Withington cancelled

The organising team at Withington Manor International, 1-2 May have made the difficult decision to cancel their event on account of the continued current uncertainty due to the impact of Covid-19.

Event Organisers Bruno and Fiona Brenninkmeijer-McKenzie commented, “This is deeply disappointing for our small 3-man team that prepares the Estate for the Horse Trials as the Event usually marks the transition into another agricultural year.

“We also recognise that our decision will have an effect upon our loyal contractors, competitors, Sponsors and Volunteers without whom we are not in a position to present Withington in the best possible light year after year.  All have been flexible in their offers of help this year for which we are most grateful.  Hopefully by making this decision now this will allow sufficient time for some to make alternative arrangements.

“We are looking forward to 2022 where we can once again deliver the competition to our usual standard.”
