Mid Week Mini ODE - School Holiday Fun

Woodhill Sands will be holding a mid week mini ode for those of you looking for some fun in the school holidays or who have flexible work hours.
16th April (Thursday)  our day will run like a normal mini ode - It is just like an ODE with a dressage test, SJ round and a xc round. However the mini ODE is about training your horse therefore jumping phase is not timed.  As soon as your finish your show Jumping round you start your cross country this is a small run of cross country fences (approx  9 -10). Faults are awarded SJ faults for SJ fences i.e  stop = 4 faults,  XC faults for XC fences i.e stop =20 faults.
Dressage tests are Woodhill Sands's very own and can be found on the eventing page.
