Additional Event Information
A short c.4.5 mile loop from Carsington Water using part of the reservoir trail and taking in the pretty village of Hognaston. This is an ideal route for youngsters or horses lacking fitness for a longer ride. There are a few things for novice horses to experience such as a ford, sheep and a little bit of road. There are options for a canter either on a more enclosed track or to try this in a more open space. Equally these can be avoided with surfaced tracks available right round.
