View Full Version : Southern Eighths Farm XC

Can anyone tell me about their XC- specifically for a horse going prelim. I know they just added a sunken road. I'm fine practicing prelim questions at a lower height, but its quite a haul and I'd like to make sure its worth my while before going down there. Anyone been there?

They have a ton of (beautiful) portables, varied terrain, and well built water, ditches, banks. In the past they have been willing to set things in advance to suit a group. Probably worth calling to check what is set and make specific requests. They certainly have the capacity to set Prelim and up questions, but better to call than to be disappointed.

Southern Eights is a great place! It is geared towards the lower levels though. So they probably won't have enough to challenge a solid prelim horse - unless you call them and ask them to set up some complexes for you.

We've got a group going to the Gibbes farm in SC soon, if you'd like to join us! They have lots of upper level stuff.
