Ivesley's cross country course, formerly used for British Eventing events, is well known across the North East region and is the jewel in the crown of the Ivesley estate. Since Ivesley changed hands in March 2013, the course has been significantly improved with many new portable jumps added to the already extensive course, many jumps rebuilt and a new warm-up area added.
The course runs across three fields, with jumps ranging from 40cm to 100cm and full courses of 55cm, 70cm, 80cm and 95cm available. The portable jumps mean the course can be rearranged throughout the season for competitions. Ivesley has hosted unaffiliated Hunter Trials, Show Cross and One Day Events, including the British Riding Club Horse Trial Qualifiers in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The course is available to hire for third party events, including Riding Club or Pony Club events, clinics or rallies and can be rearranged and flagged to each event's specific requirements.
We organise cross country schooling days throughout the season and the course is available for hire at other times. It is closed during the winter and while the hay is being taken from the fields for a period during the summer. Please do call to check availability on 0191 3737220.
