Our long running Winter Series is back this Sunday 27th October for its 13th year, open to ALL AGES, and we have an improved Arena surface, particularly suitable for jumping. Benefit from an all-round professional Show Jumping experience, but in a relaxed, friendly, encouraging atmosphere with a Grand Finale in March 2020.

 

We are delighted to be back for a 13th year of our Winter Series Show Jumping Championships, and with a new improved Arena surface too!  Held at our Indoor Arena, West Fenton, the monthly events kick off this Sunday 27th October – click here view our October Schedule and Equine Flu ‘Pony Passport’ requirements– with the Final in March 2020. With a cozy Viewing Gallery and an all day cafe, your support crew can keep warm while you’re in action.  Spectators are welcome, free entry!

 

As Entry-On-The-Day only events, with affordable fees at just £6 per Class the events are accessible to all.  Plus, all proceeds go to support the work of registered charity Muirfield Riding Therapy, a member group of Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA).

 

Our 6-event Show Jumping Championships is aimed at riders, horses and ponies of ALL AGES, from lead rein wobblies to adults, but especially less experienced.  Each event is included in the points system for the overall Winter Series and all points earned will count towards your final total.  You’re welcome to just drop in and join us for an event, no need to commit to all 6 in the Series.
