“A wonderful cross-country site, interesting and beautifully maintained, with so many different types of fences – a far cry from a collection of boring roll-tops” 

Lucinda Green, six-times Badminton winner 

 

Lodge Farm Cross-Country Course offers more than 90 fences from 60cm to 1.10m including ditches, corners, arrowheads, skinnies, steps, lots of combinations plus two water complexes. The terrain is principally flat, but there is good use made of the natural features.

Set in 40 acres of well-maintained grassland it is ideal for schooling young horses, for a quick pre-event practice over a course of fences or for a training session with your instructor.

All fences have prepared take-offs and landings and the excellent viewing makes our course popular with instructors and parents.

Top riders who visit us on a regular basis include Francis Whittington, Will Furlong, Felicity Collins, Tom Crisp and Camilla Kruger.

We are open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, plus some extra days during school holidays, from the beginning of March until the end of October. Easy parking and good access from the M25 and A21.

**Book online here**

    Feedback from our Facebook Page:
  • “Perfect ground when so many are hard. Great selection of fences, ideal for schooling, I'd highly recommend”

  • “Excellent course! The ground is very well looked after, perfect conditions for a schooling session or to compete at.”

Have a long line of thank yous, but top of the list has to be our band of brilliant volunteers who gave up their days to help out – from arena party to jump judges and stewards – we couldn’t have done it without you.

Having never run a competition like this before it was very much a venture into unknown, so we were enormously grateful for Ian N Bareham ‘s input and expertise along the way and to BRITISH RIDING CLUBS AREA 10 for sharing the organisation.

A big thank you, too, to our lovely sponsors:

RHN Saddlery
In Hand Equine Osteopathy
GG’s Tack Shop

Also to Lingfield Equine Vets and Event Ambulance Service

Lots of you have asked whether we will run another Eventers Challenge… the good news is that it will be back even better in 2025! Next event here is Friends of Freddie Horse Trials on 21 July.
