    How to get there

    At Organsdale Farm, Middlewich Road, Kelsall, Tarporley, Cheshire CW6 0SR. The event is 10 miles north of Chester on the A54 (M6 junction 18).

    What the organisers say

    Kelsall Hill is situated in the ideal place to host an event. There is ample parking with none of the sections of the event being too far away and a large number of varied tradestands.

    The dressage area has been laser-levelled with ample room between arenas. The large showjumping arena allows us to move the fences if the ground gets poached. The course is built by professional designer Sue Barrett.

    The undulating cross-country course is kept solely for the use of the BE events. The fences are built to a high standard by professional fence builders (David Evans and team); the course is designed by Mark Phillips. Both the fences and layout of the course are continually updated and altered. There is water in the middle of the course and a ski jump later on. If necessary the ground will be agri-vated.
