If you’ve ever dreamed of jumping your horse over train cars, dinosaurs, sea dragons or mountains, then Rebecca Farm in USEA Area VII is a must-ride destination for you! The fences here are mind-blowingly creative with fabulous artistry; the crew at Rebecca has been hard at work since early July adding decorations and finishing touches to the cross-country courses. The footing looks great, and the panoramic blue sky mountain views aren’t too shabby either.
This year, the CIC3* cross-country course designed by Ian Stark has 24 numbered questions over 3,990 meters with an optimum time of 7 minutes. The most interesting questions use the natural terrain to add difficulty, such as an angled downhill approach to a rail to corner combo at 18AB in the second water.
Ian led a course walk of his track earlier in the week, which we caught on video in this post. See the gallery below for fence-by-fence pictures of this one-of-a-kind Advanced track.
And there’s big news for all you Area VII cross-country fans out there: Jerome Broussard announced on Wednesday that Rebecca Farm will host its first CCI3* in 2015! Stay tuned to Rebecca Farm this weekend and beyond for top notch cross-country action.
