Course Designing

What do I do with myself when the polo season has wrapped up?  I go course designing.  Next month I shall be designing the tracks at the CSI-W World Cup at Thai Polo & Equestrian Club, and also at the National Horse Show at the Selangor Turf Club Equestrian Centre.

As an FEI Level 3 course designer, it is good to keep my eye in, so to speak. I follow the best showjumping on YouTube and other media to keep up with the trends, and keep my mind open for design ideas.

I am also an FEI Level 1 course presenter on course designing.  I am offfering a 2-day seminar at the National Horse Show for anyone interested in course designing.  In fact, the course is relevant to any show jumper.

As a course designer, I’ve been designing internationally for 24 years, and CSI shows since 2002, including the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar.  In addition to designing tracks, I’ve also made a lot of fences that have been used in the FEI World Cup Final, Youth Olympic Games, KL Grand Prix and World Cup shows.
