HOWICK

Event Newsflash - 27/03/2018

Sadly, all competition due to run this weekend at Howick has been abandoned.

The site is currently waterlogged and with more rain and some snow 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.

MESSAGE FROM H&H EVENTS LTD

Sadly the rainfall throughout last night has resulted in a waterlogged site preventing us from being able to work on the course and continue set up.

After two site visits in 24 hours the disappointing decision has reluctantly been made to completely abandon all competition for this coming weekend.

Going forward we will be working with BE to find a solution for the future of Howick Horse Trials.

We would like to thank competitors, tradestands, suppliers and our fantastic army of volunteers for their understanding and support.
