British Eventing (BE) is asking all riders who are unable to qualify for the CCI*** at Bramham because of the cancellation of Chatsworth on Sunday to contact the BE office.

BE is considering scheduling an extra event to allow riders to qualify, but needs to know how many people have been affected.

Sport manager Paul Graham told H&H: “We have been inundated by calls from people who have now not managed to qualify for Bramham. The only CIC*** between now and then is Tattersalls [in Ireland] and the organisers there only have space for three more riders.

“We need everyone who still needs to qualify to contact the BE office — we are looking at other events to see if they have the capacity to take on a CIC*** and if there are enough people our case [with the International Equestrian Federation (FEI)] will be much stronger.”

The second day of competition at Chatsworth was called off due to a waterlogged course, meaning the cancellation of the HSBC FEI World Cup qualifier and the CIC*** and advanced sections.
