Little Downham has five separate courses.  All are up to height and substantial with alternatives at the more challenging fences.  Courses are suitable for competitors aiming to upgrade to the next level.  The 1.05 course will be different to the 100 track and have some questions of greater difficulty than for BE100.  The showjumping will be a smaller version of the novice course and will include a treble.  All courses are educational, inviting and have two water crossings, ditches and steps that are appropriate to the level.  There is plenty of level ground for working in for all phases, the peaty soils stand up to heavy rain and an irrigation system is available in the event of dry weather to ensure that the ground will be good in all phases. 


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