Every second Thursday is show-jumping day!
The course will be set-up from 1.30pm and available for clear rounds until 5.30pm. Participants can set the jumps at whatever height they wish. The cost will be £10 per horse for club members and £12 per horse for non-members, payable in advance to one of the West Kype team. Warm up will be available in the adjoining floodlit outdoor school. Rather than set a cost per round we have set a cost per horse to come and have a reasonable play around the jumps as we understand that sometimes you just have to play it by ear ! We trust this will not be abused.
