Attention Hunter/Jumpers and Eventers - Need somewhere to practice before your next show?
Want somewhere to just come and 'play' with your horse for the day?
Ride through our practice cross country course...perfect for beginner novice through training level. We can even set some of our cross country obstacles to 18 in - 2 ft if you simply want to "try it out!" Jump over an angled fence, tree trunk, corner jump, wall, mini palisades, tabletop and more. You'll ride through the fence obstacles in Hummingbird Hollow up to the Head of the Pond, where you'll meet a fence/wall option. You can even splash through the pond...
Or try out our jump field, complete with a 3 jump line, oxer, liverpool, brick wall, stone wall coop, and more! You can pick your course, any height. Roll backs and challenging combos to make you and your horse think! Or practice a solid hunter round before your big event.
