How to get there
East of Nottingham, three miles from the A52/A46 roundabout.
What the organisers say
Shelford has flat, level dressage areas. The showjumping, designed by Beau Woods, is held in a large arena on well-draining ground on old turf.
The cross-country runs over flat terrain and includes water and some woodland. The ground is light and sandy and will stand up to heavy rain. It is good in both dry and wet conditions. Fences are a mix of permanent and portable, designed to be inviting and encouraging for all levels.
The courses will regularly change route and direction to provide variety at each event. They are designed to encourage all levels. Reduced grazing in 2015 will allow good grass cover at both events.
