"Little Whittington XC, FAB venue
Sarah Proudlock and Mary Ann Rogers have chosen Little Whittington XC as a venue to hold the Border Hunter trial since the cross country course was completed and open for business.
‘We jumped at the chance to use this great course, having dropped the Border hunter trial from our programme of fundraising events several years ago due to lack of a local venue. The course is superb, with new and more interesting fences and combinations added every year.
The Nixon family are extremely accommodating, and even help us secure knowledgeable assistance in running what we believe is the best, safest and most professionally run hunter trial in the North east.
One of the great advantages of Little Whittington XC is the chance for our competitors to school over the fences throughout the spring/summer months, gaining the confidence to really push themselves and their horses at this event which is held in September.
Time and time again we get the most wonderful feedback from riders letting us know how much they enjoyed the event, how welcomed they felt, and how great the course is.
Having one of our most successful young up and coming eventers, Pip Nixon, living, training and running her yard at Little Whittington adds to the sense of it being a really special venue. We are very much looking forward to another great day on 24th September."
