The courses are designed by Mogie Bearden-Muller with
consultation from Captain Mark Phillips. They were built by Bert Wood, who also builds
Woodside, Rebecca Farms, and Galway, so the courses will look familiar and will be good
schooling for those competitions.
Efforts are designed to be inviting at each level, so they are appropriate for
move-up or confidence building at that level. Each type of obstacle is represented at
many levels so the horse can learn the basic idea and then easily move up to the next
Newly constructed courses were completed in Fall 2007. Several improvements are made
yearly, reflecting current competition challenges.
We offer full regulation courses at Beginner Novice, Novice, Training, and
Preliminary. We also have several "Grasshopper" and Intermediate efforts. Fun for
