Sapey provides a variety of educational and well-presented fences for all levels. Course designer Lucy McCarty has some intersting features and asks new question but the course remains inviting and is designed to be confidence giving and yet suitably testing.   This course is suitable for first timers as well as more experienced horses, and is free-flowing over undulating terrain on permanent pasture, including areas of woodland and a water complex. Every effort will be made to ensure that the going will be as good as possible, including use of the equivator if necessary.   Excellent spectator viewing course and compact site with easy access from the lorry park to all phases of the competition.


Hot and cold food available on site. Accommodation list available from Audrey Thacker.
