30th May Practise SJ & XC
31st May Mini ODE
1st June Queens Birthday Monday ORD


Queens Birthday Weekend Fun!

A busy Queens Birthday weekend is in store for Woodhill Sands, Saturday will have the very popular practise SJ and XC, These fun training days are a great chance through out winter to get your horse jumping  cross country and show jumps, There is usually one fully set Show Jumping course that you can adjust heights according to your experience level and practise rounds or a few jumps, plus a variety of cross country fences, which may include,   corners, mobiles, skinnies etc.  Room may be limited depending on weather, however with almost 3 acres of sand arenas we are guaranteed to run.  Riders are required to wear back protectors and medical armbands and provide emergency contacts if riding alone.  We strongly recommend having a friend, instructor or family member with you when you jump, however we will have a staff member on hand at all times when you are jumping.
Fences open for jumping will be flagged, just like in a normal competition situation we ask that you keep the red flag on your right hand side when jumping any fences, this will keep the track around the jumps flowing and avoid head on collisions, we ask that all riders show courtesy to others riding in the same practise session (we try to limit the sessions to four riders per half hour) to give everyone space.  Bookings are essential so we don't have twenty riders all show up a the same time and a draw will be posted on the website usually the day prior to the practise day.
All riders on the day must sign in at the Kiosk and Yes it will be serving, cold drinks, espresso coffee and light snacks.

Sunday starts the Mini ODE It is just like a normal 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. Heights start from 50cm and go right up to 105cm xc.
