Organising a Course Walk

As the popularity of Tattersalls International Horse Trials and Country Fair grows, the number of people wishing to host course walks continues to increase. As so many pairs of feet walk on the course, this causes ground compaction resulting in long-term damage and reducing the effectiveness of irrigation which is essential in providing good going for the competitors at Tattersalls.

Tattersalls are happy for the ‘Leader’ to walk on the cross country track, but request that they instruct their party to remain outside the track and rope.

All course walks must be pre-booked. If you wish to hold a course walk please pre book a time slot with the Tattersalls team. For information email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
