Major Boost for British Eventing Young Horse Championship at Osberton International Horse Trials
A new look British Eventing Young Horse Championship will take centre stage at this year’s Osberton International Horse Trials.
Running from September 29 to October 3, on the Osberton Estate, the event will host the Four-year-old Showcase, Five-year-old CCI1*, Six and Seven-year-old CCIS 2* and 3*.
The Four-year-old Showcase will be held as the feature class on the Thursday and includes a new dressage test, with the showjumping and cross-country all in one arena incorporating a water jump, bank and ditch while the Five-year-old takes place at CCI1* level for the first time.
With the aim of bringing the championships format together the dressage for the Five, Six and Seven-year-olds will run on the Thursday, with cross-country taking place on Friday, rounding off with the show jumping for all three age groups building to a fitting reverse order climax on the Saturday.
The cross-country for the Young Horse Championships will run on the very best ground with the course looking in pristine condition and allowing the country’s leading contenders to gallop across the fantastic Osberton parkland.
Said Stuart Buntine of organiser BEDE Events: “The British Eventing Young Horse Championships really are a highlight in the calendar.
“For 2021 we have adapted the timetable allowing these talented stars of the future to be the first on the cross-country course over the event.
“The four sections provide a fantastic opportunity for a title sponsor to gain maximum awareness over the three days when the main focus will be these much sought after championships.
“By having the dressage, cross-country and showjumping running on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday for the Five, Six and Seven-year-old Championships this will provide a brilliant atmosphere as we countdown to find the worthy champion in each section.”
