The Cross Country Course, opened in August 2016 and designed by Tina Ure, has an open and flowing feel across gently undulating terrain. The ability to view nearly all the course and jumps at once, together with an impressive water feature, gives a great sense of enjoyment.
Further improvement this year include the development of a lovely second woodland glade and a number new fences which, when added to the 25 new fences last year, will further improve the fun this year. These courses are designed to be inviting, educational and suitable for horses and riders stepping up a level, with the BE80 track being a great introduction to the sport.
The course will be equivated and, if required, irrigated – including all working areas – to ensure the ground conditions are as good as possible. For feedback from previous years, please visit the Horseheath Horse Trials Facebook page.
