  1. Fantastic event! Well organised and friendly people. The arena for the showjumping is a nice big arena with a good surface and the cross-country is a well built fair track. Highly recommend this event

The Last Word...

Dressage was on a surface a little walk away for the International classes. Dressage for the National classes was in closer proximity on the grass. Show jumping also on a surface amongst the trade stands. XC very well built and rode really well. Plenty of space to warm up.
