The facility will be open from 10:00 a.m. and will close at 6:00 p.m.

**You must book in on line before you come to the venue. There are electric gates and if we do not know you are coming there is no means for you to get in! We also have to have the disclaimer ready for you to sign and payment envelopes so that you can deposit them, with your payment, in the receptacle before you go out on the course. These are only put out if we know people are coming. Please respect this, otherwise you may come on a wasted journey and not be able to get in.**
A maximum of 5 riders per hour will be able to book the facility, but you may spend as long as you like on the facility.
Cost: ARC Members £18.00, Non-Members £20.00.
23 October. We regret that after the severe rainfall of last Friday & Saturday and intermittent rainfall since, the ground has become extremely wet and unsafe for riders. We have therefore closed the Cross Country facility until further notice.
SHOW JUMPS – (this facility has now been withdrawn for this year)
A full set of Show Jumps in a flattish grass arena are also available to hire.
Cost: £10 per horse.
It is imperative that you book the facilities before you arrive at Bucklands Farm. You must also read, print off and sign the Disclaimer and bring it with you. There are important rules in the ‘Disclaimer’ about your use of the course. Please hand the disclaimer and your payment to the club representative or leave it in the receptacle provided at the entrance to the trailer park, before you go out on the course. You will not be allowed on the facility if you have not signed the Disclaimer or paid for the facility.
If there is a problem with your booking, Susannah Givons will contact you before the day of your booking.
**When travelling with your lorry, box or trailer to Bucklands Farm, please enter Brantridge Lane from the Handcross end and not from the Staplefield end, since it is very narrow at the Staplefield end.**
