A bit about Lindores Cross Country…

Awarded ‘Equestrian Business of the Year 2019’ was the icing on the cake for Lindores.  The cross country training ground which marks its 30th anniversary 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.

2018 was first class year with the launch of 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.
