Express eventing

Date: 4 June
Venue: Diamond Equestrian, Leicester
Details: “A fun and low key relaxed express eventing for all to enjoy! Dressage, then some time to change tack and have a rest then showjumping, followed straight away by the cross-country with no time to change. Heights range from around 2ft to 3ft with the option to ‘super express’ your entry which means you opt out of doing a dressage test. Running under eventing rules, there will be eight showjumping fences with a double and 12 to 15 cross-country fences. Rosettes for those placed first to sixth place and goodies for first place. All classes are timed on the cross-country phase and it will be a secret time. In the event of a tie we will go on collective dressage marks and if there is still a tie it will then be the closest to the time wins.”
