Cross country

We offer a XC course of 60 fences including:
 

  • 2 WATER COMPLEXES

  • 2 STEP COMPLEXES (1 a part of the water complex)

  • 2 BANKS

  • MANY DITCHES 

  • MANY COMBINATIONS


There is excellent viewing of the entirety of the course, the jumps range in size from 75cm through to 1.10m, making

it an ideal venue for teaching and it is often used for many Riding Club, Pony Club and British Eventing Clinics.  

The course has been designed by British Eventing Accredited designer Simon Bere, who is also a technical delegate for British Eventing.

With further design and input from Dom Moore of Jumps One. A local accredited course builder and designer with close links to Eric Winter, Badminton 5* course designer since 2017.

 

Built with locally sourced timber and all the materials are up cycled in origin. Much thought has been given to how they can embellish the work our designers. 

The location has been specifically chosen for the drainage of the old turf to provide consistent and secure footing with good grass coverage throughout the year. With strong emphasis placed on eco management of the ground to include rotational sheep grazing to keep machinery intervention at a minimum.

PSA:

We ask that every rider:

  • Wears a British Eventing approved crash hat and body protector.

  • Uses the facility entirely at their own risk.

  • Is accompanied by another adult.

  • Keeps the gate shut at all times.


The use of the cross country schooling course can ONLY be used by prior arrangement.

There are all weather approaches and landings at some jump complexes, we hope to add to these over time. The cross country area is fully enclosed, the gates MUST be shut at all times.

The site is owned by The Cricket St Thomas Estate and the farming is sheep orientated so please keep all dogs on leads at all times.  

There is ample parking adjacent to the course, we would recommend that you keep all vehicles locked. There is also good mobile phone coverage. 

 

Please stick to our access and departure routes to avoid blockages and inconvenience to visitors and our neighbours.

 

Visitors cooperation is appreciated. Thank you!
