Preparations are well underway here at Bicton Arena for our second 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** & CIC* combinations to gain experience competing in such an atmospheric arena.
The cross country tracks will follow a similar route to the April Horse Trials with both the CIC** & CIC* doing a loop through the Main Arena. Both tracks will be suitable for first-timers at this level. The Intermediate and Novice tracks will also have alternatives at the more difficult fences making them suitable for less experienced combinations, as well as having plenty to challenge those looking for preparation before the next step up.
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 daily 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 see The Eventing Family charity fundraising party take place. This promises to be a night to remember. For more information and to purchase tickets please visit www.eventingfamily.com
Stabling is being offered at a very competitive price of just £50 for the duration of the event.
Bicton Arena is giving prizes to the winning owners and grooms in ALL sections from BE100 – CIC**
