Organisers of a new Scottish eventing series hope to provide more opportunities for riders, after a number of affiliated venues stopped running horse trials. H&H finds out more
A new unaffiliated eventing group in Scotland is aiming to “reinvigorate” the calendar by offering more opportunities for riders and support for venues.
The Scottish Eventing Group hopes to increase the number of affordable events and “address the drop-off” in eventing opportunities in the country. Since 2018, Scotland has lost British Eventing (BE) fixtures including Hendersyde, Aswanley, Floors Castle, Scotsburn and Eglinton. Glamis Castle joined the calendar in 2019, and for 2021 there are six BE venues, plus the international horse trials at Blair Castle.
