Sadly, due to the weather, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Saturday’s hunter trial. After all the recent rain, ground conditions are very soft, particularly in the parking area, and with the forecast for the rest of the week being very unsettled, we feel this is the best thing to do for the safety and enjoyment of our competitors.
We are very sorry to disappoint everyone who has entered – please bear with us while we try to process refunds. We would also like to thank all the lovely people who had offered to help on the day. We hope you understand and we look forward to seeing everyone next season.
*** Hunter Trial – Saturday, 19th October 2019 *** Our annual Hunter Trial is planned for Saturday, 19th October. There will be the usual classes, including the popular pairs class. This year, we are running a class open to all ages over a shorter distance, using the smallest fences with heights of 1’9″ (50 cms) or lower. This should make it an ideal outing for green or less fit horses as well as less experienced or less fit competitors! Assistance is allowed if desired.
The schedule and entry form are now available on the News Page and you can also enter online at www.equoevents.com
At Kinnaird Cross Country, we extend a warm
welcome to riders and their friends and families from all over Fife and beyond.
The course is centrally located in beautiful
rolling countryside on our family farm at Dairsie near Cupar in Fife. Here we
have created a safe environment for you and your horse to enjoy all the
challenges of cross country riding at your chosen level – with or without your
We have a wide variety of fences at different
height options and everything is securely staked/spirofixed in position. There
is something for everyone, from those just starting out at cross country to
those with much more experience, and the great vantage points are perfect for
spectators and instructors.
The hill is ideal for fitness training and you
can practice show jumping on grass with our working hunter jumps on a flat area
at the start of the course. This is also a safe warm-up space to get your eye
in before you tackle the solid fences.
If you are visiting Fife for a few days, why
not enjoy a short break with your horse? We can offer stabling and grazing
including full use of the course and can also set up a dressage arena for you if
required. Non-horsey members of your
group will also find lots to do locally.
Group bookings are welcome and the course is
perfect for riding clubs and pony clubs as well as those who prefer to practice
on their own. We can also help you organise competitions and events here throughout
