Event Newsflash - 03/04/2018

Unfortunately, all competition due to run this weekend (7th & 8th April) at South of England (1) has been abandoned.

The site is currently waterlogged and with more rain forecast, there is no chance that the ground will recover in time for the weekend. As there is so much standing water, preparations on site cannot be completed.

We are currently looking at options for relocation of the BE100 u18 and ONu18 classes and will publish this news once the arrangements have been made.

Event Status - Cancelled

OIu21 - Dressage test should be Int Dr Test 118
