Event Newsflash - 11/04/2018

All competition that was due to run at Ascott Under Wychwood (1) 14th-15th April has unfortunately been abandoned following this afternoon’s site inspection.

We are very grateful to the Organisers and BE Officials for their efforts but unfortunately the ground is just too wet. With the ground in its current condition, and taking into account the forecast, the preparations on cannot be completed and the footing will not improve in time for the weekend.

Following the sale of Crown Farm in 2017 we built 45 new cross country fences and we will be adding to that collection this year.  The view remains the same and over 90% of the course can be viewed from the water jump, which makes it an ideal event for supporters to watch!  Our reputation as a happy, friendly event is very important to us and we aim to continue this.  Agrivators will be used on all areas including dressage and show jumping if felt necessary.
