Ledyard Farm provides riders the opportunity to school our unique cross-country course, designed especially for the eventers. Captain Mark Phillips designed many "telescopic" jumps such as the trakehner, Weldon's Wall, and a ditch, which progress from the Novice to Intermediate levels. Our course also offers a beautiful step jump, water complex, and many portable fences that can be arranged around existing jumps.
