Well known course designer Tremaine Cooper will create a different schooling setup for each Open Schooling week so that horses and riders have the opportunity to school over different types of fences and terrain.  Themes have been chosen for each week.  January’s theme will be “Coffins and Corners,” February will focus on “Trakehners and Turning Combinations,” and March will be “Rolling Terrain and Narrows.” No matter what your level, there will be opportunities for everyone to school and improve. The water jump will always be filled and open to ride, as will the ditches, steps and straight-forward galloping fences.   Southern Eighths
