Cross Country Schooling

The cross-country course is OPEN for schooling.

Pre-booking required. Text 085 1599642.  


The cross country course at Killossery is the schooling venue of choice for riders and competitors of all abilities, from pony clubbers and riding club members to international eventers.

No other schooling venue in the country has the variety of fences that are on offer at Killossery, with fences ranging from 70cm and baby banks and ditches, to ‘big boy’ drops and skinnies that would challenge a 3-star eventer.

From logs and banks and ditches, to skinnies, combinations and water fences, the course is changed regularly, so there is always something new to see and a different challenge to face. And if you require a particular schooling challenge set up, give us a call and we will see what we can do.

Open 7 days a week, from early until late (weather permitting). The course is available for group pre-booking and group discounts are available.

€25 Euro per horse. Text to book: 085-1599642. Please note we only take bookings by text message to this number – no phone calls or facebook messages please!
