Hi there,

I am considering heading to Plantation Field H.T. but was wondering what people think about it. I would be going out Novice for the first recognized event of the season.

Anyone have opinions on the course? I know the USEA listing says "early season courses."

Just wondering what experiences people have had there.

Thank you!

rain, snow, rain, rain, rain.....

Kidding aside, it is quite a nice season opener. The courses are definitely on the easy side for the level at all levels, but the weather at that time of year is iffy as is the footing (last year, we cancelled half way through Saturday and there was no xc). There is also a lot of terrain, so you may want to consider whether you feel your horse is fit enough to deal with the hills. Novice will run at 350 m/m so you won't have to run super fast over the hills.
