Meadow Lane Equestrian was originally started in the nearby village of Little Downham and was known as Little Downham Equestrian. We quickly expanded until we outgrew our yard and relocated to our current 70 acre site at New Farm, Earith in 2012. Watch this space for all the exciting improvements and events we have planned for New Farm.
We are conveniently located with good road access and are situated close to Cambridge, Huntingdon and Ely. We are a short drive from some of the county's premier competition and schooling venues.
