Burnham Beeches Horse Trials 18th & 19th August 2012

July 22, 2012

What a difficult year this has been for everyone, the poor horses are fit and raring to go, only to have the event cancelled at the last moment due to the weather. What a terrible part the weather plays in equestrian sport, only two years ago we had to cancel due to the drought!

However it is full steam ahead here at Snowball. The planning and preparation for the Burnham Beeches Horse Trials is well under way. The entries have opened online and we already have a good response, with the number of entries rising daily.

At the time of writing we have an entry from our first international competitor, who is bringing his young horses to the event as part of their schooling.

Planning the horse trials is a huge operation, with over 500 riders expected across the two days. With staff, volunteers and local businesses all joining together to do everything from printing leaflets, advertisement, fence judging, dressage writing and traffic control!

We always need new volunteers to help us. So if you can offer some time on the 18th/19th August please do let us know. Full training will be given, so don’t worry if it’s your first time helping us with an event.

It will be an exciting weekend for riders, horses, staff and volunteers alike. Get involved or just come along and watch.

Hope to see you there!
