Festival of the Horse – cancelled

It is with deep regret that I am emailing you to let you know that further to a site visit today, and consultation with Peter and Andrew, the Festival of the Horse due to take place this weekend has been cancelled due to the weather. The team here at HQ and at Aston have tried extremely hard to work around the challenging conditions, and it is a huge disappointment to us all.

Please see the attached official statement regarding this disappointing news. Festival of the Horse – cancelled

The Area 15 Dressage Qualifier

The Area 15 Dressage Qualifier is coming up soon on Saturday 21st June @ Howick Farm near Chepstow. This competition is on grass. It would be great for VOARC to send a team or two!  dressage logo
There is a Senior Prelim team – 4 riders all ride Prelim 12- and a Senior Open team – 3 riders to ride a Novice test & 1 rider to ride Elementary 44.

There is also a Junior team of 4 riders with 3 riding a Prelim test and 1 riding Novice 30.

There are 12 classes ranging from Walk & Trot, Prelims, Riding tests, Pairs, Novices, an Elementary and a Medium so there is something for everyone!!
