High Praise for Horseheath's First Unaffiliated One Day Event - May 2021
To make up for all the competition opportunities lost during the lockdown, Horseheath decided to add a new date to the calendar for an unaffiliated event that ran on Sunday 2nd May - and hot on the heels of the British Eventing Horse Trials that took place at Horseheath the weekend before.
With classes from Pre-Intro 80cm to Pre-Novice 100cm, the 250 riders that attended had the opportunity to experience the challenges and thrills of Horseheath's first-class BE cross country course - as designed by British Eventing Accredited Coach and Course Designer Tina Ure of Ely Eventing centre and built by BE Course Builder David Carpenter and his team.
Having worked hard to prepare the ground for the BE Horse Trails the week prior, Horseheath's ground care team was keen to maintain the footing for their Unaffiliated competitors, as best they could, and continued to water key areas with the last of their reservoir supplies. Their efforts were greatly appreciated by many of the competitors on the day.
"Many thanks for a great event – so friendly and great ground preparation. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
"Well done, everyone, and thank you Horseheath Horse Trials for a great day. We really appreciated all your efforts."
"A brilliant day. Thank you for all your efforts in making the ground good – a fantastic course - and so well organised!"
"Thank you for putting in so much effort, even for the UA event! It is so appreciated and of so much benefit to our young horses.”
The British Eventing and Unaffiliated Horse Trails at Horseheath would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and dedicated team of volunteers. Our sincere thanks go to everyone involved in making eventing at Horseheath such a positive experience for competitors of all ages and abilities. We look forward to welcoming everyone back again in 2022.
