    How to get there

    Treborough Hill is situated on the B3224 between Raleigh’s Cross and Wheddon Cross.

    It is easily accessed from M5 junction 25 (Taunton). Please be aware that there are low bridges on the A358 from Taunton and on the B3224. To avoid these, exit at M5 junction 24 (Bridgwater) onto the A39, then turn onto the B3224 at Tropiquaria. Exit the M5 at junction 27 (Tiverton) if traveling west. Postcode TA23 0LG. Satnavs do not reliably guide you to the venue.

    What the organisers say

    We have continued to invest in the course and offer new fences and a brand new track for 2015. Designed by Adrian Ditcham, our cross-country course will give a positive, flowing ride across open ground. It is ideal to bring on young horses or move up the levels: we have a great, first-time novice course.

    We continue to utilise the masses of space, with ample room for dressage, showjumping and warm-up areas.

    Our established turf holds up well in both wet and dry conditions, allowing us to run when others can’t. With views across Exmoor to the Bristol Channel, it is a fantastic event for spectators too.
