Stafford's course is a well-built introduction to British Eventing, designed by Janet Plant and built by James Plant. Stafford's course has consistently received high praise from riders for its going and high quality obstacles, a large number of new fences have been built and new drainage has been laid on the approach to the water complex to improve the going. The courses are designed to educate and give confidecne to both horses and riders at the beginning of the season. The course runs over undulating permanent pasture and near MAXIMUM LENGTH. Fit horses are required. Every effort will be made to ensure good going. Fences are well dressed and are designed to provide a positive round with achievable questions.
