Event Newsflash - 27/03/2017

Burgham National Classes Saturday 25 March 2017 **Important Notice – Saturday national classes cancelled** The team at Burgham have been working flat out, in incredibly difficult weather conditions, to try and keep the event running. Today is sunshine and ground is drying, and in an effort to preserve the ground at the main site we have moved today’s FEI dressage to Alnwick Ford Equestrian where we will also show jump the FEI classes in the morning. The intention is to start x-c for these classes at approximately 1300. Please check the website for revised times which will be available as soon as possible. In order to give the ground as much time as possible, to improve enough to run the maximum amount of horses, British Eventing and Burgham Horse Trials has REALLY regrettably had to make the decision to cancel all national classes scheduled to run tomorrow, Saturday. A decision on the Sunday classes will be made by 1000 on Saturday. At the moment we are optimistic of running Sunday as scheduled.

Event Status - Cancelled
