Anyone from the area from a certain generation, will remember the original British Horse Trials course and the fun they had there. This was run by Richard and Flo for many years and was a challenging course built over the stunning Sussex countryside.
The new course is set on part of the old site, utilising the fantastic natural rises of the hill. It is designed to be both encouraging and educational, with a good variety of fences laid out to allow schooling over individual obstacles as well as linking several together. The inclusion of the grass gallops, gives the wonderful opportunity for fittening and to be able to learn pace over distance.
It is our aim to be as approachable as possible, providing a friendly and helpful venue for many. The course is available for hire by all, as well as organised groups. Should you wish to run a clinic or book for a pony club/ riding club training session, please do contact us directly to arrange dates etc. If you wish to use only the gallops, again do contact us directly.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Petworth Schooling Course
