Abuja Horse and Country Club | Abuja city tour (3/6)
Abuja Horse & Country Club (AHCC) is a Horse Club owned by Julius Berger Nigeria. This was my first time of hearing about the place and it was an extremely engaging and pleasant visit.
We met the manager of the club and she was delighted to show us around the facility. She said the horses are of paramount importance. The facility caters to the well being of the horses including their health, safety and performance. If I remember clearly, I think the horse stable houses about 15 horses.
THE CLUB HOUSE
There is a nice club house at the country club. It was relatively clean and air-conditioned. The rest room is located at the back and it is under lock and key. It was not too clean but usable. :)
