As a training centre, we have a 2.5 furlong circular track with a 2.0 furlong straight. This gallop is available to hire by the hour. We also offer horse breaking services, pre-training, race horse training, national hunt and point to point training. We have a selection of stables to hire as well as bloodstock sales.

Located close to Belfast International  airport and Larne port, Philip McBurney Racing is conveniently positioned for those travelling from the British Isles and more afar.

Training Principles
Our Philosophy.

Our team believes that a successful training program is one that accounts for the best interest of the horse, strives to achieve the goals of the owners, and is based on core principles of sound horsemanship, but always in pursuit of knowledge to stay progressive in its approach.

“We’re never the same from year to year. Every year we grow in our approach, through what we’ve learned from the horses and through a constant evaluation of our own techniques. Every year we rebuild the program to make it better for the horse. We have a commitment to excellence that stems from our commitment to the horses we train and to their owners.”
