How to get there

Go through Kimbolton then pick up the B660 to Keysoe. The event is sited eight miles north of Bedford on the B660. Postcode MK44 2JP.

What the organisers say

Major reseeding and track widening has been undertaken this winter. Courses will be designed by Eric Winter and Angus Smales, and built by Dominic Moore. The slow routes will be suitable for first-timers, the direct routes will be sufficient for those well established at that level.

Keysoe (1) and (2) will run on completely different course layouts.

Four dressage arenas are on a surface, the rest and working-in are on well-established, dedicated turf. The showjumping and working-in is on a waxed surface.

Licensed café and permanent on-site stables.
