Eglinton has four separate courses reviewed annually so each course is of a true standard for the grade of the horses competing. The courses are designed to encourage the forward going horse and to create confidence. The terrain is undulating and there are some steep slopes. The course is on old grasslands providing good going.

The Intermediate track follows a route, planned with help and guidance from Ian Stark in 2015, as yet unridden it has bedded in well incorporating ground not previously used for the Horse Trials and makes good use of natural features. Fences will be a mixture of permanent and portable obstacles, making use of hedges and including the water complex.  The estate has undertaken considerable ground and drainage work over the winter, which should impact positively on the ground on all courses.


Hot and cold food available throughout the event. Accommodation list is available from the Assistant Secretary (as above)- please send SAE or email
