle of 21st man, it is plain to see the calming influence that this environment has on the horses stabled here.

The Team

One of the most important elements of a training establishment are it's people. Oliver is proud that Neardown has a record of loyalty and dedication from the people that work there.

This dedication and consistency ensures smooth planning of campaigns for National Hunt's top prizes.
