How to get there
Grid ref SE208969. Richmond EC is at Breckenbrough Farm, Tunstall, five miles from the A1.
What the organisers say
The dressage is on flat grass with the warm-up on a slight slope on grass next to the arenas. The showjumping is in a 75x50m all-weather arena.
The cross-country tracks are being refreshed for 2015, under the guidance of our new course-designer, Douglas Weymouth. All tracks are on permanent pasture and the courses run over slightly undulating terrain. We will agri-vate if necessary. Tracks incorporate a mix of portable and permanent fences and a water complex.
All courses are designed to educate the novice horse and rider and are suitable for first-timers, with alternatives where necessary.
