A new BE Affiliated Event joins the calendar for early August, running alongside a Country Fair at Glamis Castle
The team at established event centre, Auchlishie Eventing will be putting on a spectacular show in the superb setting of Glamis Castle in August 2019. In addition to affiliated BE eventing, there will be a Country Fair to attract spectators from across Scotland and the north.
Running classes from BE 80(T) up to Novice in the first year and with on-site stabling, this is a great event for the grass roots eventers to come along to. Organiser, James Helyer, says “this is an exciting new venture for us and we could not be luckier with the venue – not only is it a stunning place for an event, but the staff at Glamis could not be more accommodating. The event slots neatly into a gap in the Scottish calendar, so we are hoping for good support from the northern eventing community”.
The cross country courses will be designed by BE A-list Course Designer and Platinum Course Builder Adrian Ditcham, who was the lead builder at the London 2012 Olympics. The courses will wind through the natural parkland and go through the most amazing water complex. Adrian says “the natural features of the parkland will make choosing the route easy – my job will be to ask the right questions in the right places in order to offer a fun challenge to competitors at all levels.”
The main ring will have show jumping throughout the event and a natural amphitheatre gives a great view over the centre of the event.
The Country Fair will take place alongside the horse trials and in addition to an array of tradestands, there will be food and craft tents and other countryside attractions for the public to enjoy. Assistant Organiser, Thomas Helyer says he is “relishing the challenge of putting on this new event and looking forward to working with a new team to provide an event that has something for everyone”.
