Preparations are well underway here at Bicton Arena for our first International Horse Trials next month. The Rathbones Main Arena (see below) is looking in tip top condition and will provide a unique opportunity for CIC** combinations to gain experience competing in such an atmospheric arena.
The Main Parkland has not been used since last year and after extensive ground preparation is set to provide excellent going underfoot.
Stabling is being offered at a very competitive price of just £50 for the duration of the event.
Bicton Arena is excited to announce that Marlborough Events will be at attendance at their events throughout 2015. Most famously known for running ‘The Outside Chance Bar’ at Badminton Horse Trials and Cheltenham Racecourse, they will now be open throughout the Bicton Arena International Horse Trials. With the best views of the main arena and cross-country course and with both an outdoor and indoor bar, whatever the weather, ‘The Tackroom’ will be the place to go for a relaxing drink.
The Tackroom will be open from 8.30am every day until late. Whether you are looking for a magnum of Pol Roger, a refreshing pint of Otter Ale, a jug of Pimms or a warming cup of tea, The Tackroom will be offering a full bar throughout the day. Saturday night will be party night. All riders, owners and grooms will be invited for a free pint and Hog Roast. Friends and connections are also welcome to attend, and a fun night is guaranteed to be had by all.
Marlborough Events are kindly giving a bottle of Champagne to the winning riders of the following sections:
