Design with CrossCountry App

Showcase your courses

"The maps were a really useful tool, and I was surprised at how user friendly they were. Competitors and their connections were universally impressed, and we all feel that this exercise was a massive step forward for our event" Emma Notman, Richmond Horse Trials

Feature your courses in our library and embed direct links to the maps in your own website. They can be viewed on any smartphone, tablet or PC. Click the image below to see how it works. Audio is from British Eventing's High Performance Manager Yogi Breisner. Grassroots BE 100 map link

Promote your sponsors

Look after your VIPs

Put a touch screen monitor in your VIP tent like Sydney International did. Sponsor VIPs love to see their fence in the virtual guided course walk.

"An expert in their pocket" for spectators

Enhance spectator, owner and VIP enjoyment by adding audio from a top rider, coach or the course designer to create a virtual guided course walk. Spectators can find the best jumps to watch, which might cause problems and why, or learn about frangible pins. Those with Apple devices and CrossCountry App have extra information such as minute markers and their location on course at their finger tips.

In their own language

Text and audio can be added in any language. CHIO Aachen in German

Brief Officials

Share CrossCountry App maps with officials, paramedics and volunteers to familiarise them with the cross country course. Ground jury members refer to the course on their iPad during the competition. Technical Delegates (many of whom already use CrossCountry App) extract information for their reports. Pre-event, your course designer and course builder can exchange draft courses by email with internal instructions for building/dressing.

Jump judges can find their fence and feel more involved as they may not get the chance to walk the whole course.

paul tapner tweetAttract riders to your event

Riders love pre-recorded courses. It saves time, especially for competions held all in one day or when they have multiple rides. Naturally they still walk the course but they have a handy reference and "aide memoire". "It's very useful to refresh your memory and have the course plan always handy if someone has a question. Much better than scraps of paper" Irish Olympic rider Mark Kyle.

Help riders prepare

First timers can get very nervous. Newcomer riders at Sydney felt so much better prepared by seeing the course in advance with photos and audio tips from accredited coaches. Super-convenient on their phone.

Sell courses

sell course walksYou can sell courses and virtual course walks through our library to recoup costs or raise money for charity. It's so easy. Just email the course and we do the rest. See example listing

Fence lists and course statistics

The CourseDesigner add-in module creates high quality map images, fence lists, distances and course information for Officials at the touch of a button. Create paper maps on your PC, posters for your VIP tent or stable manager's office and lists for official reports. CourseDesigner is being used with great enthusiasm in Australia, USA, UK and South Africa

Easy to record

recording bramham in a buggyNo time to walk? Zip round the course in a golf buggy as Laura Jennings and Jose Diacono did at Bramham - or even a 4WD. Your course designer can record the track first before fences are even in position. If you have artist drawings for the program you can add those in (or we can do it for you), then substitute dressed jump photos just before competiton starts.

No internet? No problem

You do not need internet to record a course because it is done with the internal GPS of the iPhone.

Spectators and riders downlod pre-recorded courses. Once downloaded, they do not require internet connection to view the course and if they are using CrossCountry App (rather than the Lite version), they will be able to see additional information and add their own photographs, videos, audios and notes. They always experience the same fast performance as they click on the jumps and scroll through pictures.
