Cross Country Schooling
Our cross country field is about 60 acres of lush grass on undulating terrain. The course was designed by Tremaine Cooper and built by Mark Salser, Trav Schick and Joe Stylos. The course can easily teach a young horse or inexperienced rider the basics of cross country jumping over small logs that are moved in a variety of places every few weeks. We have many Beginner Novice through Training level jumps that reflect many of the tricky and expected fences that are seen at national events.
Our footing is something that we work on every week! No moles anywhere and the course is rolled flat every spring. You can count on good footing for your fun experience! The courses are changed every two weeks throughout the season for fun options and best footing on take-off and landings. Our footing is sandy loam soil that is rideable from March through October.
In order to jump the cross country course you must:
Have an experienced trainer with you for coaching. All riders must sign one release form per year and parents must sign for minors. All trainers must have Polestar Farms Inc as a named insured on their policies.
