Course Description: Stafford's course is a well-built introduction to British Eventing, designed by Janet Plant and built by James Plant. Stafford's course has consistently received high praise from riders for its going and high quality obstacles. The courses are designed to educate and give confidence to both horses and riders at the beginning of the season. The course runs over undulating permanent pasture and near MAXIMUM LENGTH. Fit horses are required. Every effort will be made to ensure good going. Fences are well dressed and are designed to provide a positive round with achievable questions. Some fences have options for more novice competitors. Plenty of level pasture for all warm ups.
