Course description

Pontispool's course runs over permanent grass and parkland and crosses interesting, mildly undulating countryside. Designed by Eric Winter all courses are up to height and inviting. There are a good variety of fences and the designer makes use of natural features and three water complexes.. The BE aggravators will be used if conditions require and there are all weather take-offs and landings at permanent fences. Each year new fences are added and the courses vary between BE events.The show jumping takes place on all-weather and the show jump practice arena is on the same surface.
