SRC Launch Their Virtual Cross Country Course Walks

To all eventing enthusiasts, we present to you the first of the Solihull Riding Club Virtual Course Walks to be released before each event on our Youtube Channel.

We thought this would be a good idea to help those of you who can’t walk the course the day or night before, saves coming over to us or rushing around for the busier of you all! Of course we do recommend walking it if you have time or if there are any elements you need to look at further.

This may also help those of you who are coming into the world of eventing and want to see what the courses are like at SRC.

We will be doing this for every possible affiliated and unaffiliated one day event moving forward as something special to Solihull Riding Club for competitors.

Good luck to all competing on Sunday, we’d love to hear what you invest your prize money and SRC vouchers on!

Thanks to this continued good weather our grounds are drying out nicely and are pleased to confirm the going is good on the Cross Country Hire Field. The field includes;

– Fences with heights 50cm to 1.0m
– Water Complex
– Ditches
– Steps
– Protected take off and landing between some fences.

Fees are – £10 per horse for a SRC member
– £20 per horse for a non-member

Do let the office know in advance that you intend to use the hire field, this is to ensure times in the field are not overcrowded.
Please wear correct clothing including body protector and medical armband.

Utmost care is taken to keep the grounds in good shape for you to enjoy, however some parts of the ground may still be saturated and we respectfully request that these areas are avoided when possible.

Enjoy your cross country training and see you at one of our One Day Events!
