Welcome to Chilham Park

Set in the grounds of Chilham Castle, home of the Wheeler family near Canterbury, Kent, Chilham Park has been established as a top cross country venue since 2004.

Shortlisted as a training ground for the London Olympics, the Park offers fences ranging from 2’6” up to and including a complete British Eventing Novice course designed by Scott Brickell. Chilham cross country course is set in 18th century parkland, but our goal is professional 21st century equestrian events.

The course is available throughout the year for hire and is ideal for the competitive rider or for the leisure rider enjoying 300 acres of beautiful scenery. Local trainers often use Chilham Park as a training ground for their students – please look to the course guide for more information.


Throughout the summer we run a series of events including our premier event in August, the Chilham Castle International Horse Trials. In April 2013, Chilham added a second British Eventing affiliated Horse Trials.

Our successful unaffiliated events have been running for seven years and provide local riders with a professional venue for eventing, combined training and hunter trials.

Chilham Park have organised a series of Day Workshops with Olympians Lucinda Green, William Fox Pitt and Jane Holderness-Roddam which successfully combine the luxury of two group sessions plus lunch and a swim at the Castle. Mary King has run her well-established Petplan 'XC The Safe Way' clilnic at Chilham.

The cross country course was chosen by the British Riding Club to run an Area Novice and Intermediate Horse Trials Qualifier. The East Kent Hunt Pony Club have held their One Day Events and Triathlon Chilham.  Riding and Pony Clubs are very welcome at Chilham Park to use either the cross country course or the school; discounts are available for larger group bookings, please call us for details.


Our Livery Yard offers both full livery and short term schooling.

Ali Ferry BHS II(SM) runs Chilham Park and teaches a wide range of pupils from beginners up to affiliated level. Flat and jumping lessons are available both in the school and over the cross-country course. You are welcome to visit with your own instructor; please let us know.
