BICTON’S OCTOBER HORSE TRIALS HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

After a successful return to competition at the beginning of July, Bicton Arena Manager Helen West and her team are already looking ahead to the October British Eventing Horse Trials, 22 – 25 October, which has welcomed the addition of the CCI3*-L to its schedule. 

With classes starting at BE100 and spanning right through to CCI3*S and CCI3*-L, the team will prepare to welcome in the region of 750 competitors to what will be the final British Eventing competition of the 2020 season. 

This will mean Bicton International Horse Trials will have the following classes on offer:

  • CCI3*-L
  • CCI3*-S
  • CCI2*-L
  • CCI2*-S
  • Novice
  • BE100 3DE (long format)
  • BE100

 
“Although this year has proved to be testing in many ways it feels fitting that we can round off the season in fine style. The schedule of competition accommodates for amateur riders right through to professionals who have further goals in mind. The inclusion of the CCI3*-L provides a vital opportunity for combinations to gain qualifications for the 2021 season and the BE100 3 Day is a highlight for many amateurs who have all missed out this season,” commented Helen West.

The BE100 3 Day offers riders the chance to compete as they would at an international event as the competition takes place over three days with cross country being the last phase. They will also undertake the Steeplechase and Road and Tracks sections as well as a trot up. The unique competition is always a firm favourite amongst the amateur riders finishing the season on a high.

Entries will open on 14 September, stay up to date here: https://bit.ly/2CQyxOZ
