The event benefits from and makes full use of the magnificent Kirkley estate and our centralised layout works very well to make it competitor friendly.  We intend to keep developing and improving the event based on competitor feedback and every effort will be made to ensure a good day out for everybody.

Dressage & show jumping is on flat ground close to the lorry park. We will have a variety of show jumps with the aim of making the course as attractive and inviting as possible.

Cross-country: All three courses will run in the same direction as last year with changes to all courses. Kirkley Hall's natural terrain offers a variety of woodland, gradients, water crossing and water jump and the main stretches are on well established permanent pasture. There will be a mixture of permanent and portable fences. There will be some new fences on all courses for 2018. The courses suit all combinations at these levels including first time combinations with a variety of questions asked but with alternatives at some key complexes.


Hot and cold food available throughout the event. Accommodation list  - please contact the organisers.
