COURSE DESCRIPTION

Novice, BE100, BE90 and BE80(T) courses will start in the opposite direction this year, with changes in all routes.   

The course consists of a wide variety of high quality, inviting fences both permanent and portable with alternatives at all of the more challenging fences. The BE80 & BE90 classes provide an excellent introduction to eventing and the BE100 and Novice courses provide a solid and confidence building mid-season run.
For those who have not been to Scotsburn before, the dressage is held on flat permanent pasture. The SJ takes place in a fenced arena at the heart of the event surrounded by the secretary's tent and trade stands and is the centrepiece of the day. The highlight of the XC is a 100 yard flooded causeway canal complete with lock gates to jump for the BE90, BE100 and Novice but that open for the BE80 to gallop through obstacle free. At Scotsburn our aim is to provide a high standard eventing venue in the north of Scotland to suit all levels of experience, everyone is welcome!
