We are delighted to announce that we will be holding The Pony Club Open Eventing Championships, the PC110, at the prestigious Wellington International Horse Trials and Country Fair at Hook, Hampshire. The event is running over the weekend of August 29th-31st 2021.
August Bank Holiday weekend is set to be a busy one!
- Monday 30th will see most of the Dressage and Show Jumping taking place. Due to the large number of entries some Dressage tests may need to be performed on the afternoon of Sunday 29th. Please email email@example.com if you are unable to compete on the Sunday.
- Tuesday 31st will see our competitors battle it out on the XC course to crown our 2021 PC110 Eventing Champions. The XC will take place first thing on Tuesday morning.
Entries close Friday 6th August and stabling is available one mile from the venue, to book it please contact Gabby at ridingshows@Wellington.co.uk.
We appreciate this is at the same time as many of our Grassroots Regional Championships, however, our Eventing Committee Chairman, Charlotte Rowell, and a team of volunteers have worked tirelessly to secure the best venue for our Eventing members to compete at the highest level.
In a busy season of activity with much uncertainty, Wellington organiser David Sheerin, and his team have given Pony Club members such a fabulous opportunity to compete at a great event and in excellent international company.
We would like to thank David Sheerin and his team who rose to the challenge of helping The Pony Club and we are grateful for their flexibility and support. Wellington International Horse Trials and Country Fair is going to be a fantastic event for all, and I look forward to seeing our talented Members out on the course!
