We currently run two unaffiliated combined training competitions each year through February and March. This provides a great opportunity for riders from all disciplines to get out and start competing after a quiet winter, ready for the season.
All dressage classes are run under BD rules; all show jumping classes are run under BS rules.
For a schedule and entry form please see our Schedules page.
Our new Cross Country field offers exciting challenges for all levels of riders, from beginners to the advanced rider. It is an ongoing development and we are working closely with Willis Brothers to ensure that our riders are consistently faced with new challenges and diversity of different fences.
Amongst our Cross Country field we have included a large water complex, variety of ditches, a range of steps and a multi-faceted bank; we also have 20+ mobile fences that are strategically placed around the field giving the horse and rider a wide range of heights, combinations and technical challenges.
Our Cross Country field was successfully launched in August 2014 with Wokingham Pony Club who held their Pony Club camp here for a week and had lots of fun exploring the new field and the many challenges it holds.
