Cross Country Course
Our newly renovated Cross Country Course will be officially opened in June 2023. The new course accommodates official events from 45cm up to 105cm (1 Star) heights.
We are so thankful for the support we have had from the Queensland Government's Active Gameday grants - Nikki Boyd MP, RACQ Foundations Community Grants Program, Queensland Government's Sport & Recreation Disaster Recovery, Federal Government's Planting Trees for the Queens Jubilee - Peter Dutton MP and the Moreton Bay Regional Council - Cr Darren Grimwade.
The cross country jumping course as is an integral part of SGVPC. Our course winds through natural bushland with ascending and descending landscapes. This type of terrain tests rider and horse combinations, while also providing an exhilarating experience.
Our jump obstacles include all those that might be found if riding across the countryside, including water, trees, logs, ditches, and banks incorporated into the natural terrain while also including multiple options/heights to accommodate different ability levels.
The Course is available for use by members or can be hired by non-members. Hire fees are to be paid to the SGVPC and waivers and horse health declarations must be provided for all non-member riders. Please contact the committee for further information. The Club also holds clinics, open training days and competitions during the year.
