Cross Country Course Hire

Our British Eventing standard cross country course incorporates fences from mini training fences through to BE Novice, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Our Cross Country Course is available for schooling hire throughout the eventing season (approx. April - September, weather dependent). Whether you’re preparing for a competition or just want to have fun with friends, our XC training course incorporates everything from mini fences through to BE Novice, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Individuals, groups, instructors and clinics all welcome.

Our well-built solid fences are designed with safety in mind, and many feature all-weather take-off and landing points where needed. Set through a combination of grassland and woodland, the undulating nature of the ground makes it a great course for schooling, fitness and training.

The original course design and construction was by Huw Lochore. New fences and complexes are under continuous development under the supervision of Stewart Buntine, an Advanced List Course Designer for British Eventing.
