Foaling Season
mid-August to mid-November

One of the few places in the world where guests may have the opportunity to see a foaling!

There are no guarantees, but many of our guests have been fortunate to witness a mare give birth. Mares tend to foal between midnight and 5am. Guests are welcome to leave a mobile number for a wakeup call. Have your jacket & boots ready as it can happen within 10 minutes!

Please whisper so as not to distract the mare.

The ‘maternity’ paddock and foaling units are conveniently situated adjacent to the Barry House on Riverton garden.

No need to designate a driver for your large group to go wine tasting!
