Horse & Hound Festival of Eventing in association with KBISFollowing the success of the first Horse & Hound unaffiliated three-day event in 2017, the event will be returning in 2018 at the same venue (Keysoe in Bedfordshire) on 25–28 May 2018. This year the event will be known as the Horse & Hound Festival of Eventing in association with KBIS.

The event will have classes at 70cm, 80cm, 90cm and 1m, with no pre-qualification necessary. The event will run close to FEI short-format CCI with dressage taking place on Saturday, cross-country on Sunday, followed by a horse inspection and showjumping on Bank Holiday Monday. There will be no roads and tracks or steeplechase phases.

A full schedule for this event is now available, while entries opened on Monday 2 April.
