A bit about Lindores Cross Country…

 

The cross country training ground which marked its 30th anniversary in 2019 has over 125 fences built to British Eventing regulation standard. It stretches over 85 acres of good going – well draining authentic cross country terrain. 

 

Lindores cross country course has a huge variety of jump styles with fence heights range from 30cm to 1.10m.  We regularly welcome absolute beginners through to 2** eventers who train at Lindores regularly.

 

Fence designs include ditches, spreads, corners, skinnies, uprights, log piles, whisky barrels, ski jumps, combinations, pheasant feeders, trakeners, beehives, brush, cottages, a keyhole and a large 20m x 20m water complex with run ins, run outs, steps, an upturned boat and a jump into water.

 

In 2018 we launched Scotland’s first ever pace training facility called Lindores Optimum Time Trial.  This innovative and helpful training track on grass is now part of Lindores Cross Country course hire. Find out more about Lindores Optimum Time Trial here.

 

The training ground is professionally maintained by David Wilson Accredited BE course builder and James Oakden BE course designer.  Every year we introduce bespoke new fences built by Accredited British Eventing Course Builder David Wilson.

 

2020 – we will have new fences, a bigger water complex and changes to the course design – follow our social media pages for updates. 

 

COME AND TRAIN EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!!  Grass training is open 7 days a week between 1st March and 31st October 2020 (when not in lockdown) during daylight hours.
