Elysian Hills Starter Horse Trial, Combined Test and Dressage
Elysian Hills Starter Horse Trials are the perfect venue for a green horse, green rider or rider/horse moving up to the next level. We provide a supportive, fun and safe environment for all levels. Our horse trials are run in a very relaxed atmosphere. Entries are limited to provide a more relaxed and flexible venue.
Dressage tests are held in a sand outdoor arena (warm up in an indoor arena). Stadium is held in a large stone dust arena. Our stadium courses include banks, ditches and changes in terrain (appropriate for each level). Cross Country is held on open, rolling fields which include a vast assortment of solid natural obstacles, banks, ditches and two water jumps.
We have added several new obstacles and combinations this Spring!!
Elysian Hills Starter Horse Trial entries are flexible. Participants may enter all three phases ($95), dressage and stadium only ($75), stadium and cross country only ($75) and dressage only ($35 per test).
We offer all jumping participants (stadium and cross country) a second trip around at No Additional Cost.
