The flowing Cross Country courses run over permanent undulating grassland around the old Somerford Park Estate, and are designed in a traditional style to encourage bold riding, including two water complexes with man-made take-offs and landings; every effort is made to ensure good going with all courses dressed to create a championship feel. Dressage located on level ground within the permanent 80-acre showground. CIC1*/2* Dressage will be on a surfaced arena to ensure good going for all.
