Richmond's XC courses were refreshed for the 2016 season by our Course Designer, Jamie Innes and course builder, Moray Nicholson.  The water complex built in 2016 was a success so the addition of a new bank complex will add further variety to the Novice and Intermediate courses for 2017.  The Intermediate course is bold and challenging and, with alternatives where required, is inviting and suitable for first timers.  All the courses are progressive, and designed to educate and encourage both horse and rider.  

The show jumping is fully up to height.  It runs on an all weather surface.  The warm up facilities are very good with both indoor and outdoor warm up arenas.
