So, April 2020, our Covid statement: things aren't great for us right now. No courses to build, little in the way of groundworks to do, and no way of travelling far under lockdown. BUT- we are available for work!! We can turn out hands to all sorts (please browse our website), we can do social distancing (we have been avoiding people for years), and now might now be a good time to commission those portables, that water jump, or bespoke chainsaw-carved animal or garden furniture youve been hankering after? Please get in touch!

Based in Oxfordshire, David Evans and his team of experienced coursebuilders travel nationally and internationally to build and design cross country courses.


As of March 2020 they were busy preparing for the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo. All that has changed now though. Just  now, the 'new normal' doesnt look much like international horse traials are going to be top of the list of public events to return.

In the meantime, here's our website:

David and his dedicated team, headed up by Carl Fletcher and Mike Pope, build for designers including Captain Mark Phillips, Ian Stark, and Mike Etherington Smith.

From designing the cross country track and jumps, landscaping and groundworks to installing and dressing portables and brush fences, then making sure everything goes to plan on the day, David, Mike and Carl are the experts!

Evansjumps build many high status cross country courses including at international horse trials such as Chatsworth, Bramham, Luhmulen and Blenheim Palace.

David Evans' trademark log carvings, large and small, range from horse heads, dogs, ducks and owls, to giant swans, bears and mighty dragons.
