Ian Stark, Course Designer for Hutton International Horse Trials

Former International three day event rider, Ian Stark, has been appointed the Course Designer for Hutton in the Forest Horse Trials, (21 – 23 August). Ian will design the 3*** and 2** courses and work alongside event organiser Douglas Weymouth as Course Builder.

Ian is looking forward to the event: “This is my first 3*** course that I’ve designed in Britain and I’m very pleased to be designing at this level and so close to home. I rode at Hutton a few years ago and thought it was a fantastic venue.”

“I’ve no pre-conceived ideas about how I’m going to design the course, but I’m doing a full walk of the location in the next few weeks and the lay of the land will tell me what will work.”

Ian has previously designed 3*** courses at Tyrella, Ireland and Galway Downs, California. Ian also spends a lot of time training event riders around the world after his retirement from International competition last year. Ian is well experienced at riding round this type of course having been a three times Badminton Horse Trials winner and regularly placed at 3*** competitions such as Boekelo and Bramham.

Iain Graham, British Eventing Regional Director said: “I am sure Ian Stark will relish the opportunity to create these new international courses at Hutton in the Forest and will no doubt set the right balance of challenge and education required for the up and coming horses and riders in our sport.”

Ronald Alexander will be the Technical Delegate for the 3*** and 2** classes.
