Event Newsflash - 14/07/2018

Entries Update 14/7/18

No entries have been balloted and we are still accepting entries into all classes. The BE100 - Sunday is almost full and any further entries will be wait-listed. There are still spaces available in the BE100 - Saturday.

All areas will be equivated - warm up and arenas, and sand will be placed on necessary landings. The majority of the site has plenty of grass and anywhere that hasn't will be heavily equivated. All reasonable things will be done to present the best ground.

Preparations are going well. The ground is firm - as it is everywhere - but we already have 25 tonnes of sand, the equivator is booked and I will springtine harrow, which improves the equivating. All is on old turf and I am using area for the cross country that has not been used before.

All courses are flowing and up to height and are built of substantial timber and use the natural undulations of the parkland terrain, creating a good variety of interesting feature fences. There are alternatives where it is deemed necessary on all courses and will be "fair tests" for both first time and experienced horses and riders. The ground in all phases, including warm up areas, will be worked on using a springtine harrows and the BE Equivator, if necessary.
