Cross Country Schooling Course

The Nurstead Court Cross Country Schooling course is now open.  The course designer is Scott Brickell who was part of the design team for the London 2012 Olympics in Greenwich Park. 

The jumps vary in size from 70cm up to 100cm.  There is a water complex (see photo at top of page by  Stephen Bartholomew Photography - http://www.stephen-bartholomew-photography.co.uk/-/galleries/client-galleries/nurstead-court-stables-xc-fences), bank, steps, ditches, trakehners and a variety of skinnies, doubles, corners, etc all set out in the Park which is undulating and has a good covering of established turf.  We recommend that those using the course are around Pony Club Level 2/3 standard and above.  Some new smaller jumps (50/60 cm in height)  now added.

Here is some recently received feedback from instructors and individuals:

‘I think I can definitely describe our visit to your cross country course as beyond our expectations. The variety of fences was excellent and we couldn’t believe how good the ground was, given the recent weather.’

‘I can only say wonderful things, we had a brilliant time.  I was really impressed at having the chance to do cross country on a more challenging terrain and loved the bank complex.  We will definitely be back!’

‘Thank you, we very much enjoyed our first visit to Nurstead on Saturday.  The setting is beautiful and our horses all enjoyed themselves.’

‘We all had a smashing time and will definitely be coming back soon.’
