Rugs to all section winners 


The intermediate course will be very similar to last year.  It is big and bold to encourage forward riding and would be suitable for a first time intermediate. It will mostly be on the flat other than the hill that goes down to the water fence and will incorporate some of the natural features at Upton. The Novice and BE100 will remain largly unchanged. To ensure the best possible going, the Equivator will be used when and where required.
