Courtesy of our friends at Three Maids, we are inviting you to take up the Sagittarian Challenge.
The challenge is to complete as many laps as you can of the 3km course. The course is made up of mainly grass (and mud) with obstacles and hurdles along the way. Imagine being a horse and running free around the course, with the wind in your hair and mud in your eyes!!
Three Maids is a family-run equestrian facility just outside Winchester. There has been a cross-country course at Down Farm for many years, and some may remember it as Course no.5 of UK Chasers. In 2007/8 we completed a major programme of improvements. The idea was to transform a tired cross-country course into a venue designed with the enthusiastic amateur in mind. In addition to improving and upgrading the jumps on the hunter trial course, we built a number of new permanent obstacles, several movable jumps and created the schooling field, showjumping area and dressage area. Around the same time we converted an old farm workshop into a dining room with a commercial kitchen.
We are sure you are going to love this event, and return year after year. We are so sure, that we are planning a 24 hour event later in the year to include camping.
