Course description

The course is run over old parkland with an uphill climb near the start.
There are two completely separate tracks with a wide variety of solid and inviting fences including a good sized water jump and a bank with steps down.
There will be 6 new fences this year to keep up the standard as well as re locating others to keep the interest of competitors.
Our aim is to encourage rather than frighten and there are alternatives at the more testing fences.
We will take all necessary steps to ensure good going, including equivating of the track, Show Jumping Arena, Dressage Arenas and all warm up areas as we did last year and all Competitors agreed the going was excellent.
See our website for course maps and photographs of most fences www.buckminsterparkode.co.uk (some of the new ones are not on site yet!)
