Course: Garthorpe

Location: near Melton Mowbray. Leicestershire

A serious, well organised course with permanent buildings whose boards creak with a history that temporary marquees can never recapture.
Run right handed on a hillside the stiff fences here take no prisoners.

Bookmakers, trade stands and cheese stalls all do a roaring trade when the weather is fine.

The parade ring with changing rooms and offices in background.

The winners enclosure.
