FACILITIES AT BASSINGFIELD RIDING SCHOOL
Below is a non exhaustive list of some of the main facilities you will find at Bassingfield Riding School & Livery.
Cross Country Course
Bassingfield Riding School & Livery has an excellent cross country course built, designed and maintained by Ed and James.
In its current state it has around 40 jumps but we are always building more.
These range from trakehners of varying height to, coffins, drops, ski jumps, tiger traps, (white) oxers, roll top skinnies, chairs, a gate to open and close, a corner and even a couple of Churches (seen opposite).
We encourage people to try out these jumps, though to do so you must sign the cross country contract and inform a member of staff that you are doing so.
We occasionally run a local hunter trial and encourage people to play a part and have fun.
