The Chedington Bicton Horse Trials showjumping course for the five-star competition has been designed by Paul Connor.
Riders will tackle 12 numbered fences, including a double at fence five and a treble at fence nine.
Bicton Horse Trials showjumping course
Riders double back left-handed after fence one, jumping fence two at an angle across the arena.
After fence two, competitors turn right to fence three.
It’s then on round the right-hand turn to fence four, the triple bar, which is the start of the first related distance on course.
It is likely to be seven strides from fence four to the double at fence 5ab.
There is one stride between elements a and b in the double.
Riders turn left through 180-degrees after fence 5ab.
It is then a slight left-hand curve to the related distance at fences seven and eight.
Most horses will take five strides from the upright at fence seven to the oxer over a water tray at fence eight.
A wide sweeping turn left-handed takes riders from fence eight to the treble at fence 9abc.
There is one stride from 9a to 9b and another one stride on to 9c.
Riders make a right-handed curve from the treble to the upright at fence 10.
After fence 10, riders turn right and double back round to another upright at fence 11.
Riders then curve left-handed to the final spread fence.
