Please note that we have done our very best to accommodate every request, however, if 95% of the class wish to go late it is inevitable that this is impossible to action.
This is a busy show so please be aware of the time – your allocate time is to be going down the centre line so please help the running of the event by being ready.
Due to time constraints it is NOT possible to have one before every class. Times are as follows
FRIDAY – 07:00 – 07:16 and 14:12 – 14:28
SATURDAY – 07:32 – 08:04 and 12:36 – 13:00
SUNDAY – 07:00 – 07:16, 11:40 – 11:56 and 13:56 – 14:12
All arena walks must be mounted and you must be wearing your bridle numbers. This is in walk only and under the supervision of a steward or member of the Kingswood team.
Stewards & Tack Check
Two BD stewards will be managing the collecting ring and tack checking at the end of the test
The competition will be held in our main outdoor arena and warming up in the secondary outdoor arena.
Will be dismounted and held outside the show office approximately 15 minutes after the last entry in every class. A list of these times will be posted on the notice board at the show.
Our cafe will be open for this event. As it is an indoor space and we will still be prior to 19th July we must insist that masks are worn when inside the building.
Helpers and supporters
Are very welcome – please continue to observe physical distancing from people not in your group and use the hand sanitiser stations provided around the centre.
This is always an awkward subject – but BD Rule 62a makes the position quite clear.
No refunds, regardless of reason, will be offered to anyone withdrawing from this competition.
