COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Cross Country courses were totally new in 2013 using an area in Windsor Great Park not previously used for Smiths Lawn Horse Trials and run from beyond the Dressage on Smiths Lawn behind Cumberland Lodge on the same side of Smiths Lawn as the Dressage and Show Jumping. The Cross Country start is therefore much nearer to the rest of the Event than in previous years!   The courses are designed by Nigel Taylor and built by Andrew Hunter and are intended for first timers at both BE100 and Novice levels.  The courses are designed to be educational and take advantage of the natural features of the Park.

ACCOMMODATION AND CATERING

Hot and cold food available on site.
