Henry de Bromhead is an Irish horse trainer who specialises in training horses for National Hunt racing. He has trained a number of Group 1 winners including Sizing John and Honeysuckle, and is based at stables in Knockeen, County Waterford. We have three main gallops here at Knockeen - a six furlong uphill wood chip gallop, a three furlong sand gallop and a four furlong uphill grass gallop.  Jumping is the name of the game and our indoor school arena is a major part of our schooling process. We loose school our horses in the arena every morning, with a hurdle and an easyfix fence on either side, the objective being to get them to think for themselves, see their own strides and gain confidence in their own jumping ability. Our outdoor schooling area consists of four lines of hurdles and fences. We use the schooling ground in final preparation before races.
