An exciting new JumpCross site has been developed in the idyllic North Cornwall countryside.
The site at Treroosal Farm, St Teath, Bodmin includes a wide range of natural features including water crossings, undulating pasture, hills and tree lined landscapes.
Treeroosal Farm JumpCross will launch on Saturday, August 25 with an open day and training opportunity.
This new venture is backed by former show jumper, Jenna Sleeman and will form part of the family farm.
Said Jenna: “We are very much looking forward to developing the sport of JumpCross throughout North Cornwall.
“It is a brilliant sport, whether wanting to use JumpCross purely as a training medium or looking to take part in JumpCross competitions.
“The JumpCross site is the first of a number of new developments for Treroosal Farm which will eventually also include a livery yard.”
Robin Dunlop of JumpCross added: “JumpCross is a unique sport that gives rider’s the excitement of galloping cross-country without the anxiety of tackling fixed obstacles.
“Positioned to offer various challenges, the jumps can be up or downhill, over ditches or in and out of water and the sport requires proper cross-country terrain.
"We developed JumpCross because we wanted to take away the worry of riding over fixed fences and to get riders to concentrate on how they were riding the horse across the terrain.
“In JumpCross training sessions the fence height can be altered to suit the individual, helping riders progress whatever their ability.
“The sport also has a lot to offer the more experienced rider, it can be quite technical dependent on the individual course design and helps improve accuracy, rhythm, balance and overall synergy of horse and rider.”
