    How to get there

    Postcode SY22 6LG. Lower House Farm is six miles from Oswestry and 13 miles from Shrewsbury on the B4398 between Llanymynech and Maesbrook.

    Vehicles over 7.5 tonnes are advised to approach from the A5 end of the B4398 to avoid a weight-restricted bridge on the B4398 just south of the village centre.

    What the organisers say

    Llanymynech is uniquely situated on the Welsh/English border, which means you compete in two countries at the same event.

    The course runs mainly over old turf that is relatively flat with no steep hills, giving an inviting, straightforward and attractively designed and presented track which is up to height at all levels.

    For 2015 we are introducing a further water complex and two bank areas, with educational use of fences and elements in all areas. Ground preparation, including landing and take-offs, will be undertaken.

    The dressage is situated in a flat, well-spaced area with a large warm-up. The showjumping grass arena is central to the event with a spacious warm-up area. It is surrounded on two sides by tradestands, giving plenty of opportunity for spectators to watch and shop.

    Excellent parking gives good access to all areas.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our events in 2015.
