Aldon Horse Trials is holding a CCI* following the cancellation of Weston Park

Aldon, the final fixture on this year’s British Eventing calendar, will host a CCI* for the first time due to the cancellation of Weston Park. The event in Hampshire begins this Thursday (18 October) and runs until Sunday.

Top eventers including Mary King, Matt Ryan, David Green and America’s Cindy Rawson, are entered for what will be a truly intenational competition. Riders from Japan, South Africa, Hong Kong, Denmark, France and Italy are also expected.

A two-day novice and one-day pre-novice sections are also being run. Car parking is £5, including all occupants. For details (tel: 01935 872482).
