World Cup eventing qualifier will be at Gatcombe

The British Open Championship at Gatcombe will now incorporate the British HSBC FEI World Cup eventing qualifier, after its original fixture at Chatsworth Horse Trials (16-17 May), was cancelled due to wet weather.

The qualifier at the Festival of British Eventing (7-9 August) is the last before the World Cup final in Strzegom, Poland (21-23 August).

As well as the Open — in which the highest-placed British rider is crowned national champion — the festival also includes the British intermediate and novice championships, classes that often highlight stars of the future.
