COURSE DESCRIPTION

Poplar Park courses are run over undulating grassland and semi heath, and the light sandy soil gives fantastic going in all weathers. All courses comprise solidly built, inviting fences making good use of the natural terrain and each course has two natural water obstacles.  Further groundwork improvements have been carried out to ensure the best possible going for 2017 as well as alterations to all courses.  Both the showjumping and dressage arenas are on good free draining grassland. To view examples of fences on the course visit website: www.poplarparkevent.co.uk
