About Our Zone Day Maps
We run a ‘zone’ visit scheme enabling reduced price visits on certain days in certain areas. The zone visit fee is split between the number of horses seen at any one location, even with multiple owners.
If there are 5 or more horses to see at the one location the zone visit fee is waived altogether.
