Course Description

The course is run over old parkland with an uphill climb near the start.
There will be three 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 new fences replacing the Timber Wagons.
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 XC track, Show Jumping and Dressage  Arenas andall warm up areas.
See our website for course maps and photographs of most fences www.buckminsterparkode.co.uk The Courses will also be on the Cross Country App a couple of days before the event.
