The Good news is we can now reopen our cross country course as of this Saturday 16th May.

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) statement https://www.britishequestrian.org.uk/news/british-equestrian-s-stance-on-riding-and-coaching-reviewed,  has given us further details following the Government's statement last weekend.

"Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors. They may meet with one other from outside their household, which may be a coach or other participant, all with the proviso that the appropriate social distancing and hygiene practices are in place. Those involved in travelling to or from a venue must all be from the same household. Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively."

It also states that venues and coaches should “conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the full public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively”

We have now reviewed our procedures for the hire of our cross country course and for the time being in order to remove the need for face to face contact, all bookings for the cross country hire will be done on line which will include the agreement to our hire terms and conditions disclaimer.  Two hourly Slots are available and are limited in numbers.  Social distancing must be maintained at all times whilst using the course and in order to avoid close contact.


PLEASE NOTE That the show jumps will not be available for hire and The toilet facilities will remain closed until further notice.


The Chiddingfold PC event on June 7th is unfortunately cancelled though we are trying to arrange another date later in the season.


Dates for 2020 competitions are available Click here Please call us 01730 821508 or email info@fair-oak.co.uk if you wish to contact us.


Welcome to the Fair Oak Cross Country Course at Rogate in West Sussex UK.  The course is built over 55 acres of traditional grassland on a sandy soil so the going is generally very good.  The course has been greatly modified over the last few years to provide a wide variety of jumps at various heights 55cm (1ft 9") through to 100cm (3ft 3") and is used by Pony Clubs and Riding Clubs between April through October as well as for our own events.  Individual Schooling is available see details here.  New jumps are added each year and including the lower field has a full course length up to 2400 metres and over 180 obstacles.
