The year is going so quickly, we are already working on our third event of the season which will be Brand Hall, following a very wet spring we had a successful Stafford Horse Trials in March and although a very damp build up to Weston Park in April the team pulled off a great event finishing in sunshine, what a relief when so many events were cancelled around us. Onwards and upwards now to Brand Hall the sun and wind is doing a tremendous job and the team is working extremely hard in preparation for Brand Hall.

Both Charles Owen and Racesafe return for their British Championship sections which are always hotly contested under the watchful eye of the selectors as these youngsters battle for a place on the team. Eventing stalwarts David and Catherine Witt support the CIC* an important section giving many new stars their first outing in an International arena lined with trade stands.

The course for these 3 International sections will follow mainly the same route as 2015 but the order flow and balance of the course will come from different combinations on this undulating park land. Education and confidence building is always high on the agenda for the courses at Brand Hall. As this will probably be the first time competitors have run the extra distance required for these International level sections fitness of both horse and rider will come into play.

This year we will have a Novice Regional Final on the Saturday Sponsored by a local company Graham Heath Equestrian Structures who specialise in producing premium quality steel frame buildings for equestrian use. Graham Heath Equestrian Structures will also sponsor all the Novice sections and this Sponsorship is a huge boost for Brand Hall we are delighted to receive this support.

The final day will see the Show jumping phase of the International sections with both Racesafe and Charles Owen sections will receive mounted prize giving. The cross country course on Sunday will be dominated by the Blue Chip BE90 sections. Any less experienced competitors will have time to watch and learn in this most wonderful park with its Georgian house as a back drop.

Entries are open. The Brand Hall team looks forward to welcoming competitors and supporters to the Event this June. Regular updates and more about the sponsors will continue on the web site.
