Somerley Park has become the latest British Eventing (BE) casualty of the wet weather, cancelling its 25-26 March fixture.

Organiser Suzannah Cotterill said: “The water levels at Somerley Park have reached such a point that we cannot access the ground to finish event preparations, which unfortunately leaves us with no option other than to cancel.

“The hope is by cancelling now, members will be able to re-route and make alternative competition plans.”

Somerley’s mid-week fixture was due to run classes from BE100 to CIC2* level.

BE sport operations manager Chris Farr added: “It is such a pity to cancel Somerley. We are currently exploring the viability of rescheduling Somerley later in the calendar with the organisers.”

Moreton, Tweseldown (1) and Somerford Park (1) have all cancelled already this season, while Aston-le-Walls (1) and Stafford (1) have had to be re-scheduled.
