oh ok, ill have to do a bit more research then about our zone.
The only XC course i know of in the area is the one i mentioned earlier, the one at the riding school. As far as i know none of the pony clubs use it, but i could be wrong. I have a friend in one of the clubs, ill ask.
Im just out of Armidale, in the New England area. Its about, an hour north-ish from Tamworth.
I know theres heaps of events at Scone and Quirindi, I dont really want to travel that far atm though, especially just starting out and my parents would have to help with the travelling (I wont have a license to tow until next march, and even then i would have to borrow the float and car (mines nowhere near suitable to tow!) which is rather inconvenient for them obviously.)
But thanks, i'll look into the local stuff a bit more and see what i can find
