Walk the 2017 Blenheim CCI3* cross-county course

  • This year’s SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials CCI3* track has been designed by David Evans.

    Featuring two crossings of the lake plus a dew pond, big open ditches as well as challenging light and terrain, the beautifully presented course is set to test combinations’ accuracy and stamina.

    H&H takes a look at the course, which riders will tackle tomorrow (Saturday, 16 September).
