    What the organisers say

    Eden Valley is a great starter and concluding event for the season in the northern region and for all newcomers to the sport. With a compact layout, friendly organising team and straightforward courses this event welcomes some 450-500 competitors at each running.
    There are three class levels from BE80(T) to BE100 and this fixture will have a BE100plus too.

    The showjumping will once again be sited on the outdoor surface over flowing courses built by John Collier. Eden Valley (1) is the final round of the Grassroots Grand Slam carried over from 2014, which sees Henny Cooper trying for a third consecutive win at this popular venue to take home a £1,000 cash prize.

    A main sponsor is being sought for Eden Valley’s two fixtures and the organisers would be happy to hear from any business prepared to support them.
