Somerley Park (2) Horse Trials – Saturday 27th – Sunday 28th June 2015
We are delighted to announce that a second British Eventing fixture at Somerley Park will be held on the magnificent estate of the Earl of Normanton to replace the recently cancelled Salperton Horse Trials in the BE calendar.
There will be all levels of Intermediate classes including a prestigious Advanced Intermediate and an Open Intermediate Under-21.
In addition to the impressive list of classes on offer, those seeking to qualify their winning Novice horses for the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe have the opportunity to enter the hotly contested Novice Regional Final (NRF) at Somerley (2).
Event Organiser Suzie Cotterill, on behalf of Eleda Equestrian Limited said: “In order to provide competitors with a replacement for the recently cancelled Salperton Horse Trials, Somerley Park will put on another event this year. This is the second time in recent years that Somerley has stood up to the plate to provide an alternative event at relatively short notice, having replaced Wilton in 2012 with just two weeks notice before.”
Suzie added: “With the demise of an event that was significant to competitors seeking qualifications for the important NRF, as well as looking to earn other grading points, we decided that it would be in the best interests of the sport and the riders to organise this replacement event.
“Since we normally run in the early spring, we look forward to welcoming everyone to a green and sunny Somerley Park in June too.”
British Eventing would like to thank Suzie Cotterill and her team at Somerley Park Horse Trials for their efforts in stepping up to offer a replacement competition opportunity for riders in the region.
