    How to get there

    Bovington is 10 miles east of Dorchester off the A35 at Bere Regis and approx 15 miles west of Wimborne off the A31 (in both cases follow signs for tank museum).

    What the organisers say

    The dressage is on manicured lawns, with Paul Thomas’ showjumping tracks on a surface in a 60x40m arena.

    The cross-country is over flat terrain. Adrian Ditcham’s fences are a mix of portables and permanents, with good take-offs and landings.

    Last year we invested in a bigger and more professional water complex, which will be used in all classes.

    The courses suit all levels. The BE90 and BE100 tracks are suitable for inexperienced combinations as there are alternatives.
