The club is one of the few organisations of its kind to have its own permanent showground at Western Avenue, Coul East, Glenrothes, Fife, Scotland, where members have the use of some 8.5 acres of grass together with two all-weather arenas, a sand schooling area and a large "Springturf" ring.|
Members also enjoy the exclusive use of a permanent cross country course at Craigie Farm, by Leuchars, courtesy of Club President, John Foster.
