Guide to Cross Country Course Design 

This Guide is not just for course designers but is intended to support all Officials in understanding the cross country test and design of cross country courses. It is not a rule book nor is it a stand-alone document, rather it is to be used as a supplementary document alongside the official ESNZ Eventing documents and the ESNZ Eventing Officials Education programme.     

Guide for Cross Country Judges

At all National Short format events there is a Chief Cross Country Judge, plus one or two Assistant Cross Country Judges.  These officials make up the Ground Jury for the event and they are in charge of the event, while it is in progress, and all final judgement decisions will be made by them.  

This guide outlines the role and its responsibilities.
