>> Help the UNH XC course! The UNH horse trials is one of the oldest events in New England. For over 40 years, it has been running on the UNH campus. Area I competitors have been starting and ending their seasons at UNH Horse Trials, often using the fall trials after a season at one level as a testing ground for going up a level in their competition. Pony Clubs, Hunt clubs, dressage shows, camps, clinics and many of us individually use the UNH course frequently because of its convenient location and accessible layout. It’s vital part of our collective passion.

As with all public institutions, UNH is under budgetary pressure. The cross-country course, designed and built by the talented UNH alumnus Jim Gornall, is in need of updating and repair. Jim has been generous with his time and energy, frequently donating his time to help UNH.

It is time to both update and upgrade the cross country course, to include building an elementary level course to appeal to and attract even more competitors to the wonderful UNH campus and the equine sports we all love. The Friends of UNH Cross Country have organized to raise upwards of $50,000 to achieve this goal. Please consider making a donation today - you can donate two ways:
