Whilst we wait for x/country competition courses to be developed on the new Berry Equestrian Centre we conduct regular eventing clinics with highly qualified, experienced coaches as well as the very popular Derby Days.
Derby Days are a whole lot of fun. They comprise of a jumping course made up of show jumps and cross country fences over a distance of approximately 1,200m, 12 jumps in total. They are a fabulous introduction to riding a x/country course! Great for inexperienced riders and horses.
Riders ride a shortened show jumping course, followed by a gallop (or at a more comfortable speed – your choice) and then around the x/country course with another gallop to finish. Berry Riding Club has a good range of mobile x/country jumps including logs, roll tops, a gate, an apex, a church, log rolls, hay feeder, pheasant feeder just to name a few. Some are small for beginners, some trickier, and some higher for those who are more confident. We are able to provide a variety of courses.
- Riders have a choice of 4 competition heights: 1) 30-45cm, 2) 45-60cm, 3) 60-75cm or 4) 75-90cm and can ride the same height twice. Some jumps will be at the highest height in each competition class.
- At our Derby Days ribbons are awarded to 5th place.
- All riders must wear a back protector and be either a member of BRC or the EA.
- Cost: only $10 / round for BRC members. A maximum of 2 rounds per horse.
- You’ll want to have 2 rounds because it’s so much fun!
