    Arena horse trials

    Date: 4 March
    Venue: Keysoe, Bedfordshire
    Details: “Classes from 70cm to 1m with an optional dressage phase. The dressage and warm-up for it will be on an all-weather surface. The showjumping will be indoors, followed immediately by a short course of portable cross-country fences in an outdoor all-weather arena. Typically there will be five fences below the maximum height, followed by five at the maximum height with a water splash. Fences will be laid out to allow a reasonable pace, and to have some feel of being cross-country not working hunter.”
