    I love this event. It’s got a great atmosphere with lots going on. The course is lovely and they always try their best to make the ground as perfect as possible. Everything is all quite close so you don’t have to walk miles which is a bonus!

The Last Word...

One of my favourite events of the season with a real International feel for the 1* and 2*. There is a lovely flat area for dressage and two separate showjumping areas amongst the shops for National and International. The cross country is slightly uphill but bold and flowing with good ground.
