Has anyone had much experience with the ground there? I messaged them and they said it was getting on the firm side but they were hoping to aerovate the XC. Is it ever rutted/is their good grass coverage?

Am fully expecting to withdraw but thought some of you may know the place better than me.

I think a beach ride may be in order instead!

Grass coverage is good, must admit haven't walked the ground but it is always maintained and it looked as though they were aerovating the other day. We are just up the road & ground is getting harder however we have done nothing to our grass!!

That?s interesting Michen, I hadn?t realised the ground was getting so hard there! Sounds like my plans for the weekend might be altering :(

It’s rock hard in Norh hants. I would be less concerned if it was more hilly. My horse went to Millfield at the weekend and it was very good going but another week of sun and I think it would have been too firm.

I may be wrong though and it might be fine!! Going to try and walk course on Friday and see.

This was the yard where the arson was wasn't it - poor ponies and pussy cat.

I?ve just checked the criteria Michen and we?ve missed the deadline? So will forfeit our entry fee if we withdraw - I was thinking about it after my accident yesterday, I?m bruised stiff and sore all over

Looks like they are busy aerovating at the moment Levrier :)
Great news, thanks :) Such a relief tonight to find my mojo again after losing it on Monday when my darling horse trampled on me, so we will definitely be going on Saturday :)
