Crossing Country:
Aswanley’s courses are predominantly pasture and excellent going, making full use of natural ground: streams, banks and ditches, with fast galloping stretches beside the River Deveron.

The Novice and Open Novice are full length with alternatives at difficult fences. 

The BE100 course is suitable for young horses with an alternative available to the previously problematic ditch.

The BE90 offers unparalled education for youngsters encouraging a gradual build-up of confidence. The previously problematical ditch (fence number 6) has been taken out of this course.

The BE80(T) course gives riders the opportunity to learn to cross the open country boldly on a well- constructed course including two walk in water obstacles.

Aswanley Horse Trials Starting Times:

The Aswanley cross country has been going for 20 years, originally designed and built by Tom and Pam Ingleby. Since the year 2000, the course has been run under British Eventing affiliation, the highest spec you can get in the sport, and has benefited from the expertise of a range of course designers: Rob McSkimming, Ronald Alexander, Tim Hadaway and Hugh Lochore.

The Aswanley cross-country course is fantastic with plenty of challenging, natural ditches and water – the perfect place where young horses and riders can learn to progress to the top.
