Event Information


INTERNET entries will be accepted on WITHDRAWALS to the Entries Secretary as soon as you know you are unable to compete and preferably by Tuesday 27 February at 6pm.

REFUND POLICY - 100% refund for withdrawals before ballot date. Thereafter entries that are replaced will receive a full refund subject to a £14.40 administration charge. If the event is oversubscribed a wait list will be held.

STARTING TIMES are available from 6pm on Thursday 1st March on


Limited stabling is available on site £25 per stable per night. Please bring your own bedding or purchase it from Moreton Equestrian Centre on arrival. Refunds will be given should the event be cancelled, book with the Entries Secretary.


Lower limit prize money will be awarded for all sections from BE90 upwards.  Prizes in kind for BE80(T).


We have 10 new fences for 2018. The BE80(T) and BE90 courses are good first timers while the BE100 and Novice are up to height and while not overly technical are bold and attacking courses. Old pasture, with a combination of permanent and portable fences. The reseeding of the dressage arenas and their warm-up has given us a larger, high-quality area. SJ is on a surface.


Hot and cold food available throughout the event. Local B&Bs available. Please email organisers for information.


In case of ABANDONMENT please phone 07880973984. 
DOGS must be kept on leads at all times. ENTRANCE POLICY - All visitors welcome.
