    What the organisers say

    The dressage and showjumping are on flat grass with ample warm-up space.

    The cross-country fences are continually updated by the course-designer/builder Mark Watler. The course runs on undulating, permanent pasture, incorporating woodland areas.. Every effort will be made to ensure that the going is as good as possible, including use of the equi-vator if needed. The tracks flow, and boast an excellent variety of fences. All levels are designed to be confidence giving yet suitably testing.

    No major changes are planned for this season to the courses, but there is a date change from August to the first weekend in September, with lower levels (BE80(T), BE90 and BE100) on Sunday, 6 September and higher levels (novice and BE100) on Monday, 7 September.

    Our courses suit all levels. Sapey is well known as an ideal course for giving confidence and being educational.
