    David Evans is the cross-country course-designer for the BE90, BE100 and novice tracks and there will be direction changes from the April fixture.

    The dressage will be sited in a large, flat grass field that is well away from the cross-country course. The showjumping will also be held on grass.

    The cross-country has inviting and educational courses. There are two water complexes, plus banks and ditches. The ground is well-draining sandy land and the going is good. The course has some undulations but it is predominantly flat. The tracks are inviting, well built and educational.

    Changes will be made to ensure the tracks are different to those at the April fixture and we will water and aera-vate the course if the ground is too firm.
