JumpCross is inviting equestrian centres, farms and landowners to apply to become sites for the popular sport.

Since its launch nine years ago JumpCross has grown to become an established discipline with numerous sites throughout the UK, Belgium, France and Denmark.

JumpCross is similar to cross-country competition, except over knock-down jumps (see picture).

A training scheme has been developed plans are underway for the 2012 JumpCross Young Riders Challenge Final.

Robin Dunlop of JumpCross says: “JumpCross is now extremely popular, we already have 17 sites in this country that are up and running but we would like to see JumpCross develop even more.”

He said JumpCross offers landowners the ideal opportunity to diversify and to develop a new and exciting business.

A typical JumpCross track measures 1800m – 2200m and ideally the course runs over eight to 10 acres and includes water features, hills and typical cross-country terrain.

Said Robin: “We would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in establishing JumpCross sites around the country.
