Great!

SueEllen will deffo want to come but she's not back from NZ until December.. Odie will need at least a month to get back into a fit state so that works out..

So sometime in December maybe ? (I will hopefully have a decent towing car by then too..fingerscrossed..otherwise I can maybe borrow next-doors Jeep)

I'll PM Keep The Faith too..

:D

me too, id say i could borrow a box easily enough and then OH's boss has a jeep for work he might loan him for a day or someone from my yard might be tempted by the aforementioned slow pace and non judging atmosphere of those with green horses!

:D ... perfect atmosphere !! We'll have a decent lead horse though too.. SueEllen's SueEllen is really good.. will jump pretty much anything.. so if we did need a lead she'll go..

The car thing is pants.. My Jeep is just totally unreliable.. I wouldn't risk a trip like that in it.. Don't trust it at all - the horrid piece of American Junk!

I do have use of a box and a jeep to pull and could offer to pick some else up in it - only thing is, it doesnt have a partition?? Not sure how safe it is to put two horses in without a partition and also have no experience of how Nuka is with other another horse in the box!!

He is an angel on his own though!

That's precisely what I meant. I would take Fákur along to do the non jumpy bits! he'd love it!

What an absolutely fantastic idea! That looks like my ideal day out :) (the tea and biscuits at the end are the deal clincher).

I would love to know how they set it up? Did they own the land, or get permission from farmers (or pay farmers a percentage of takings? - now that would be an interesting model...)

If you find out any of this, please post, so that I can start canvassing my local farmers ;) and collecting jump building materials. Skippy, Lucyad - are we in? :D

its all on their land. It used to be an Eventing course and it's used predominantly to bring on horses for hunting.

The land is owned by two people.

So.. has anyone done it? i've been toying with the idea for weeks.. but would love to hear from someone who has actually done a run!

i havnt dont it but know plenty on my yard who have. it has a reputation for being very fast but lots of fun

cant say any really novicey riders on my yard have done it but the ones who have all survived. there supposedly different groups depending on ability but im not actually sure if thats the case
