The perfect opportunity to put your cross country skills to the test! This non-competitive event runs over the BE Standard XC course at Eland Lodge. The aim is to provide an encouraging practice round for young and inexperienced horses and riders, or for those looking to practice before moving up a level.

At each fence complex you can choose whether to jump the 70cm, 80cm, 90cm or 1m option. You don’t have to stick to one height, so your round can take advantage of this pick ‘n mix approach so you can get the best ride. There are between 23 – 27 jumping efforts on each course, including a water complex.

Each riders is given an individual timeslot. Numbers and times are issued 48hrs before the event. The course will be available for walking from 2pm on the day prior to the event.

This isn’t a schooling round – you need to progress through the course at a reasonable pace (trot or canter), choose one option to jump at each opportunity, and after 3 refusals must move on to the next fence. If you’re not quite ready for this event, why not hire our XC course to practice, or book onto one of our clinics.

Entry Fee: £17 per round
