Exciting news!! Our cross-country course is in the process of being remodeled. We will have visual updates as we continue to progress for the 2019 Horse Trial season. Here are just a few examples!
Palmer River is especially proud of its cross-country course, which formerly was the host of an annual sanctioned event. The course is being carefully redesigned, and now features a variety of challenges including banks, drops, open ditches and a water crossing. All jumps are designed to be horse-friendly but are also laid out in a way which will challenge the speed, boldness, endurance, and jumping ability of the horse and test the skill of the rider. The jumps range in height from 2′ to 3’3″.
