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.
As usual, several fences will be replaced to keep up the standard as well as relocating others to keep the interest of competitors.
There will be a new combination after the bottom of the hill on both courses and  we have moved the start, first and second fences as well as the last fences and finish onto new ground.
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, Showjumping Arena and warm-up areas.
See our website for course maps and photographs of most fences: www.buckminsterparkode.co.uk
(some new ones are not onsite yet!)
