Scotts offers boost for first time Three Day Eventers

If you’re taking the leap and moving up to CCI1* or CCI2* level this summer, then BE and Scotts of Thrapston have got the perfect motivational boost for you.

Leading luxury stable manufacturer, Scotts of Thrapston, is sponsoring the BE course walks at CCI1* and CCI2* events this year, and wants to partner up with riders planning to enter for the first time at this level. 

Head to Houghton

Entries are now open for Houghton International in Norfolk (28 – 31 May) where the inaugural Scotts of Thrapston Course Walk season kicks off. Numerous course walks will be taken throughout the event by well-known BE Accredited Coaches Caroline Moore and Christie Wright as well as the British Nations Cup Team Manager, Philip Surl.
