Starting Times:


Timetable: This is just a rough guide and is subject to change
Thursday - Arrival
At leisure between 2pm and 7pm. If you plan to arrive outside of these times please advise us on your entry form and call us on the day to confirm with your mobile number.
Friday - Dressage day!
The dressage will consist of short arena tests for 70cm & 80cm classes and long arena tests for the 90cm & 100cm classes. It will be held in our outdoor arena (weather dependant). The warm up will be marked and there will be a steward on hand to answer any queries. Please make sure you are warmed up in plenty time for your dressage slot! The cross country will be available to walk in the afternoon/ early evening and guided course walks from an international event rider will be taking place. Times for these will be advertised on the day. In the evening all riders are invited to a welcome party with some prosecco and canapes to be held in our restaurant. We will also be serving our normal menu and our fully stocked bar will be open.
Saturday - Cross Country day!
The cross country course will be designed and build by International designer Angus Smales. All jumps are solid and built to British Eventing standards. The course will be longer than a standard one day course so care must be taken to ensure that both the horse and rider have undertaken sufficient fitness work to avoid any injuries or undue stress! Due to our event (including cross country course) being completely on surface there is no risk of bad ground! In the evening we will be holding a hog roast (or similar) in our restaurant area. All competitors will receive a complimentary ticket and additional tickets are available to be purchased in advance.
Sunday - Showjumping
A trot up will be held on Sunday morning (time to be confirmed) infront of the Ground Jury to ensure that the horses are fit and well after a day’s cross country. Make sure to bring your finery as there will be a prize for best dressed, all horses should be plaited and well turned out. Following on from this the showjumping will begin for each class in reverse order (so the leader after cross country will jump last). The course will be designed by a British Show jumping course designer and will be up to height. There will be a mounted prize giving at the conclusion of each class.
