Eventing at Larkhill Equestrian
at the Larkhill Equestrian site takes place around the wonderfully
Larkhill Royal Artillery race course. The cross-country course is
situated inside the point-to-point course, with show jumping and
dressage situated within the immediate vicinity and outside the course.
the ground at Larkhill is exceptional.
The cross-country track is a
strong galloping course offering excellent going throughout the season
and provides the minimum
chance of cancellation due to bad weather. The ground is varied with
some steep inclines that will test fitness of both horse and rider. The
excellent going in a natural amphitheatre means that the course is
challenging and exciting for competitors and easy
to spectate from a number of vantage points. We believe it is one of
the premier courses in the South West. Dressage and show jumping are
available on large well maintained areas close by.
eventing facility is designed and built to meet BE standards by our
outstanding course builder John Hoare. The site can be booked for
events, cross country schooling and
clinics and currently hosts events run by
British Eventing, Bourne Valley Riding Club, Tedworth Hunt, Royal Artillery Pony Club and the
The Larkhill Equestrian Committee

Larkhill - home of the Royal Artillery
Royal Regiment of Artillery was formed in 1716. Its Regimental Home
was Woolwich until 2007 when it moved to Larkhill. Larkhill has been
synonymous with artillery training
since 1897 and is now very much at the heart of today's Royal Regiment
of Artillery. The Royal Artillery is very proud of its equestrian
heritage and facilities at Larkhill, being the only serving regiment
with such an equestrian facility as Larkhill.'
