The Winter XC Loop

This facility provides some XC practice for the Winter months and early Spring while the ground on the XC is still too wet to use. You can ONLY book it when the grass XC is closed, as it becomes part of the grass XC in Summer / Autumn.

Currently with 30 fences, mostly BE100 to Novice level, but with 11 or 12 at BE 80/90 , the track forms a continuous undulating loop between the two far water jumps (drained of water during the Winter because of ice, but turned into quarries). If you need to practise water while they are empty you can have a paddle in the water jump near the house on the bridleway providing you stay on the hard standing.

**If frost is forecast book after 11am to allow to thaw, but bear in mind it may still be firm for jumping**

A useful exercise track without jumps too for those looking for an outing, but it is not intended as a gallop.

15 per horse (for up to an hour)

Exclusivity for one booking per hour for up to 5 horses within a group so you can have the loop to yourself or have fun with friends (you would need to book on their behalf as part of your group) and there will be no overcrowding.
