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.

THE STABLE

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. :)

FINAL WORDS

It was a pleasant visit to AHCC and I learnt the following;

  1. Regular horses can cost anything from N1M - 2M

  2. When a horse is rescued, you have to quarantine it for some months before allowing it mix with the other horses

  3. Maintenance of a horse can cost almost N1M per annum depending on the stable

  4. The horses must be closely watched by trained stable personnel

  5. Vets must be available

  6. Don't dress like me.....please wear shorts or trousers.

Have you ever heard of Abuja Horse and Country Club (AHCC) before? Will you ever consider owing a horse? 

Thanks for reading and commenting. Till next my next adventure, be kind to one another.
