Poplar Park Equestrian Centre

Situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Poplar Park is any equestrian enthusiast’s dream location. On the next few pages we would like to invite you into our world to show you what we have on offer for riders and equines of all ages and abilities.

Our friendly staff are happy to teach children and adults from the complete novice through to competition standard. Our unrivalled hacking is simply superb: virtually unlimited off-road riding through forests, heathland, estate farmland, and beaches (tides permitting). In fact many of our regular riders come and spend time with us, even if they’re not getting on a horse!

For those of you with your own equine companion, we offer first-class part, full or working livery services. Horses are allowed to be how nature intended here at Poplar Park, enjoying all year turnout in carefully tended paddocks. We have six staff members living on site, so there is always someone close by should you ever need assistance.
With an indoor arena, a spacious outdoor floodlit all-weather menage, a woodchip showjumping paddock, a gridwork school, a dedicated lungeing area and undoubtedly the best cross country course in the area, we really do have something for everyone. However, top of the priority list here at Poplar has to be our faithful, loyal and sometimes cheeky ponies that make this job so rewarding: we firmly believe in ensuring that we have the happiest horses around whilst running and maintaining an inviting yet professional yard.

ANVIL PARK STUD

Our aim, as owners, is to be professional and have good rapport with our competitors and their families. We hope to be a fun, friendly equestrian centre that caters for tiny tots right the way through to the more serious competitors. We will achieve this by being versatile and having a wide range of equestrian events, including show jumping and dressage, to suit all capabilities. We have indoor and outdoor arenas, including a brand new 70×70 outdoor arena with a brand new surface, suitable for both show jumping and dressage.

We are a professional, family run equestrian business with indoor and outdoor arenas suitable for both show jumping and dressage. Based in the heart of Larling, Norfolk, just off the A11 on the border with Suffolk, we are surrounded by beautiful countryside. Thetford Forest is only a short distance away, making Anvil Park the perfect location for a day out show jumping in Norfolk.

We have many exciting plans for Anvil Park Stud, some of which have already come to fruition. We have installed a brand new 70×70 outdoor arena with a brand new surface, we have redone the entrance to the venue to avoid narrow bridges, and we have an onsite café that is open when our shows are on, serving home cooked food that is sourced from the local farmers and butchers. We also have plans to extend the car parking and resurface the outdoor warm up arena.
