Level 1 - Jumping - Course Designer


This course is a first step into course design.

Course design is one of the most important tasks in the organisation of jumping shows. Good course design helps to develop the sport and is an important part of athletes’ and horses’ education. The course designer has a responsibility towards athletes and horses but also towards spectators, audiences, sponsors and staff. This FEI Campus course provides information that helps to fulfil requirements in regard to course designing and the growing expectations of our sport.

This course is for everyone aspiring to become a course designer and for those who already are but wish to refresh their existing knowledge.
