Get your brave pants on: walk Blenheim’s CCI3* cross-country course

  • Today (15 September), the cross-country phase of the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials CCI3* class gets underway.

    This marks the second year that David Evans has designed both the CCI3* and eight- and nine-year-old CIC3* tracks at Blenheim.

    David says: “I have increased the height and technicality of the CCI3* a little in 2018. Both tracks, when ridden well, should give horses and riders a great feeling and they should finish full of confidence and having furthered their education.”
