XC Course Hire

XC schooling 7

Norton Disney offers excellent facilities including an extensive range of cross-country jumps across our two very large fields, ranging in height from 80 cm up to Novice level at 1.10m, including an inviting water complex.

All fences are built by Joe to BE regulations and include brushes, roll-tops, corners, skinny fences and open ditches. Every fence is brought in over the winter, refurbished and put out in a new location for the next season so the course constantly changes.

The free-draining land is grazed by sheep over the winter to support excellent going.


We offer lots of different, practical and user-friendly fences, cleverly placed and linked in a way that suits all types and level of horse, and allows the rider to establish a good rhythm.

Our fences mimic situations and tests that found at Horse Trials at all levels, making them an ideal facility for riders, trainers and coaches alike. Our course is often used for training by top eventers.

We also have a 45 x 25m outdoor arena with all-weather surface…..

Coming in 2017:
We’re planning to incorporate intermediate XC fences for 2* & 3* training.
Watch this space!



To hire the cross-country course is £25 per horse. We accept cash and cheques (payable to “Norton Disney Equestrian Ltd“) and we manage bookings to avoid over-crowding on the course.

To book please ring or text Ali on 07946 374158 or send a message via Facebook.

When we’re open

The cross country course is open for schooling from February through to October but is closed prior to our own BE Horse Trials and occasionally through the year for ground maintenance, fence changes and improvements.

The XC course is closed on Monday 21st March 2016 until Monday 11th April, in order for us to ensure our going is beautiful for the Norton Disney Horse Trials :-) Weather permitting, the course will re-open on Monday 11th April for post-event course hire.

The XC course will be closed again from Monday 3rd October for our Autumn horse trials. Again, if the going is good and the weather holds, the course will be available for one day only on Monday 24th October, with fully-flagged tracks. The course will then be closed until February 2017.
