Meet Jay Hambly:
- FEI “I” International Cross Country Course Designer
- International Cross Country Course Builder
- Equine Canada course adviser and designer
- Advanced Level Event Rider
- Achieved “A” Level in Pony Club
We are pleased to have Canadian Jay Hambly as course designer for Foshay International 2018. Jay has recently been named to a part of the cross country course building team for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and has also held the title of course builder for such events as the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, 2013 Central American Games and the 2003 FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC). Along with course building, Jay is also an FEI International “I” course designer. That combined with his personal competition experience gives him a well-rounded perspective for building.
Although it is currently buried under a solid Canadian layer of snow and ice, Jay got started on scoping out what will be our Introductory and CC1* event tracks before the snow flew. The Foshay International cross country course will be home to signature fences such as our Fort Jemseg combination, inspired by the undiscovered ruins of Fort Jemseg, rumored to be buried at this very site. We will also be using beautiful fallen trees from hurricane Arthur as natural fences on course, and an old stone foundation as another signature fence.
Although our on-site building has been put on hold until spring, we are hard at work behind the scenes building portable fences, and planning what will be a course like no other along the picturesque river in Lowe Jemseg.
Only 7 hours from Boston and nestled on the river’s edge in beautiful Jemseg New Brunswick, Foshay International is one of a kind- come see for yourself!
