Preparations for the Swalcliffe Park Horse Trials are well under way and the event site is looking great!
The footing is near to perfect and there is good grass cover in all areas of the event site.
We are very lucky at Swalcliffe Park to have such well draining soil so any rain we get before the event wont make the going too soft.
The course is being flagged today and tomorrow the pegging and stringing of the tracks will be completed.
The dressage and show jumping arenas are being constructed and the whole place is beginning to look like an Event site.
The Swalcliffe Park Horse Trials again proves to be popular with competitors with wait lists in all classes.
We are expecting over 500 competitors including Irish Team member Aoife Clark who was placed 7th at London Games, American Olymipc team member Tiana Coudray, as well as more local riders such as Jodie Amos and Ginny Howe.
All we need to do is arrange for some sunshine with the weather Gods and we should be in for a fabulous event.
