Eventing is the triathlon of equestrian sports, each competitor and the same horse compete in three different phases being Dressage, Cross Country and Show Jumping throughout the weekend.
Tim Payne, our very own international course designer and his team are hard at work with the construction of the 3* cross country course – over 30 obstacles placed over a distance of 3575ms. The Mini Champs will be over a distance of 3000ms as well as three other tracks for the 1m, 90 and 80 levels. Ditches, banks, logs, water crossings, the broken bridge, and old dairy ruins are just some of the obstacles they may encounter.
