Now available be here
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. We are also not mind readers, so if you didn’t tell us something important we can’t use that information when doing the times.
You may see someone with “better” times than you – the chances are that they have requested something when they entered and we do try to accommodate these requests if we can.
Now they are published they will not be changed unless we have withdrawals.
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.

Stewards & Tack Check
BD stewards will be managing the collecting ring and tack checking at the end of the test. Please make sure you are familiar with the official rules on what is and is not permissible at this show.
BD have an area festival hub and that may be found here – https://www.britishdressage.co.uk/petplan-equine-area-festivals-hub/
The competition will be held in our main outdoor arena and warming up in the indoor arena.
Will be dismounted and held outside the show office approximately 30 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 from the first to the last entry.
Helpers and supporters
Are very welcome to attend the event but please leave dogs behind or in your vehicles as they are not allowed 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 once the close of entries has passed.
