Course Information

All courses were rerouted in 2023. Aimed as encouraging courses there will be two water complexes for all classes. Scott Brickell will be designing all courses. Brightling has rolling hills, some of the steeper inclines have been removed and the long hill at the end of the novice has gone! The Courses offered great viewing for owners and support staff. Ground will be aggrovated as required. We hope Brightling will be a fun and educational day for all, riders and horses.

Additional Information


Show Jumping Warm-Up Policy – Our stewards will stick to timetabled slots as much as they can, but please always check with them before warming up (and preferably before coming down to the ring). They will endeavour to get ahead of schedule if possible. Where there are gaps, it maybe possible for riders to slot in a certain extent but not out of section – this system is implemented to ensure section runs according to times.
