New venue found for British Showjumping winter finals

  • British Showjumping (BS) is “delighted” to have found a new home for the winter finals, less than a week after it was announced the London Spring International would not take place.

    Six championships will now take place on 14-16 April at Addington Manor, Buckinghamshire.

    The classes were due to be held at the first London Spring International at the ExCel in London but last Friday (27 January) it was announced the ExCel directors wanted to postpone the show for a year for financial reasons.

    Addington Manor show organiser Tim Price said: “I am extremely pleased that we have been awarded the finals and for us to be in the position of building an exciting new spring championship show in which to incorporate them.

    “The schedule and timetable will be available shortly and we look forward to welcoming all competitors to the show in April.”
