Little Downham has six separate courses, up to height and substantial but with lots of alternatives at the more challenging fences. The courses are educational, with a wide variety of inviting fences, and there are a high number of completions in each class, there will be changes to all courses from the earlier events. The Advanced course will be suitable for a newly upgraded horse to gain confidence before the end of the season, and will have fewer accuracy questions. There is plenty of level working area for all phases, the peaty soils stand up to heavy rain, and an irrigation system has been installed for the show-jumping arena and cross country course to ensure that the ground will be good whatever the weather.


Hot and cold food available on-site.
Local hotel and B&B accomodation available, please ask at Ely Tourist Office.
